My music is…
is driven by the world around us. I don’t write stories; i write memories, and current events. If i can live through the story, then someone else can connect with it.

I live in..
Long Island, NY. A suburb of NYC. The region is inundated with cover bands, and a population looking for music from when “life was better” – basically, the songs from when they were in high school. but the area is starving for genuine music and real life story tellers. there is a small scene emerging of people that “still believe”; and a very loud underground music scene is ripe for the next big music scene, ala Seattle of the 90’s

What defines “Success” to you?
being able to produce and perform music, and still be able to provide for myself and my family. I was put on this earth to create. not struggle to pay property taxes 🙂

What piece of music advice forever changed your way of thinking?: To always write from the heart. Write what you know.
When we finally wrote “the razorblade diaries”, the difference was me really opening myself up to the audience. That was both hard and scary; it made me quite vulnerable. Those songs mean something to me and to the people that listen. All the music is special to me from “the reality crush” to “say” which is still too difficult to perform live.

These are real stories not imagination and not make believe. These things hurt and that’s why people relate to them. I’m not the only one to feel these things and the fans aren’t either.
