"The greatest compliment a songwriter can receive is to have another musician embrace one of their works and to transform it into how they hear the song. 

I have been lucky enough to have been performing my songs to listeners in the Pacific Northwest for the last two decades and now this site will allow me to share my music with you and to a much larger audience.

My music has been sampled by DJ Shadow on his 2003 release Diminishing Returns and covered by: Pink Flames (The Vinyl Factory 2016), Electric Child House (2017) and Astronauts etc (Backatcha Records 2019). Backatcha Records also re-released the early seventies psych-rock grail, Just A Star  that I co-wrote with Larry Smith for UK Record Store Day 2019.

I hope that you will explore and enjoy the music that you find here. If you find a song here that captures your interest and aligns with your spirit, please feel free to contact me".
