January 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
I grew up on the Jersey Shore in the 60’s watching Johnny Cash and Dean Martin on TV and listening to everything from Hank Williams, etc. and 50’s rock n roll (thanks to my parents) to 60’s thru 80’s pop/ rock and country. Some of my writing influences are the Eagles, John Denver, Elton John, Stephen Bishop, Johnny Cash, George Strait & Ricky Skaggs. I wrote my first song at age 9 (a train song…go figure!). Around that time, my two younger brothers and I formed a band and performed together for many years. In the late 70’s, we recorded 5 of my original songs in a local studio. When my brothers went to college, I formed a country cover band and continued writing. In 1984, I came to Nashville to pitch some of my songs to a songwriter friend of friend hit songwriter who worked at Welk music. Unfortunately, to no avail. So I went home with my tail between my legs but kept writing. Several years later, I recorded 4 songs in Austin, Texas through a small independent record label there and reached #20 on the Independent Country Charts with my first release. Soon after, I returned to Nashville for a showcase and shortly after made the move to Music City. Since then, I’ve recorded 2 albums and am about to release my 3rd. Mostly, I tend to write about personal experiences. A friend once said of my music, “If you ever want to know about his life, just listen to his songs!” I’ve had one song cut by Christian artist, David Phelps and continue to write and perform as often as I can.
My latest upcoming release is a 19 song cornucopia of acoustic to full band cuts that transcend my many musical influences throughout my life using some of Nashville’s finest musicians or just me and a guitar (plus a cello). I have everything from country to big band to cowboy yodeling! It’s kind of (but not literally) my life story in songs, part of my legacy in a way. At least, that’s how I see it.
