Many thanks to the Soundcloud community for the great support and inspiration!

Several months ago I thought I'd try Soundcloud. The intention was mostly to "house" my songs somewhere safe and maybe begin writing some new tunes.

A few years ago I threw away a box of unlabeled cassetes & CD's with 100's of song ideas that were becoming a source of confusion and growing discomfort.

Me humming melodies in every style with ridiculous lyrics and annoying guitar sounds and terrible drum machine beats.and worse.

I'm certain I threw away a handful of good ones but it was not worth the stress.

More mishaps and confusion, more lost songs and malfunctioning recorders and computers, I needed a break. I took a 5 year break.

I was getting old(er) and becoming a different guy. So I started writing songs and posting them as I wrote 'em.

I have no grand plan, I'm happy enough to have my 2 little girls listen to these years from now.

I've recently completed collaborations with Pall Of A Past World "Winnebago", Shoemansky "Homesick", Bergman "Ian Brown" & "Stoned Butterfly", Steph Casey "My Lovely Letterbox" & "A Love To Stay In For", "The Sandman's Orchestra "To Haunt You", and Sink\Sink "Hardbitten".

I had a great time doing these and I look forward to exploring more opportunities to collaborate as time allows.

A brief history:

Former member guitarist/songwriter for NYC's Blues/Punk/Hard Rock Band Circus of Power (RCA & Sony/Columbia Records)

NY Loose (Punk Pop w/Shock, Fiction, Flipside & Hollywood Records)

The Silos (RCA, Bloodshot, etc. still record/write with them here and there),

Screaming Sneakers (Pop Punk from Miami/NYC..more than a few years ago)

Soundtrack contributions to "End Of Days" (Guns N Roses), "The Burbs" (Circus of Power), The Crow (NY Loose), "Whatever" (Walter Salas Humara)

Sessions including Guns N Roses & Gravity Kills.

Thanks for stopping by. Means a lot. I appreciate your comments a great deal.
