My Old Soul / Life’s a Love Song

When you’re a songwriter, life’s a love song.  I realized that when I was 13 years old and I’ve been living it ever since.  These albums prove that a love song can come in many packages and so can an age old soul.  Song to song, just like life, you never know what’s coming next.

I started these albums in Asheville, NC and finished them in my studio in Atlanta.  Also, a good portion was recorded after hours while building three different solar farms on the road in south Georgia.  The workers would go home and I would start recording, editing or mixing in my car, job trailer or in the parking lot or hotel room of the Hampton Inn.  (Hilton Honors points!! holla)

No matter what the song, “Life’s a Love Song”  is as heartfelt and emotional as anything I’ve ever done and it’s very musical with lots of guitar, sax and harmonica solos to keep things poppin’.

“My Old Soul”, my latest album is very upbeat and positive with lots of synths mixing with the guitar, sax, harmonica and orchestral embellishments.  The lyrical themes are of letting go of the past and moving forward with positive instincts.
