Music Mayhem

Though my work with music has largely been in writing lyrics, and penning bios for select indie artists, I do have one professional recording of my own, which you can listen to here…

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:

  • Michael has just announced a new CD is coming on Feb. 8, 2019! And, here’s a sneak peak at the cover, the design work for which was created by Brian Fitzpatrick.

In the meantime, Michael continues to tour in support of his 2018 release, Out From Under, the follow-up to 2016’s Willow Springs… a video for a standout song from which you can view here…

Here’s a  bio I wrote for Michael in connection with another album, entitled  Hit Me Back (released in 2012).

Rumbles of a new Brian Fitzpatrick album are growing louder, recently bolstered by the video for a new song and video…

In the meantime, 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!

You can also check out the bio posted here for Brian’s previous album, Worse for Wear.

In addition, the prior incarnation of featured a host of show recaps and additional material about Brian and his band.


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