Past Albums

The latest album releasing in December 2016 "My Flying Friend" is a album for all ages with pleasurable easy listening, blending spinning an eclectic mix of folksy-rock and tinges of bluegrass and heartfelt Americana. Be sure to check out "My Flying Friend"  available for download and hard copy purchase.  Each song provides elements to everyday experiences makes this album one that will age well.

His past album More Money quote from Revue Magazine November 2008 -Michael Loffelman

"Classify this album under "meaty, invigorating jazz infused rock." More Money features some great interaction among Grand Rapids' best local talent on saxophones, bass and percussion in particular.  Guitar, flute and vocals flesh out the already strong performances. 

Tracks are hook and groove laden from beginning to end.  Saxophones are often the driving force, and whether it's an extended solo  or simple flourish they remain prominent throughout.

Sax is smooth on the opener "Feeling Numb", which has enough funky pep to herald the following "More Money", where the solos take off.

Shifting with grungy, heavy push on "Dream Girl", (Track 3) which is a swanky tune about a movie starlet. "Let me in", is a soft ballad and a welcome breather it's the one song you can slow dance to.

The album finishes strong with the deep grooves of the rowdy "Come to Daddy", where playful songs from previous tracks turn naughty.   The whole album is pretty sexy overall -
