Though not a huge fan of a capella music, to be honest (I would SO love for a piano and/or strings track to somehow be added), I didn’t have access to musicians for accompaniment on the project, so used what I had (my voice).  In any case, I wrote the lyrics and music at the request of an adopted child and (unrelated) adoptive parent, respectively.


On to the pros!  The following are bios I’ve been privileged to write for a few of my favorite musicians:

With rumbles of a new Brian Fitzpatrick album (to be released in 2018) growing louder, its predecessor (released in 2015), remains available both digitally on and iTunes, and in hard copy form via CD Baby, and various other music sellers.  As with all of his prior releases since 2002, I had the privilege of writing the one sheet/album description to accompany the disc.  And, if by chance you’ve still not heard it, it’s a recording you don’t want to miss!

I was asked to write this bio for the largest American fan site of the band.  It was later added to the primary U.K. site as well.
