Nominee for the Charlotte Music Awards 2013 for Singer/Songwriter. I will be playing in the Singer Songwriter Showcase, Sept 15th. 2013

I have returned to the music scene after taking 18 years off to record a new cd of songs that I wrote in those years. I am looking forward to playing again. My first trip back was to a crowd of a thousand, and I was quite nervous, but it didn't take long to get rid of the nerves and find a groove. Born and Raised in the upstate of South Carolina, I grew up with a lot of great musicians. One of them was, Buddy Strong. I teamed up with my friend and producer Buddy Strong, originally a founding member of the Garfeel Ruff band, to record at his studio, Southeastern Sound. The Album contains a variety of songs that reach accross several genres, from Rock to Accoustic Rock, Country, and two even feature just folk instruments. I'm am naming the album, "The Dog, The Cat and The Mirror". For the last two decades, when people would ask where I was playing or who i was playing with, my class clown instincts would kick in and I would tell them, I play for the Dog, the Cat, and the Mirror. I'm excited to be playing again.
