​​​For many, many years, I have been singing and performing in a multitude of settings, from churches to prisons, from barns to bars, from baseball stadiums to backyard bonfires. I sing and play guitar in the rock band, Thursday's Flight, but also find my home in the classic singer-songwriter, contemporary folk tradition. I've written many songs of love and loss, a few of whimsy and mirth, and even the occasional commentary on our social condition. My first solo album, Half A World Away, was released in April. 2017. My second studio album, should be released in the late fall of 2017. Stay tuned!
