Having played and written tunes for years, I found my comfort zone as a co singer, occasionally fronting and playing lead and rhythm guitar. So, this up close and personal approach is a unique challenge, especially without a band to help make a fort from which to operate. This foray into the venerated "singer songwriter" genre is only possible though the relentless support of my wife and lyricist, Penny Cork, who helps bring my need to make music something more, something unique, something to say. These songs are hers as much as mine and show our view of life and how it feels.
