On another flight I had a two hour conversation with singer/songwriter Jim Croce. We bonded about both having graduated from Jesuit Universities and, of course, music. He liked some of my lyrics and asked me to send some songs to him and to his manager, also encouraging me to quit my job and pursue music full-time.
Sadly, I never got songs to Jim, as he was killed in a plane crash a month later. But I was impacted by his message and sincerity, and I did leave my sales and training career a year later to relocate to Colorado and perform my music in ski resort towns and the front range, which I did for a few years. I eventually pivoted back to my sales career in order to support my family, so I spent 30 years away from performing with my guitar. However my “retirement” in 2013 brought me back to music, and I am proud to say that I have done over 200 live performances since then. Please email me if you would like to get on my show distribution list – I would love to have you in the audience, and I do take requests!
Now I am excited to fulfill another life dream, the the release of my album, “It’s About Time”. I am very blessed for the collaborators that helped this come together and give great thanks to my talented cohort: Gold Record Winner David Snider who produced the album and performed on keyboard and stringed Instruments, Christian Teele of “E-Town” who did some amazing percussion work, Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductee Richie Furay of Buffalo Springfiled/SHF/Poco who sang and contributed some phenomenal suggestions for harmonies and background vocals. The process and the product have exceeded my wildest expectations. It is indeed, about time!
