Tributes to my key musical inspirations

NEWS FLASH!!! Singer-Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Unveils One-Man-Band ROCK Record on the INTIMATE AUDIO label:

Yep! It finally exists. After four years of slow boiling... Unbelievable! Please check out my brand-new “full band” album of original compositions, MANNERISMS MAGNIFIED (now available through, iTunes and AMAZON.COM), featuring me performing all the instruments (voices, guitar, bass, real acoustic drums, piano, accordion, and mandolin). I also produced, arranged, engineered, and did all the artwork/illustrations—intimate audio AND visual, lol! (Details can be seen in my YouTube: ALBUM PREVIEW/documentary.) I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Meanwhile, on this page you'll find in-depth tributes to some of my key musical inspirations (living, or no longer with us)—Brian Wilson [features a unique interview I did (with Brian Wilson and veteran studio bassist Carol Kaye) on the subject of the Beach Boys' landmark album, Pet Sounds, and a diverse collection of Brian Wilson links], Jeff Buckley [tribute to the late, great guitarist / vocalist / songwriter. Includes a Buckley-style guitar chord lesson, info about his guitars (Les Paul, Rickenbacker, etc.), an intimate acoustic "covers" CD inspired by and dedicated to Jeff (w/tribute version of "Hallelujah"), and more], Elliott Smith (written immediately after his passing—and includes a live tribute performance by myself, where I "lose it" in the middle.... I was totally bummin'), Shawn Lane (which includes a REAL AUDIO link to an UNBELIEVABLE live performance), and more.
