BIO

I truly believe that once a song is released, it takes on a life of it’s own! If you’re a recording artist or a music publisher and you like one or more of the songs, please contact me. I hold exclusive rights to all songs.

I grew up in a small country town in eastern Connecticut. I’m now retired and working on my song catalog. For many years, I DJ’d a weekly radio show at WHUS, STORRS. My show was a tribute to the Great American Songbook. Please scroll down through the (8) pictures below to enjoy and play any complete song listed to the right of each picture. All songs are streamed for free for your enjoyment.
