A Sacramento native, I've traveled and lived in many places while in the military. Much of my style and sound has a retro feel, based on the music I heard growing up in the 70's and 80's. I try to incorporate backing vocals and harmonies not heard in contemporary pop music genre to provide warmth. All of my songs begin as Piano pieces, often sitting for months and reworked with other instruments to develop the sound. I attempt to experiment with variations of genres, and my songs rarely sound alike, by design. Several of my songs have been essentially written ready to record for 10+ years, but only recently have I felt the urge to finish and record them.
