As is the case for many people, the things that are most important to me have changed over time. With my music, for instance, I realized that the real joy in writing songs and performing comes from being able to really have an impact on peoples lives.
Sometimes its just for a moment, and sometimes that impact last. So now with many years of life experience under my belt, I look back and see that I’ve managed to create a large and varied library of music. I’ve been writing songs for as long as I can remember and started releasing my music in 1993 when it became easier for independent artists to release their own material.
After some modest success with my record "Stockholm Street" I relocated west to my new home near Los Angeles, CA (aka Circus Town). This nine song collection was born out of that. These are strong personal narratives about moving on, faith in sustaining your dreams and convictions and the importance of everlasting love."
