Influenced by the recent deaths of people like George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, I wrote a song called My Skin. I don't have all of the answers about racism, race inequality, and police violence, but I am here to listen and learn more. And as a songwriter, I wanted to express and share my thoughts at this moment in time. I recorded a version of the song at Lion Recording Studios in Cranston, RI. I am offering an mp3 download of the song at a "name your own" price. I will be giving 100% of the sales of this song to the group DARE (Direct Action for Rights and Equality). You can find out more about DARE by clicking HERE. And you can purchase the song by going to my Music and Videos link above, or by clicking HERE. Thank you!

Tom Waits Turns 70
On December 7th, 2019 we celebrate the art, the music and the beautiful heart that makes up the legendary Tom Waits.
"I am a seed that fell upon a hard ground," is the beginning piece of “Seeds on Hard Ground" a book written by Waits in the voices of those who were pushed to the margins of society. He has a strong passion for the homeless which is why this will be a benefit for The Amos House, a local shelter meeting the needs of our community.
Come hear your favorite songs by talented local musicians for an important cause.
$15 , $10 if you donate a gently used coat
