I'm a native Texas singer/songwriter composing jazz based music in Austin Texas. I have played in Central Texas since 1986 from Kerrville to Sequin from Dallas to San Antonio. I did a Route 66 tour a couple of years back playing along the way from Austin to St Louis. I learned Texas is the best. The music posted here is original work, I've written many other tunes, but these are some of my favorites. I write the lyrics, the melodies and collaborate with other musicians on arrangements. Vocally, I have an eclectic style blending jazz, blues, spirituals, country, pop improvisationally. I also sing jazz standards, some blues, some light R&B, and soft Rock. My music has strong 30's - 60's influences. I love the sounds of Claire Martin and Patricia Barber and am an avid disciple of Ella Fitzgerald and Bonnie Raitt.
Over the years I've supported a number of causes...Wounded Warriors, Make a Wish Foundation, Pick with Austin, Lance Armstrong Foundation, Healing Heroes, Angel Heart Foundation and have played for many of their events. My all time favorite is a Central Texas group, "Pick with Austin" They rescue young people who suffer from severe depression and attempts at suicide by providing a musical outlet and teaching the kids to use the music to deal with their challenges.
A wise man I once met in Austin said "Music should go right through you, leave some of itself inside you, and take some of you with it when it leaves." Henry Threadgill from Zen Guitar
My hope is that when you listen to my music you will have that experience.
