Hello everybody and welcome to my studio. Thanks for taking the time to listen to some of the songs I’ve posted. I hope you enjoy them as much as I loved singing them.
A Little Bit About Me
I’m originally from the western Pennsylvania coal mining area east of Pittsburgh. My father was a coal miner for most of his life, my mom was a housewife who loved to sing and sometimes “perform” when she had a few drinks. I’m sure her singing throughout my childhood was the key to my love of music. Through grade school and high school I was involved in plays, chorus and church choirs and performed solo on numerous occasions.In college, I joined the glee club and sang on a regular basis with the main group and a sub group.But after college I pretty much gave up singing in favor of pursuing my career in engineering and IT. I really needed to focus on making money and that seemed to be the best path although probably not as satisfying as a musical career. I moved to the Cleveland area around 1966 and met and married my beautiful wife Linda while working for Goodyear Tire and Rubber, my first job out of college. We have been married for over 34 years and have two beautiful children who are now grown and have their own careers ahead of them.I have now retired and have reignited my passion for music through this site and the now defunct site, SIMS. I have met a number of really special friends, both here and on SIMS, who have been very encouraging even when some of the songs I posted were pretty bad.
Thanks Sing Snap
I believe this site is one of the good things that the internet has provided. What a tremendous opportunity to meet new friends who share a common passion for music. It’s been a great outlet for me and a wonderful way to get back to singing. I have not only met some really great singers but have also been introduced to some great music that I doubt I would have ever heard had I not heard it from one of my favorites on this site. I thank you all for your wonderful and supportive comments. I try to get back to those who have commented on my songs but sometimes it takes a bit longer than I would like. Please know however that I really appreciate all of your comments. I wish all of you the very best and hope we can continue to share our love of music and singing.
All the best.
