Sept. 2011    Ipse At Non Solus (prog)
This release marks the Start of releasing solo albums digitally. 
The beginning of a very prolific 9 years.
The title translates  to "Alone, But Not By Myself".
By this time I had built enough confidence in my ability to play all the instruments on my own, and my studio was complete. 

 

From 2004 - 2008
I was focused on the D'arcana project as the principle songwriter, Vocalist / Multi Instrumentalist with:
( Shelby Snow - Bass, Vox, James Camblin - Guitars,Vox )
During this period we performed live at some festivals and numerous regional gigs with varius drummers. We released 3 albums on CD and they are all available as downloads and CD.


June 2007     D'arcana - Premonitions (2CD) (Prog)
Dec. 2007     D'arcana - As Worlds They Rise And Fall (Prog)
July, 2005     D'arcana (Prog)

 

June 2000     A Gathering Of Days  (Singer Songwriter) - limited 100 copies now out of print

March 1998   E- Motive (out of print)
This was the last band I was with in NYC before relocating to California. We played a few shows, most notably opening for FISH from Marillion in NYC and Philidelphia.

Prior to 1998 I was writing for and performing with NYC Prog Trio"Lunar Sea" ( Jay Tausig- Vocals / Guitars, Ritchie Corbo-Bass,
Pat Connelly - Drums, Joe Nevolo - Drums ) . We did several regional shows (Once opening for The Magick Brothers in NYC) and did some recording sessions but the material was never released.
I do have all of the recordings in the archives but there are no immediate plans make them available.
Also during this time I was creating my first solo album "A Gathering Of Days".
The title track was released on E-Motive's album.
The material was performed at many early solo gigs (notably doing a 45 min. opening slot for the band GONG in nyc, and a 45 min set at The Vet's Hall in Ca. opening for a Beatles tribute act for an audience of about 700 ). Both shows recieved standing ovations. The cd was released as 100 CD's.

I no longer have the ADAT masters, but I do have a copy on CD, perhaps It will eventually see a re-master and re-release in the future.

"Undertow" with David Hentschel


"Undertow" is where it all begins.

It was the first thing I was ever hired to do for a label.
It was a huge success from a sales perspective,  and it introduced me to a

whole world of new fans.
It was during a time when Tribute albums were still a Big Deal.
Many of my musical heroes (John Wetton, Brand X, Annie Haslam. etc.) are featured on that album and it was a great honor to be included.
Still proud of it to this day.
It led to being included on "Eyewitness" and "Schizoid Dimensions'...
Thank You Mike Varney for taking a chance and making that early sunday morning phone.
