Album “It’s a Jersey Thing” Released Online

It’s been a long time coming! I felt strongly like there was some unfinished business — that these songs, recorded over the course of 25+ years, needed to be on an album. When you buy this album on Bandcamp, you get to download the tracks or stream them in the Bandcamp mobile app. You also make a statement that independently-created music has value, especially when you socially share the album here!

You can listen to the tracks below and decide about purchasing this Jersey-riffic collection. All purchases (compact disc or download/streaming) comes with a downloadable PDF booklet containing lyrics and stories behind the songs. The CD purchase also comes with the download and streaming access.

“It’s a Jersey Thing” is also on all streaming services, like Apple Music and Spotify.

And, just for kicks, here’s “You Can’t Get There from Here in Jersey” – the official video on YouTube.

New lyric video: Cubicle

Back in 1995 I was 3 years into my post-college life, which meant working in cubicles – as a temp and then as a full-timer. I had graduated into a recession and considered myself lucky to be employed. I also heard the whispers of the downsizing rumors, which fueled my sense of “gallows humor.” All this experience (and a dash of imagination) made its way into my song “Cubicle.”

This is the original recording from 1996, set to a new lyric video created in July 2022.

Out now – new single and video: “This Man’s Eyes”

I wrote this song for my wife Amy back in ’99 when we were dating. Then I sang it at our wedding. It’s an upbeat, feel-good rock’n’roll love song. Over the years I made some demo recordings of it. But now, recording technology has come so much further, has have my multi-instrumental skills. So it seemed the right time to try again and record what I’ve heard in my head all these years. And I’m delighted with the result. I hope you will be as well!

Here’s the YouTube video:

The single is on my Bandcamp, page (embedded below), Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and wherever you listen to streaming music.

As with all my new music, I offer it to my mailing list before it’s launched to the general public. If you want to get my next single before it’s released, sign up below.
