For years, I worked behind the scenes for a variety of major recording artists in the fields of Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Pop, Soul and Country. I wrote my compositions and arrangements out of the public eye. With a deadline looming, I would often have to write through the night to make the downbeat of a recording session set for 10 o’clock the following morning. Although bleary-eyed, the experience was well worth it to hear what I wrote only hours earlier performed by the best musicians on the planet: the studio musicians of L.A., New York and London. If you are familiar with my name it’s only because you came across it in album credits or in very small print on a record label (I’m talking vinyl here).

Thank you for your interest in the history and current activities of Lute Records and for your interest in my artistic endeavors.  It is a privilege and a joy making music and having you listen to it!

As a follow-up to my first album, “Pure Imagination,” I offer you “Tuff Traxx,” a collection of synth-based Contemporary Dance Music, great for parties, playlists or simply getting your groove on!  You can preview “Tuff Traxx” HERE.
