Have I Told You Lately That I Love You 

I am a music artist! Some times I say those words to myself and almost can't believe it. But, it's true. I write and perform music to earn my living. One thing, I know is that no matter how much I love it, I couldn't do it with YOU!  You come to shows, listen, post pictures and other social media things. You buy cds, downloads, tickets and merchandise. You share my music and invite folks to show. 

I couldn't do this without you! I am inspired by your support of what I do. I am moved by your persistent…

The Next Season 

After an amazing summer spent in the beautiful Central Australian Desert, I'm back in the States ready to continue on my musical journey. The desert challenged and inspired me both personally and creatively so I look forward to what this next season will bring. 

While I was away, I had a few opportunities to share my music; but more importantly, I was able to recharge. I mean, uninterrupted minutes, hours and even days to refill my cup and recuperate from a weariness, that I wasn't full even aware I was…Read more

Me and Al Jarreau 

I can't believe the time has come so quickly. In just a few days, I'll be opening Al Jarreau's show at the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater in Peachtree City, GA.  I'm so honored as I have such respect for Al's amazing musical gift. Looking forward to putting on a show and being a part of a great night!  I've been preparing and I'm ready; but would appreciate good thoughts and prayers for a successful night!

Keeping the music going!


Al Jarreau 

In 25 days, I will have the honor of opening a show for the one and only Al Jarreau! A little while back I was contacted and asked if I would be interested. Of course I said YES! There's no way I was going to miss an opportunity to be on that stage. Al Jarreau is a music legend and someone whose musical gifts and styling I have long admired. I would pinch myself; but that would hurt so I'm just taking it in and preparing myself to put on the show of my life. If you're interested in coming to the show, it…Read more

Warmer Weather and Hot Music 

Whew! It's been a while since my last post. Fear not! I have been working! I'm happy to report that my gig calendar has been filling up! in addition to a some great private events like weddings, graduation parties and trade shows, I've scheduled many public shows where you can come and get your groove on!  Over the next couple of months, I'll be in KY, MO, NC, GA, & IL. I'm also working on some dates up in the NY area for August. If you know me at all, you know my motto is: Have Guitar, Will Travel. I've…Read more

What the future holds.......... 

Psyched! That's the best word to describe how I'm feeling. Ten days ago, I was on a stage in Atlanta GA opening the show for world renown guitar virtuoso, Al Di Meola. It was, in many ways, a typical show. But on another level, it felt amazingly good to know that someone else was recognizing my talent.

In the creative life, it's easy to either think too highly or too little of one's self. Balance is a daily challenge and can be difficult to obtain. I didn't feel particularly worthy; but knew that all I…Read more

Living The Dream 

Sometimes as an indie artist, it's easy to get bogged down in what is not happening in your career. We so strongly want what we want and have a hard time seeing the beautiful "little" things that are going on right around us. I've been really focused this month on completing my February Album Writing Month Challenge. So focused in fact that I've been a little negligent on my duties of booking dates and performing. Don't get me wrong, February is typically a "slow" month; but it's almost like I've been in…Read more

To be or not to be.....inspired 

There are some who say that they wait for inspiration to exercise their creativity. I used to be one of them; but several years ago, I took on the February Album Writing Month songwriting challenge and that changed. In order to accomplish the goal of 14 songs in 28 days, you can't wait around for inspiration. If you do, you'll reach day 25 and have maybe 2 songs if you're lucky. 

I'm proud that I've been able to complete the challenge each year because I realized very quickly that I had to go looking for…Read more
