Singer, Songwriter, Composer, & Keynote Speaker
Age 11: Two experiences converged that set the trajectory of my life:
(1.) Strummed a one finger G chord on a baritone ukulele. The skies parted. A lifelong musical learning curve began.
(2.) Habitually snuck a transistor radio* to bed.
*a transportation device that introduced me to an irresistible world of singers and songwriters.
Age 13: Life dream is set:
Make music. In Nashville, TN.
Age 22: Left my West Virginia home for Music City.
Age 22 - present: A winding road of peaks and valleys. Hats worn include recording artist, touring performer, songwriter, composer, actor, ,music director and band leader,
Moreover, and more importantly, I've been a husband (32 years) and a father (25 years);
easily the most creative and rewarding gigs of my life.
I've hit the top of the charts, in and around the charts, but my life has been off the charts.
Present - Future: More creatively alive than ever, creating every day; grateful for the rich tapestry of experiences that has been my life..
