    Through The Door

    What's on the other side? The first album is more compact and kinda snarky. The second album is darker and more expansive. And, then there's the third album, a dirty pane of blues rock glass that looks inward.

    One Foot Out The Door,
    released: 10/30/15.

    NEW! Sink Or Swim 4 Video.

    "My horizon is always bathed in the sun. I'm shadow boxing, 'cause I know what you've done." ...the first lines of the song, "Boundaries," the fiery new video from Sink Or Swim 4. This song is kind of a blues rock epic, the kind which just begged for some extravagent imagery to bring it to life. I gave a little bit of artistic license to the art department and boy was that offer was taken up with some gusto! Check it out (if you dare). Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha....

    Sink Or Swim 4 Now Available.

    ...the final chapter in the Sink Or Swim Collection... This is the close of one of the most rewarding artistic cycles of my life. Yes, it was very ambitious to release this much music and I agonized over that very thought. Believe me, there was a lot more  that I did not release. I don't spend a lot of time listening to what I've created, but I checked back with these albums and I think they all stand up. I take all parts of songwriting very seriously. Lyrically..., I think that I've hit on some cool concepts that I wanted to explore. The more life I experience, the more stories I seem to be able to cull. And... the journey continues..., so... enjoy.

    Hitting The Wall Really Hard.

    "Hitting The Wall" and assorted head trauma. A raucous, rollicking moment in a guitar-driven journey. Call it a Les Paul debauchery. This is also quite the outlier in my song catalog. I don't really have a lot of songs that sound like this...but I like it. Think it's cool. AND: this is the song that blew my monitors out on when I was mixing it...which is always worth it. Ha. Rock and roll baby..

    AND: More Rock Guitar Blues...

    Sink Or Swim 3..., it's here! The new year brings us the third installment in the Sink Or Swim Collection. This might be my favorite. In a day and age, when the album concept is so passe... I like the flow of this album... from top to bottom. The multiple takes on the blues, without any song actually being in a blues structure... that's what this album is. A good example of this is the first video, "Graced By You".

    NEXT. NOW. Sink Or Swim 2.

    We've reached part 2 (of 4)..., Sink Or Swim 2 offers new pieces to the puzzle... some rock, some soul, some blues, ...and all that's in between... I'm also proud to unveil the first video for this part of the collection..., "It's Not My Love." It has been quite an adventure to get to this point. Dodging hurricanes. Computer problems. Lotsa life challenges. But I'm back and ready to rock. Enjoy.

    A Rose By Any Other Name?

    Is this love or fantasy...or just some sleazy blues rock? This is the second music video from SINK OR SWIM 1. Blues rock + a bit of mystery, ...perhaps?

    New album, new video.

    Sink Or Swim, ... is the brand new collection of guitar riddled blues rock music. These albums have been in the works for the last 18 months. So many songs written, over a hundred... and this is the cream of the crop. The first of four parts opens with a track, "Who's The Fool" ...which is also the first video. It's also a great mission statement for what's to come...

    A Q U I F E R .

    This is a unique CD for me... in that, this one album is an all rock guitar instrumental release. This really gives me a chance to stretch out on the guitar and create musical textures that wouldn't be possible in a normal vocal album. The guitar beckons melodies to come to the fore, the kind that would be very difficult to sing. This allows new song structures to happen that wouldn't have occured otherwise. As someone who loves to play guitar..., I never know what's going to happen. Expression came to the surface and the guitar allowed me to share these feelings with you. This album was a joyful, emotional experience to create. I hope you enjoy.

    Bluesy, intimate & soulFULL rock.

    A haunting melody twined between... an intense, midnight-desperate guitar and a deeply impassioned vocal. Another music video from the guitar-driven and blues oriented, middle CD of the Through The Door series, "One Foot Out The Door".

    Some dirty rock and roll.

    All along I've known your dirty little secret. You're camouflaged like a soldier in the night... This was one of those songs that was so easy to write ...that it was a blur. That's when I know that it's right. That's when the magic happens. I'll just say that I'm pretty sure I spent more time working on the music video than the song itself. We spent a whole lotta days shooting, editing, etc. One afternoon we were shooting some of the story scenes in downtown St. Pete and at one point I turned around and there were two guys shooting video of us... shooting video. I think... at that point I had the pinata aimed at a clock on a street corner. One of those shots we didn't end up using. Ha. Too funny.

    Ironically, although this was one of the last songs written for the last CD in the Through The Door series, this is NOT the last video we will be releasing for the series. We have FIVE more to go. It is however, the one we are releasing NOW. Enjoy.

    The Foot Speaks Again....

    Through The Door series: a new addition. We travelled back one album for the new video, "One Foot Out The Door", to claim some unfinished business. So here it is for your perusal. Dig.

    This is definitely one of my favorite songs (that I've ever written) and boy does it have a sleazy groove.

    A Video From The Outside.

    Ethereal blues rock song: "Outside Looking In" is the second music video from The Window. The bulk of this video was shot outside a music store of all things. Sam Ashe Music Store (Clearwater, FL) is situated next to a beautiful set of working roman fountains. I've wandered this garden many times comtemplating purchases. It's a great place to make up your mind... and it's a truly beautiful place in an of itself. Enjoy the video and some pretty trippy green screen effects (which kinda went outside the norm).
