A Video Game Trailer!
Mar 16 2019

I had the opportunity to provide a voice over for my first video game trailer this past week. I've been a gamer since the early 1980s, when the Atari 2600 pretty much took over my life. While I don't have time to play as much as I used to, I still hop on my XBox One when I can so I can decompress   ....Read full post

Two Years!
Mar 10 2019

It was two years ago today that I quit my job, left my IT career, and became a full-time musician and voice over actor.

Livecasts!
Feb 16 2019

I started doing weekly livecasts on Facebook, for both music and voice overs. I'm alternating one each week. For music, I'm simply providing updates on upcoming shows, then playing some music. For voice overs, I've been narrating sections of audio books I've recorded.

Here's the latest f   ....Read full post

Here's my schedule for the first month of the year! Note the break the second weekend of the month...I'll be in Florida on a rare vacation, so things will be quiet for several days. But the rest of the month is pretty jam packed, including a few retirement home shows.

Baby, It's Changing Outside
Dec 17 2018

That song.....that silly, classic song, 'Baby, It's Cold Outside', which was written by Frank Loesser in 1944, has been making headlines the past couple weeks. While it's been recorded by many artists over the decades, the most revered is Dean Martin's take in 1959. It's a classic, and while it's   ....Read full post

Connections And Holidays
Nov 19 2018

As we head into Thanksgiving and, I suppose, the official start of the Christmas season (though I know plenty of folks who have had their trees set up since Halloween), I'm very thankful once again that I have the opportunity to do work that I love and share it with others. Whether it's restoring a   ....Read full post

Getting The Family Involved
Nov 11 2018

I played a couple of shows this past weekend at familiar venues, ones that I've been playing for a few years. They're like comfort zones in a way, where you know what kind of music the respective crowds like, yet can also feel free to experiment a bit. I tried out some new tunes I've learned from   ....Read full post

New Songs, An Idea, & A Photo
Nov 07 2018

This past weekend, I played a couple shows at familiar venues. Friday was Caribbean Jerks in Powell, a neat restaurant offering a wide variety of food, and a small stage for us solo musicians to perform on. I hadn't been there for nearly a year. I'd been scheduled last March on my sister's birthd   ....Read full post

Nov 01 2018

Even though this info is available on FaceBook and elsewhere on this site, I've had folks asking for more heads-up on where I'll be, so they can make appropriate plans (I assume, to come out and see me). This Thanksgiving is one where my wife Tamara and I will be out of town, visiting her family, s   ....Read full post
