I Write and Sing Love Songs
I believe that for music to be considered good music, it should elicit an emotional or physical response. It should make you smile or make you cry, make you tap your toe, think about someone you love or someone you miss. On my website, I hope you find some good music.
With a voice that has been described as “rich” and “expressive”.

Fly Me to the Moon
Can you imagine what it might have been like to live in the Big Band days? Perhaps sitting at a fancy dinner and everyone is all dressed up? Sinatra is on stage, not more than 10 feet in front of you, because you’re sitting in the good seats. He’s singing, “Fly Me to the Moon.” The orchestra is playing and people are starting to get up and move to the dance floor. What a magical time. These guys could sing, really sing. And, they sang wonderful love songs: “Fly Me to the Moon,” “You Make Me Feel So Young,” Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime,” “That’s A'more,” “When I Fall In Love,” and they were backed by amazing jazz bands. What a great sound. A sound that makes me want to just step back in time. Close your eyes and listen. Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole.
They were all there. With a little imagination, you could be there too.
Daddy's Little Girl
Having raised girls, I wanted to write a song about that special daddy-daughter relationship and capture some of the memories I have of them when they were little. The song is orchestrated as a light waltz to serve as a father-daughter dance song at a wedding. If you've got a soft spot in your heart, you may want to keep a box of tissues close by. I hope you like it.
Is there anything better than being in love? " Considered a Dean Martin best song, that's Amore" (That's' Love) was a big hit and signature song for Dean Martin in 1954. "When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore." How do you know if you're in love? "When you walk down the street with a cloud at your feet, you're in love.
I THINK HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU
It's about the little things that remind us how much we love someone and loving that special person a little more every day.
Everybody Loves Somebody
Is there any song that reminds us more of Dean Martin than "Everybody Loves Somebody (Sometime)"? Some people might suggest the song, "That's Amore." But, for me "Everybody Loves Somebody" was Dean Martin. A "crooner" is often defined as someone, usually a man, who sings in a sentimental style with a soft, low voice. For me, and many others, "Dino" was the definition. I hope you enjoy my version of Dean Martin's "Everybody Loves Somebody."
Tomorrow's Not Enough
My parents were married almost 51 years when my dad passed away. When I wrote this song in 2018, my dad had been gone 12 years. And, even after all that time, when my mother would speak of him, she'd cry. My parents were a wonderful example of two people that loved each other very much. If she could love him another day, she would. "Tomorrow's Not Enough." When I started writing songs again after many many years, this was the first song I wrote.
