No Way Out
I recorded 17 songs on this first CD, not knowing if I'd have the chance to do more. I think that writing songs is the best way for me to communicate what is important to me. My songs are about people-- a personal commentary on the impressions individuals have made on me. Many of the songs are about teenagers, who I see struggling to find an identity, and others who just want to enjoy life. I learned to play guitar so I could sing 'America' songs. My brothers and I had band rehearsals in the dining room, writing our own songs and singing in harmony. I like meeting people, learning new languages, and to travel light. My favorite thing is to sit around the dinner table with family and friends and talk. I could practically live on cookies and tea with honey, cheese...and some fish...bread and too much butter. It's great sharing this musical journey with my wife, Debbie (back to school after all these years), and our sons, Ryan (the Marine/ flutist), Andrew (the physicist/ pianist) and Griffin (the cellist/ theology/ philosophy reader learning Spanish) I hope you enjoy listening to my songs as much as I enjoy writing them. Feel free to sing along in the car or wherever and come up with some new harmonies.
