Working on a few last minute mix changes for my new CD called "Turning Stones". Kristen Anastasia has been working with me on the CD graphics and layout. All the photos were done for the "Turning Stones" CD cover and promo pics by an exceptional photographer named Magda Rod. Two new videos are in the can for the songs "Fruits Of Life" & "Fine Line" and the songs should be available soon for downloading via all major internet outlets like iTunes, Rhapsody & Amazon.
I have been writing & recording new songs lately. My good friend, guitar player, & engineer wiz Greg Krueger and I have been laying down the basic tracks for the songs I have written over the last few years. This is always my favorite time in the record making process when I begin to hear all my creative ideas come to life. It's funny how it all works because recording the songs already written seems to inspire more new songs along the way. I already have a couple of new favorites. We are just taking…Read more

I was selected as one of three Emerging Artists by Hennessy for September in Rolling Stone Magazine. Please take a moment and go to this adddress http://www.rollingstoneextras.com/hennessy/voting.php and vote for "A Walk In The Park" DAILY. It takes 2 clicks and less than 15 seconds but will help so much. Every vote counts but you can only vote once a day. Please tell all your friends and family too.....

I was in Louisville last week for the Triple A NonComm Convention for radio DJ's. I made a bunch of new friends and heard some incredible music. I even went to Churchhill downs and picked the winner for the final race of the day. Unfortunately I only bet $2 so my huge pay out was $5 but it felt great to win no matter what. Besides I had a Mint Julip and even got to keep the Kentucky Derby commemorative glass. What a deal. I look forward to seeing all of the dj's I met out on the road when I visit their…Read more
