My Original Music

The Back Story...

I began playing drums at the age of 9 or 10. At 20, I began writing lyrics and singing playing guitar. From 1973 to 1983 I wrote 180 songs... two-thirds of which were ballads and one-third of which was comedy. I recorded two record albums, played lots of coffeehouses and played some concerts. Around the time I turned 30, I switched my focus to synthesizers and wrote about 100 instrumental pieces.

I recently uncovered and digitized some recordings from that era and have included some samples here.
