Call it "relaxed-fit" Americana. It's my personal blend of the music I heard in the house or on the radio growing up in Baltimore --- rock 'n' roll, rockabilly, country, swing, folk, pop, Tin Pan Alley, showtunes, jazz, even comedy.
Mostly, I write old-fashioned, romantic love songs. Some of the songs are about other stuff. Everyday things, the silly, the sad, whatever goes into making us human. But mostly it's love: The joy of finding it, the pain of losing it, the thrill of a new flame, the contentment of a lasting romance.
About the songs
I hope the happy, funny ones will get you to laugh. Maybe you'll cry a little bit at the sad ones.
Mostly, I hope the songs make your day a little more beautiful. And that you'll dance with someone you love.
