In the Poison Grove
Thank all of you for reading this page and choosing to share in my latest musical expression. I have played guitar and written songs since the age of 12, and engaging in the creative process through the years has given me great joy and a deep insight into my own mind and into the nature of the human experience. Through the years I have played and recorded with several bands in the N.Y. metropolitan area, most notably 'Pariah' ( aka as 'The Eyes' for several years). Since moving to Florida in 1991, I have played locally in the south Florida area with a band I formed called 'Changes', which featured John Bradicich on drums and Rob Sunkel on bass guitar ( check out the Changes CD, also for sale on cdbaby!). I have also had the pleasure of recording with former Pariah alumni Bill and Rob Sunkel on their 'Desperate Measures' CD's. For the past 2 years, I have been busy writing many new songs which inevitably led to my current release. 'In the Poison Grove' features a collection of 12 new original songs. The styles vary from rock, to pop, to acoustic, to ballad; from heavy to light, and from intense to just plain fun! I recorded all of these songs at my home studio this time around and this project has truly been a labor of love. I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I have enjoyed bringing them to life........
