I'm a songwriter based in Fort Mill, South Carolina, a longtime songwriter who is getting back into the music business and pro songwriting after a long hiatus. ...
I was born in Brooklyn NY and raised on Long Island, NY,moved to the East-Side of Manhattan .... I started to play guitar and write songs at a young age . Growing up, I was inspired by listening to such artists as the Eagles , Allman Brothers, Steely Dan ,Peter Frampton, Candy Dulfer, Earth ,Wind & Fire , Jame Taylor ... on & on ..... most of the classic R& B / rock groups and more recently it's been pretty much ... Bach to Rock .!!
In the late '80s I had some success, getting placements with a few label artists. At the time I was writing more R&B / Club music,& was voted top amateur songwriter in New York City by ASCAP !
I collaborated with a several great writers over the years and co-wrote a song 'Cry Baby' for Polydor artist Nikki, as well as four singles for singer Donna Marie and had placements with other artists who were signed to Covert Records .. Covert Records was a label owned by Billy Joel's sax player, Richie Cannata."
Stopped writing for 20 yrs to start a new career and raise a family ......in 2010 .... picked up the guitar again and here we are !!(smile)
A picture paints a thousand words ...a song paints a thousand pictures !!.( Rob Cariddi)
