Welcome to my home online - especially now, during the pandemic.

As the songs keep flowing, work on my next (fourth) album is proceeding more rapidly than I dreamed possible. But first things first:

- The new CURIOSITY album is now available, as are recent singles from it, Love at First Sight, Sweet Dreams. They can be obtained through the website store.

- To those who have long come along for the ride... discovered my music recently... or supported me through purchases of CDs and songs... I cannot thank you enough!

- As drinking alone ranks right up there with "watching paint dry," let's make this - as music has always been for me - a journey together. Sign up on the site's email list further down the homepage, and don't hesitate to say hello - via the Contact tab. Share your opinion about any of the songs... features you'd like to see included... or anything you feel like, on any subject, even the weather. (If you decide to buy something, I won't try and talk you out of it, but believe me, it's not as if I'm expecting you to put my stuffed animals through college!)

Sure hope you are doing WELL!

Here's a new song for our times, Where now being released during a very different stroll through July...

A FEW THOUGHTS ABOUT THE MUSIC BUSINESS

Though we are living in an age of popular music increasingly all about the individual streamed song, I'd like to say this: 

If you do like a song or two of mine, as you come to learn more about me, it's likely you'll find that for me, it's much more about the entire album.

As a symphony has more than just one movement and cannot be properly expressed in several short minutes, my songs were not originally written and recorded as singles. Yes, they've mostly come into being one at a time, but generally as part of the greater whole of an album.

The first album, PICTURES, released at the end of 2015, was really just that: each song conveying/expressing/relating to a picture, and the whole thing like a complete photo album containing those images. The songs on the next album. 2017's WAKING UP, explored different avenues of awakening. Can you guess what I'm about to say about 2020's CURIOSITY collection?

Right you are - I would encourage you to do as I did when first discovering the songwriting heroes of mine - Cat Stevens, Jackson Browne, Neil Young, JIm Croce, Joni Mitchell, Graham Nash, Ralph McTell, Dan Fogelberg, Pete Seeger, Bruce "The Boss," Paul Simon... and give the artist - in this case, me - the opportunity to share ideas and speak his mind in greater depth than just a song or two, here or there.

Bottom line: If you're looking for richer musical experiences, then please check out these ALBUMS!

The new album, Curiosity, will soon be released officially -here, there and everywhere...

For those whose curiosity can't wait, buy Curiosity here and now - "Add to Cart" on the homepage or go to the site's Store tab.

Thanks again for visiting. Your support means more than you might imagine. Please stay safe!
