Thanks for stopping by. This website has been created mostly as an outlet for my need to create and share music. The songs on this site are basically demos - the results of me sitting down in short recording sessions, playing and singing from my heart. Perhaps at some future time, with some work, these creations might live up to their full potential. But for now, they simply represent an outward expression of some of my inward thoughts and feelings, that are finding a medium for escape.
I wrote (with some obvious notable exceptions where certain liberties were taken with unwitting collaborators - my special thanks, for example, to Billy Joel for his contribution to LDS Piano Man) and performed all of the songs you will find here. I hope that, to some degree, these songs may help you as the listener to experience and discover some feelings within you that are similar to those feelings I had as the pieces were conceived and brought to completion; the same feelings that I experience each time that I perform them, or even hear them myself. So feel free to browse, listen, download, share with others and/or provide feedback directly to me. Sit back and stay a while - you are always welcome here.
Though this list may change from time to time, here are what I currently consider to be some of my favorites:
With some of my songs I have included a youtube video or a pdf file with some sheet music that I have created over the years. Though they are far from perfect, I hope they may also help to further convey the core message of each song. I hope to be able to supplement the songs with more videos and sheet music in the future - again perhaps more for my creative outlet than anything else.
Feel free to CONTACT me if you feel the desire. I love opportunities to share these songs.
