Welcome to my website!
It is certainly a long time coming…
Having put out my first record in the late 20th century and my second slightly later that same epoch, it is with great excitement that I debut the third. “Raven” will come out officially on Groundhog Day 2013, and it is my hope that it will do better than my first two combined.
That shouldn’t be too difficult.
The wonderful thing about releasing music these days is that it can be done without the aid and caprices of large corporations. Having been someone who never quite fit into a mould, I celebrate the infinitely more inclusive climate of today. A well-known music industry mogul who couldn’t quite wrap his head around what I was (or was not) once asked me: “Are you rock, or are you pop?” The answer was and remains “Neither” or “Both” or “Who the hell cares?”
I write songs about things that interest me, I sing songs written by others that I like — if I feel I can do them justice. I spend a lot of time thinking about other things, notably improving the lives of those at the end of life. I can say without reservation that I have never been happier. I am married to a psychologist of Native-American extraction and have three beautiful and brilliant daughters, all of whom have more talent than I ever did.
So welcome! I hope you enjoy the site, the music and whatever else shows up…
