New Album Release "The Longing" - October 3, 2012

October 3rd, 2012, I just received my first printing of "The Longing" and am very pleased with the project outcome. Discmakers did a great job replicating it and printing the EcoPack jackets. Sean Redding of Recording Farm did a very nice job mastering my arrangements and all in all it pleases me greatly to be able to offer you this new album of original compositions. There are ten new tunes on it as well as two remastered  pieces - "Sacrifice Of Love" and "Spanish Circles"  from the previously released albums "Lovestream" and "Dream Waters".  The new tunes have a distinct Old World flavor to them such as "Thoughts Of You", "Memory Meadow", "Gypsy Shuffle", and "Without You." They take on various moods and carry you up and down an invariable sonic rollercoaster.  It should be for sale at CD Baby within the next week. Check it out!

Music Man Photography - February 7, 2012

Recently, I had the good fortune of meeting a wonderful photographer by the name of Carl Kravats in Temecula, CA. Not only is he a great photographer but an artist in his own right. It was a pleasure doing business with him and you may notice his work on my Home page as well as on my Gallery page. His use of tone ,light and shadow is truly amazing. Those interested in his work can go to my Links page to further explore his images.
