What can I say? I love to sing and play music! I’m a New York City-born musician. I love what I do and am happy and thankful that I’m able to do it as long as I have! Music not only surrounded me, but it was...and life-long passion. As a kid, I tagged along with my parents to concerts, recording sessions and live gigs for a multitude of classic jazz musicians. Meeting great jazz musicians like Earl Hines, Eubie Blake, Herbie Hancock, Joe Osborn & others definitely shaped what I listened to and my thinking as a musician. Early on I was amazed at the talents of Elvis Presley, Ricky Nelson and from the first time I saw and heard the Beatles perform was captivated. Seeing Paul McCartney playing electric bass I said “That’s what I want to do!” It set the foundation for me as a musician and performer. I knew music was forever woven into me and felt compelled me to share with anyone who would listen. My music is available on Apple Music, Spotify, Youtube etc.for you to stream anytime!
