Singing since childhood, my "professional" music career began back in 1989 when I was asked to join a heavy metal band called Guilty Party as their lead singer. We played a local teen nightclub called "Secrets" for several months before going our separate ways after the club closed down.
After working with other bands on stage and behind the scenes, I took a few years off for college and the business world. I re-entered the musical realm in 2000 as lead singer of metal band Insult 2 Injury, (later known as Drämen).
In 2002, I released my first solo album called "History of Things to Come". Combining past demos from a group called The Smokin' Toads and new songs recorded for the album, this first solo effort was a lifelong dream come true.
After performing in 2003 with an extremely talented rock group known as Naked Wing, I lent my fledging producing talents to Troy Donoughue. Together, we recorded the first studio album for The Steel Scream Project called "Journey By Rail", released in 2004.
After a long absence, my follow-up solo album entitled "Innocence" was finally released on December 23, 2014. It is a compilation album that consists of highlights from "Journey By Rail" and "History of Things to Come", as well as unreleased tracks that I recorded after departing Steel Scream.
So, in some ways, you could say that "Innocence" has been 25 years in the making... and, even though the musical styles are all over the map, I hope every one of you can find something on there to crank up and enjoy!
