I'm fortunate to have been writing and singing since the late sixties and working at making music in NYC, the Boston area and points in between. Music has always been an important part of my life, and creating songs that describe a particular slice-'o-life by adding a slightly different point of view has always been an attraction to me. Accoustic in its presentation, my music runs through the range of folk-style, country, blues and contemporary, with an empathis on socially relevant themes. My guides here have been Woodie Gutherie, Dylan, Pete Seeger among many others.
Major music writing influences have been Dylan, The Beatles, Tom Waites, Van Morrison, Nina Simone (phrasing) and other artists that presents feelings in such a way that shows a different point of view and that adds an additional slant to our perception of what that experience or emotion contained in that song is.
