About
I have a song catalog of over thirty tunes composed since I began this endeavor in 2012. I've played my originals at Buffa's Lounge in New Orleans and have been invited three times to play at the Brink Lounge in Madison WI. My membership in the Madison Songwriters Guild has been invaluable in my growth as a writer.

Songwriting Achievements:
I've been musically involved with Madison for over thirty years, as a bassist, singer, reed player, Cajun musician, and lately a singer/songwriter. My greatest influences come from the South, especially new Orleans, a place I consider my musical epicenter. As Ernie K-Doe once said, "I don't know, but I think all music came from New Orleans." I play a variety of instruments to various degrees of competence: tenor and alto saxes, guitar, bass, and button accordions. My greatest strength musically is a great ear, although I do read jazz charts and other music. Songwriting is fun, I love the challenge, and there are so many past and present songwriting masters from whom to learn. I brew beers and ciders, too, which complement
music in many ways!
Personal Songwriting Goals:
A further exploration of the music galaxy, in collaboration with another explorer.
Collaboration Goals:
niche/independent artist release, just for fun

Most would consider New Orleans to be the funkiest music capital of the U.S. I celebrate that here!

RIVER OF HAPPINESS !
A nonreligious gospel tune if ever you heard one. I draw from the soul well of Birmingham, AL where I grew up in the days of civil rights marches.
