Mt First Love  

If you're like most people they assume this song is about my first romantic love, but it isn't, I wrote it for my mother. She is my first love. I happen to be one of the fortunate ones to have a very special relationship with my mom. A couple years ago she was diagnosed with a serious cancer. I wasn't ready to let her go and my way of dealing with my feelings was to write this song. On Mother's Day that year I shared this song with her and my family. When I looked up there wasn't a dry eye. Today we celebrate that she is a survivor and I am so grateful to have more time with her.

I hope you enjoy the song.

Universal Love's Chant Concert  

“The Universal Love’s Chant Concert.” 

I have a passion for peace and music. My vision is to show global unity by way chanting. Chants come from religions, for the most part around the world. There are 193 independent countries in our world. My dream is to gather one musical representative and their instrument, from every country forming a symphony.  We will learn one chant from each of the worlds top 10 religions and play together creating harmony and unity in our separate belief systems.  A global symphony sharing passion for peace, unity, love and freedom.

“May all beings be happy, may all beings know Peace!”

Kiski River  

The song Kiski River was inspired by a river in Apollo Pennsylvania. I had the pleasure of traveling across the US, touring and playing music with a friend. We stayed with her family in Apollo and I admired the beautiful river, which flows through the area. They told me when they were growing up, the river was completely orange from the steel mills dumping toxic waste into it. Historically the Kiski has been one of the most polluted rivers in the state. There was no life and they only went in to kill poison ivy. Today it is so clear that you can see the rocks, and YES, today there is good fishing. It moved me greatly. Her father saw my reaction and showed me where the people set up a watershed called the Roaring Run Watershed Association. This began a legacy of volunteer and government “partnerships” in raising funds for the preservation and maintenance of this precious resource. Currently they own and preserve 653 acres, which has nearly 15 miles of hiking/mountain bike trails. I spent my remaining time there writing this song on a rock while watching the river flow by.
