Hello and Welcome to my page.
I love all types of music....and my music evolves around love, the greatest of all emotions, such a precious thing..
I am a performing singer / songwriter / musician of many styles and genres.
I have written and composed songs in Blues, Country, Classical, Rock N Roll, Latin (Flamenco), Christian contemporary, Love Songs and Ballads and my favorite music is Christmas music. I love collaborating with other artists.
I also love working with children and teaching them about music, different instruments and diffentent musical genres. They are so much fun to be with and so enthusiastic, it is one of favorite activities.
You can see some of these events on my blog page.
Words can not express my thanks to all of my wonderful friends who have done collaborations with me, below are listed some of Soundclicks finest artists. You will surely enjoy their beautiful music.

My first instrument was a harmonica, and I later learned to play the guitar, I would play the chords while I played the lead on the harmonica.....My mom often sent me downstairs to practice....I think I got on her nerves....I joined a church choir and took piano lessons to learn to read music better. I then joined a Christian Contemporary Group call "Messiah's Messengers", I had a great time and learned so much...I owe much of what I know to those who were graceful enough to teach me and share some of their gifts...Thanks Barb R., Nancy A. and Rick W.
Do You Play Live? Yes, I play live occasionally,
I live in Williamsport PA, I have played in schools, family reunions, birthdays, weddings, parties, Christmas parties & parades. I have played around the world, in Wales, Scotland, England and Germany, I love to entertain and share my music, I love to jam and it is especially cool when people sing along with songs that they know or clap along with the songs....
Any special moments? Yes they all are...Playing in front of the Hotel Berlin, Berlin, Germany before a live audience of one, for my dear freind Caroline who provided encouragement for me, the next thing you know we had a crowd....
...I once played "Anchors Away" on harmonica at the request of a US Navy Admiral during a refueling operation before 300 sailors, talk about captive audiences...Playing for my son and daughters weddings. Sitting along the shores of Loch Loman in Scotland and playing "Scotland the Brave" and "You Take The High Road" and many more of my favorite folk songs. Sitting in castles and playing the guitar as the sounds of music echo along the walls of the tower.
And the special moments with my mother as we played songs on harmonica in front a nice fire in the back yard on warm summer eve....
Elvis Presley was my first influence... at 4 years old I stood on the porch and sang "Hound Dog" to an invisible audience, also Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves, Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton, Reba, BB King, The Beatles, Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, CCR, 3 Dog Night, Led Zep, Grand Funk Railroad, Eric Clapton & my of course mom who bought me my first harmonica, she plays pretty good too, we used to play duets....
