Hello & Welcome!

As it says above, I'm a lyricist and a jazz singer. You can read about my creative journey so far, in my bio. As a recording artist, I have put out a dozen albums of original music since the year 2000; if you'd like to know more about them and hear some tracks, go to the Albums. The most recent is at the top.

I Live Here Now

I Live Here Now

On March 4th (the day of the year that exhorts you to do something), I moved to Rochester, NY. I rented an apartment without having seen it, or having spent any time in Rochester since Shelly Berg and I did a gig here many years ago. “Long story short,” it was an impulse.  I love it here. When I […]
