I setup my old Sony HD video camera, which promptly ran out of battery about 5 songs into the set. From that footage, I decided I would publish these two songs. Enjoy! Oh.. and consider subscribing to my YouTube channel. Thanks. Lonely Mile Man © 2010 I wrote the chorus back in 2008 driving back […]
I wrote this song soon after my home in Arizona was destroyed in a Monsoon storm. The song came about when friend and local businessman, Doug Bruhnke, upon seeing me on the news talking about losing everything joked, “All the press you ever wanted.” I replied and said, “All the press I NEVER wanted!” That […]
I wrote this last year (2017). The song is ultimately about unrequited love – or unrequited desire. Although, more accurately, it may be a reflection of gratitude that any lover would give me time and attention… certainly, not expected. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It started with lyrics – I wrote the lines: “I don’t expect yes for an […]
Heading things off at the pass, as this question has already come up… No, there is no Marie. But the named worked well with the song. Actually, there is a Marie at my client and she seems to like the song. It’s certainly not the first song to use her name. But there was no specific […]

Video of a song I wrote for my friend Mike and his new bride, Christine.
A song I wrote back in 2007 as my first marriage headed toward divorce. It reflects the lack of control I felt at the time. While sad, it is still one of my favorites.
My oldest son got married in Michigan a week ago. He asked that my youngest and I perform a few songs at the wedding. We picked out our songs but several people asked if I would be writing a song for the wedding. I initially balked at the idea. This is their day! Their moment in […]
