Hi music people-welcome to my page. I am a singer/songwriter/guitarist--from the Boston, Mass. area.I wrote all the songs uploaded here except the ones I've notated as cover songs.I like mostly music from the 1960s-70s; main influences are the Moody Blues(congratulations to them for their long overdue induction to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame April 14, 2018),the Byrds ,Gordon Lightfoot,Crosby Stills Nash and Young.
All the songs on this page are free to download. I've gotten several of my songs
ranked in the top 20, 50, and 100 in their Soundclick categories and a few number 1 ranked songs-both originals and covers. I appreciate the people out there who listen and like what I am saying in my music.I hope my songs are a blessing to you.I try to write from the heart and teach peace in my songs.

I used to play on the street and in the subway in Cambridge, Mass./Harvard Square(where Harvard University is)and in Boston--one time Noel "Paul" Stookey of folk legends Peter, Paul, and Mary stopped to listen to me sing in Harvard Square. I also once walked into a small restaurant in Harvard Square in 1993 and Robert Plant and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin were eating breakfast together-all by surprise to me and my friend Logan--Plant and Page were quite friendly.
