My First 15 Minutes of Fame...Came in 700 performances with the U.S. 7th Army Soldiers Chorus. We sang in concert halls and military bases all over Europe for 3 years. This was a defining musical moment in my life.
My Second 15 Minutes of Fame is Right Now as a solo artist...
I'm transitioning from live performances to Producing my own "Multiple Musical Personalities" in a variety of genres
(Christian, Jazz Vocals, Jesus Jazz/Piano, Contemporary Christian Cowboy, Country/Western, White Acoustic Gospel with a Touch of Soul, Soft Rock/Pop, Folk, Novelty, and Patriot Love Songs)
I had several performances during this past spring and summer. I've performed as a singer/songwriter in 100 concerts throughout the State of Kansas....and over 700 performances with the U.S. 7th Army Soldiers' Chorus in Europe during my military service.
My only performances are for The Good Samaritan Society in Dodge City, KS.
Now I'm exclusively a Song Writer looking for a Music Publisher who can connect my songs with profitable music opportunities.

Who do I sound like to you?
Artists who have shaped my music are
1. Andrae Crouch is still a major influence on my Gospel music.
2. Jack Hannah and Sons of the San Joaquin who continue to inspire me with their songs of The Great American Cowboy and the old West.
3. Antonio Carlos Jobim the great Brazilian composer. I love his light rhythmic touch on piano...with popular Bossa Nova and pulsating Sambas.
4. Jazz greats appearing at The Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach, California during the early '60s are an indelible ;;;;link to my Jazz piano and vocal expressions.
I play a Briarwood Acoustic/Electric Guitar and
3 Roland Interactive-Arranger Keyboards
We are living in perilous times.
JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY REAL ANSWER that I know for you and me and our world today.
I hope you'll....
