    Thanks for checking out my BandCamp page. A native of Washington, D.C., I am now based in Vero Beach, Florida. I’m a self-taught guitarist/songwriter and my influences range from the amazing music of the 60’s (when I was a teen) and 70's to the great rock bands of today. In the late 60’s/early 70’s I had the good fortune to be a part-time roadie working the DC area, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York for a number of bands. They included; The Jeff Beck Group, Ten Years After, The Doors, The Who, Savoy Brown, ELP and many others. So I had some interesting influences.
    In Vero Beach, I have some awesome collaborators including the truly amazing guitarist Dave Scott (www.musicbydavescott.com) who also provides all the vocals, vocal melodies and recording of my songs. On bass is Peter George who has toured with many bands all over the country. I’ve worked with two great drummers; Tony Rodriguez (on ‘I Always Get My Way’ and ‘I Can’t Take You Any More’) and Brian Cunningham (on the rest of the songs). Local singer Jerzy Nalzaro provided vocals on "Glow In The Dark Girl." I have to say I’m pretty lucky to get such seasoned pros to work with me.

Track Name: Hide From Yourself
Hide From Yourself

Tell me your troubles, tell me your pain.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
You made a girl crazy, You made Her cry.
You shot a man down and you watched him die.

Tell me your name, and I'll tell you my price.
Listen to me and hear my advice.
You gotta hide from yourself.

When trouble comes knocking, use your brain.
Get outta town, get on the next train.
Don't stop running, don't look back.
If you see the man coming, you'll have to shoot back.

Tell me your name, and I'll tell you my price.
Listen to me and hear my advice.
You gotta hide from yourself.

Well you gotta face your maker, you gotta atone.
You better quit runnin’ or you'll be all alone.
Get down on your knees and crawl on the floor.
You’re gonna learn to take shit and you'll learn to take more.

Tell me your name, and I'll tell you my price.
Listen to me and hear my advice.
You gotta hide from yourself.

Track Name: Broken Hearts & Empty Roads
Broken Hearts & Empty Roads

I was walking down a lonely lane
Lookin’ for the closest train
When she pulled up and smiled at me
Where ya goin’, what’ll it be

Broken hearts & empty roads,
Don’t look over your shoulder
Broken hearts & empty roads,
There’s nowhere else to go

We headed down to the blue highway
Looking for a place to stay
Cars and bars and local bands
We danced all night in the sand

Broken hearts & empty roads,
Don’t look over your shoulder
Broken hearts & empty roads,
There’s nowhere else to go

She turned to me and said you’re the man
I looked at her, I had no other plan
In the hotel room I declared
I gotta have you, I’m runnin’ scared

Broken hearts & empty roads,
Don’t look over your shoulder
Broken hearts & empty roads,
There’s nowhere else to go

She smiled at him in another bar
I was shocked, we’d come so far
We parted ways in Old Town Lyme
I kissed her mouth just one last time

Broken hearts & empty roads,
Don’t look over your shoulder
Broken hearts & empty roads,
There’s nowhere else to go

Broken hearts & empty roads,
Don’t look over your shoulder
Broken hearts & empty roads,
There’s nowhere else to go

Track Name: Glow In The Dark Girl (w/Jerzi Nalzaro)
Glow In The Dark Girl

Glow in the dark girl
Turn off the lights
See the shadows dance
Girl’s been unchained
Shine in dark light
Watch the luminescent shine

Gotta unwind
Gotta rewind
It’s her time to shine (Repeat Chorus)

Glow in the dark girl
Into the night
The love intertwines
Facets of bright
Fly from her eyes
Watch the luminescent shine

Gotta unwind
Gotta rewind
It’s her time to shine (Repeat Chorus)

I'm the glow in the dark girl
Who lived through the night
Saw luminescent shine
I was a light
Shot from the dark
Became luminescent shine
Became luminescent shine
Watch the luminescent shine

Track Name: Karmic Blues
Karmic Blues

Mystical visions appear high in the skies
I give you my love, I give you my lies

When we touch, we explode in many ways
Our love goes on for days and days

I left my sins behind me but love still eludes
Losing a troubled past is not a past without the blues

I don't know where I'm going but I know where I've gone
I don't know what I'm doing but I've done nothing wrong

Everything is hazy, there’s nothing in my sights
If I could only love her, I would climb to new heights

I left my sins behind me but love still eludes
Losing a troubled past is not a past without the blues
I got those Karmic blues

She was famous for one thing, but the truth was another
They said she loved girls but it actually was her brother

Allusions are so grand but rewards are so small.
They don’t mean anything, not anything at all

I left my sins behind me but love still eludes
Losing a troubled past is not a past without the blues
I got those Karmic blues
I got those Karmic blues
Yeah, I got those Karmic blues

Track Name: It's My Life
It's My Life

Life, comes by only once
My heart, doesn't skip but jumps

Love, comes by now and then
But the past, never lets me win

I can’t see the angels in the skies
I can’t see the hope in your eyes
It’s my life

Hard times, comes so easy to me
Redemption, is something I can’t see

Desire, it’s my only sin
But failure, where do I begin

I can’t see the angels in the skies
I can’t see the truth in your eyes
It’s my life

Change, you know it had to come
Resolve, I think I might have some

Devotion, as I head towards you
Salvation, as my faith renews

Now I see the angels in the skies
Now I see the love in your eyes
It’s my life, It’s my life

It's my life

Track Name: Fallen Man
Fallen Man

Pieces of my life, still belong to you
But you tear apart my soul, like you always do

A knife cutting water, doesn't always bleed
Sometimes I don't know, just what you need

Forever and always I'm a fallen man
I try to get by whenever I can
Whenever I can

I look into your eyes, like I'm in a trance
Little mysteries, slipping through my hands

When I cross the fields into paradise
You pull me back like a throw of the dice

Forever and always I'm a fallen man
I try to get by whenever I can
Whenever I can

Baby, baby, where do I belong
Tell me, tell me, please, it's been so long

Fallen Man

Track Name: Feel The Love
Feel The Love

I can’t see you
I can’t hear you
But I know you’re there

Come closer
Try to feel me
Let me know you care

Feel the love, passing through
Feel the love, me and you
Right now
Baby, right now

People passing me
There’s no talking
And I don’t know why

They’re in a hurry
They always worry
Life is speeding by

Feel the love, passing through
Feel the love, me and you
Right now
Baby, right now

I want the love to
Pass right through me
But I don’t know how

Please come back to me
You have the power
I really need you now

Feel the love, passing through
Feel the love, me and you
Right now
Baby, right now

Feel The Love

Track Name: I Always Get My Way
I Always Get My Way

Well I went to see my baby, she was mad as hell at me
I told her I was sorry and that I would have to leave

No one gets me down, no one troubles my day
I’m doing all right
I always get my way

Our troubles take us places we don’t wanna go
But when good things happen, we really gotta know

So nothing gets me down, nothing get’s in my way
I’m doing all right
I always get my way

My boss came by and told me, it was my last day
I said no need to worry, I never meant to stay

No one gets me down, no one hinders my day
I’m doing all right
I always get my way

Sometimes we walk in fear, sometimes we walk in love
So let’s just stop worrying, about the man above

Yeah, no one gets me down, no one troubles my day
I’m doing all right
I always get my way

I always get my way

Track Name: I Can't Take You Any More
I Can't Take You Any More

This ain’t a love song for ya baby
You tore my heart right outta me
There’s nothin left here for me lady
You’ve gotta leave, I gotta be free

You took my soul
There’s nothing more
There’s no love
I Can’t take you
Anymore

You spit and fight, you treat me mean
You’re a cheatin woman, you ain’t right
Where you going, where’ve you been
I can’t take another night

You took my soul
There’s nothing more
There’s no love
I Can’t take you
Anymore

Get out of here, don’t come around
I’ll throw your stuff out in the street
No more talkin, not another sound
Losing you will be a treat

You took my soul
There’s nothing more
There’s no love
I Can’t take you
Anymore

I Can’t Take You Anymore
