The Familiar Road coming soon and other news

My next release hails from my roots in southeastern Wisconsin. ‘The Familiar Road” was recorded in 1998 in New Berlin, Wisconsin by my friend and guitarist Sean Gill. The vocals are raw and unedited, capturing the emotional nuances of my life experiences from ages 18-24 before I moved to NorCal to take a job as a music therapist. Stay tuned for this 7-song EP due to drop at the end of this month. The lyrics all of my songs are all posted here on my website. The 7 songs on this album evoke tones of anger, confusion, passion, and depth regarding love sought and lost, existential questions and the ponderings of the meaning of my young adult life. Estimated release date: April 12, 2024. Please follow me on Spotify or whatever platform you listen to music on to be notified of the drop and give it a listen. The vocals are raw, unedited and confessional. Sean did a great job recording and adding guitar and bass. Enjoy!
