Hey, how's it going? Thanks for stopping by. Through all my
years of writing songs I have always tried to speak of the
oneness and amazing gifts we should enjoy and struggle with
throughout our short journey here on Earth, and to celebrate
every moment.....even while you are screaming your dreams out
I have been very fortunate to have crossed paths with some
amazing musicians, recording engineers, and artists along the
way who created beautiful tracks of sound in my music and
graphic artistry for their covers, thank you all.
While raising my family, when I could afford to record, I would.
These 45's and CD are from the 80's and early 90's. My first LP
was recorded in the winter of 1973-1974 from songs I wrote
when I was 18-22 years old.
From acoustic instrumentals to rocked out dance tunes that
fueled many years in clubs & bars, these songs hold the sounds
of life, mine, folks I've met along the road, and maybe yours.
Same rock & roll BS story. After my strung out
manager couldn't get his shit together to
release this single in 1979, I finally got it done
It was a great session for me with the hard
hitting Bobby 'T' Torello on drums, Hal Selzer
on bass and Richard Robinson at the board.
A Side: 'Saturday Night'
B Side: 'Sexy'
This was a real colaboration. I was lucky to have found Gerald Block in a little studio in Sauk City, WI, just
before he moved back to New York City. Great engineer who really helped us all get comfortable for our
first studio outing. Big Al Byla, Tom Hennick and Jan Reek all helped put beautiful touches to the songs. I
was playing at campfires, open mics & coffee houses from Chicago to the West Coast. Wisconsin artist
George Cramer, one of my old professors and dear friend, made the cover art and John Craig, amazing
artist, provided the lettering. My friends at Inky Fingers silkscreen studios in New Lisbon, WI custom
printed each cover....no two are alike, and only 500 albums were pressed. Available in CD format through
CDBaby, iTunes etc.
With computers just coming around I decided to try and
compose a party beach song using this new technology and
with Richard Robinson's programing 'Do You Want To?' was
born. Hartford, CT WCCC DJ Angie helped introduce the
song as the 'on the beach' DJ.
A Side:'Do You Want To?'
B Side: 'I'm Serious'
Party time. From 1988 until this was released in
Spring of 1995 I was busy in the studio whenever I
could afford it. Some of these songs are from the
70's and 80's with a couple written in the early 90's.
Bobby 'T' Torello is again on drums and Moe Potts
added his amazing drumming talent to a couple
songs. The multi talented Scott Zito made great
tracks on keyboards, bass, vocals, and guitar...what a
talent. Terri Lane & Carolinda Simoes added superb
vocals along with Dui on bass. Both Richard
Robinson at TNA Studios and Vic Steffens at Horizon
Studios engineered and co-produced.
'Saturday Night' 'Steaks & Cold Beer' 'She's A
Crustacean' 'Piece Of The Action' 'For What'
'Sometimes I'm Up' 'Sweetn It Up' 'I'm Serious' 'Things
I've Been Missing' 'Don't Walk Away' 'Sexy' 'The Rain

Video just out from a session at Trod Nossel Studios in
Wallingford, CT. The footage was shot in 1986, just found,
and put together with fresh footage from NYC.
After a move back to the farm I sought out musicians
from the area and reconnected with past people I
worked with. A new neighbor down the road, Dave
Roberts, of Tiny Records, was instrumental in turning
me onto Logic and helping out with engineering and
production. Richard Robinson, now in Los Angeles,
helped bring in great players, and add his masterful
engineering skills to several songs. John Craig, who
has added his creative touch since my first record,
made the cover art. 'Shadows Casting Shadows' is a
mix of styles, each song encapsulating life's many
directions on the highway no matter who's hands are
on the wheel.
'Do You Remember?', 'Boulevard', 'Hold Me', 'Imagine
That', 'Jesse James', '[Livn' In Your] 2-D World',
'Sunday Morning', 'Too Bad', 'Choices', 'Mimbres',

Here we go again...election time...when we the people get to choose between
two ideologies instead of many, and when our two candidates tell us what
they think we want to hear and then, if elected, proceed to do whatever their
corporate donors tell them to do...land of the free? really?...corporations
don't even want you to know what's in your food....now that's really free, that
is, corporations get to do whatever they want, they are free, we are cogs in
