‘The Fools Mask’ is my 6th Independent album release and the crowning achievement of my entire career as a songwriter. I think you are all going to be blown away by this album! I decided to take a more patient approach, which ultimately led to a huge improvement in the overall sound quality of the recordings and my vocals. When it was all said and done, the new album took 2 1/2 years and over 1,500 hours of work to complete. Need a little hype? Well, this new CD is loosely based upon the ongoing battle between good and evil (the 7 heavenly virtues/the 7 deadly sins). A very fitting topic for the times we are living in. Despite the dark subject matter, things are done in a very catchy/classy way and good will ultimately prevail. There are, however, plenty of shocks and surprises along the way (ex: 'Everything", where I use a lower register voice to actually play the role of the devil). Need some more song hype? 6 of the songs on the new album are remakes of songs from my previous 5 releases; Everything (Songs From The Gallery), Shake For Me Now (Like The Freak You Are), Best Days Of Your Life (Crazy Like A Fox), The Freaks Waltz (Folklore & Superstitions) and Shady Deal & Alone With You (The Hollywood Blacklist). These 6 songs are all amazing and very unique. They added a lot of color and personality to the new album and will also help to keep my previous releases relevant. Need a little star power? Well, Butch Thomas who plays saxophone in "Snake Oil" has also played/toured with the likes of Jaco Pastorius, Sting, Lenny Kravitz and many others. Amazing musician!! If blazing lead guitar is your thing, then Dennis Stadelman is going to blow you all away with his lead work in 'Shady Deal'. Another amazing musician!! Back in November 2016, I had the honor of being chosen as a background actor for the Netflix series 'Bloodline". It was an unforgettable experience! Met many of the stars, crews, techs and had a blast! I am in 6 background scenes in episode 4 of season 3 (4 as a boat yard employee and 2 in a church). Season 3 of Bloodline was officially released on May 26, 2017. Song #13 on my new CD, "The Damage Is Done" was inspired by the Bloodline series. Are you a fan of ultra-creative instrumentals? If so, then I guarantee you are going to love 'Ghoulash' & 'The Freaks Waltz' remix. Both songs are a blast! I saved some of the best for last, 4 of the songs on the new CD that I think have the most potential to be hit songs are; 'Meet Again Some Day', 'No More Lonely Nights', 'If Only For A While' & 'Alone With You'. All 4 are relationship based songs, which is definitely something that we can all relate to. A couple of them actually are somewhat built around real life experiences. Need a couple more relationship songs? Well, last but not least; 'That Voice In My Head' is a cool/clever retro British rocker about overcoming fears and 'One Crazy Night' is a catchy/melancholy song about hope and miracles. One final aside that I have to share with everyone. The actual fools mask with the 7 deadly sins, used on the front cover, is my own creation. I ran the mask and the background picture (an old vacant church) through my photo editor where the effects and text were added. Well this image is perfect for the 7 deadly sins side of things, but what about the heavenly virtues? Well, for all of you who decide to purchase a physical copy of my CD, please take a moment to check out the back cover. One day I was using my digital editor and messing around with a picture of an old rustic window and what emerged!! Yes its true ..... its an image of Jesus doing a fist pump! Pure magic!! What more can I possibly say than .... yah gotta check out this album!!!

This is the 2nd single release from my new "Folklore & Superstitions" Cd (15 songs, 2013). The song is sung from the perspective of a vagrant (ne'er do well) who is questioning his faith while searching for signs to help him along his way. The video is a meandering venture down the crossroads that will ultimately leave you feeling humbled and inspired. Hope you like it and Happy Holidays :)
