"And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar" William Joel
Since I Fell For You
The Way You Look Tonight
I grew up in the once small town of Bradenton, Fl. Dad played the ukulele, Mom knew all the words, the whole family sang great gospel songs. Music has always been in my DNA.
School years were full of practicing piano, clarinet, playing in orchestras, jazz bands and accompanying choirs. After school I embraced a tough, hot, blue collar family business with my Dad. Music was always present: rehearsing the best band ever, hosting house concerts, and writing numerous songs behind the wheel of a big rig. In 2008 I traded in the Semi for a piano and have been performing full time since.
Songwriting is a great pleasure. I have been blessed with an amazing studio, the Thayerhouse Theater. It is a wonderful house concert venue, recording studio and practice space. Lord willing, the years ahead will include new recordings, videos, and all things creative inspired by decades of grit, diesel fumes, art and stage.
