I was born July 25th, 1953 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Born into a very musical family,I started singing at a very early age. I sang a lot in school and at family functions.I started writing poetry very early which later developed into songwriting. At the age of 6,I won my first talent show held at school. I started learning to play my first musicalinstrument (The acoustic guitar) at the age of 15. I started learning the guitar when mymusic teacher asked me if I would learn a song to play in our school talent show.My dad, being a guitar player, taught me the basic chords and with a lot of practiceI learned a song to play at the show. This was the turning point that was to shape mylife forever. After performing Simon & Garfunkel’s "Scarborough Fair" I won firstplace and received my first standing ovation. Needless to say from that moment on I washooked. Shortly after that I became friends with Glenn Perry, someone with as much passion formusic as I had. Within the next three years, I was to start my own country music show,appear on several local television shows and start a career in song writing.At the age of 18 I entered the Military and served a total of 6 years. During my years in themilitary, I formed bands and performed all over North Carolina, Washington State, and all over Europe.Upon completion of my military service I moved back to the coastal area of North Carolinafor about 5 years. I formed several bands there and performed locally. In 1982 I moved toFlorida to perform professionally as part of a country music duo. In 1996 I moved toNashville, Tennessee to explore and learn the music industry. I recorded my firstalbum (Christmas In Wonderland) in July 1997.Also in 1997, I formed my own record label and publishing company. In 1998 I released myfirst album on my label (Platinum Notes Records).I had a country gospel television showon WHIG-TV in Rocky Mount, NC for a year and then returned to Nashville, Tennessee whereI lived for the next nine years until 20013. In 2013 I reconnected with a lost love that I met in1975 in Tacoma Washington, moved to Spokane Washington and married her. Today we livehappily in Columbia Falls, Montana.I continue to write my songs and to make albums.My dream is to spread my music to all the people of the world in hopes of touchingsomeone’s life with God’s most precious gift — Music.
