“Where words leave off, music begins.”

Heinrich Heine

Sing that song with all your heart and soul

A guitarist, vocalist and occasional recording artist, I perform at fund-raising events for charity organizations, churches, and elsewhere. At the foundation of my art is the desire to provide joy to others via a unique musical style.  Working with many performers from all over the country, my goal is to create an engaged listening experience for a variety of audiences. Having a party? I might be just the right addition to your event.

Most recently, I’ve been recording at Starbell Hatchery in Northern Illinois. Under the expert guidance of musician and producer John Hegner, we’ve collaborated to produce the cover songs Always Remember Us This Way (originally sung by Lady Gaga), and Fall for You (sung by Etta James).

Unsteady was originally performed by the X-Ambassadors. Following a debilitating accident in 2015 (see my Concussion/TBI page on this site), I struggled with balance and vision issues and it was a desperate situation. The song spoke to me because the singer was desperate and begging for help. I recorded Unsteady at Signals Music Studio in Crystal Lake, Illinois. Jake Lizzio is an amazing guitar instructor, recording engineer, and YouTube guitar sensation. I expect many more great achievements from him and hope to again collaborate on future projects.
