Welcome to a New Year

With all the snow that has fallen (and continues to fall), February has arrived cloaked in Winter.

I wanted to take this moment to thank everyone for their condolences, prayers and thoughts of me and my loss. Dealing with losing Barbara will be an ongoing thing for me - but an important part of that is to keep my head in the game - to continue to perform & produce music.

It was always Barbara’s wish that I get back to playing my music. She met me while I was a working musician. Soon after, life had thrown a curve-ball at me - and out of necessity, I found myself working long hours at a regular job to survive (forgoing performing - but not playing). Fast-forward to 2011 … I was feeling that uncomfortable “what am I going to do?” moment as my eyes were adjusting to clearly seeing a bad economy and a worse recovery … and that’s when Barbara simply asked, “Have you forgotten how to sing?”

When there’s something you or I do that puts a smile on many faces - that is a gift that is only valuable when it’s shared.

As we are into and passing through 2014, I will continue to update the site and inform you about upcoming shows and events that I will be participating in. Thank you all sincerely for your support - and I look forward to seeing you at my performances.

A World Without You …

I am still in a state of shock - wandering around this empty house - and in my own mind … realizing how vast & empty those corridors can be without you …

The furry children are in their usual places – sleeping peacefully … their attitudes today were soft & comforting … it’s like they were saying, “You’re not alone – we still have each other.”

But those hugs & kisses are different … like all the love from other places. Love from a mom, or a puppy, or a sister or brother (or friend) are not the same as the love of your partner … that love can be the love that dreams are made of …

Unfortunately, my dreams were nothing but lies … in those dreams, we lived long & well – I took care of you and brushed your long gray hair … I saw myself old, and playing soft classical guitar music while you would fall asleep and snore in your favorite chair with cats in your lap …

But - you’re not here anymore … and I still am …

I stand in the living room – staring at the love seat. It was the last place where you sat downstairs. There’s a dent in the throw pillow from where your head rested … the quilted throw that kept you warm is still thrown against the back of the love seat and your slippers are still on the floor … it’s like you’re going to come back in the room at any moment from having gone to use the bathroom or get a drink …

But the background noises never come … no toilet flushes … no doors open or close … no lights turn on - or off …

I go to the top of the stairs, lay on the floor at the top landing – and stare at the ceiling … it was the last thing you saw before you began to fade away from me. I hope you saw me there. I never left your side – until (it seemed) I’d only be in the way …

Everyone is being so kind & thoughtful … each offer to help, each heartfelt condolence, each hug – breaks my heart over & over again – because of “why” … my eyes are sore, and sometimes I feel that there couldn’t possibly be any more tears left in them – and then the tears come … again …

I am so sad …

I am numb …

Things are getting done simply because I’m in a sort-of “mental auto-pilot mode” … sometimes, I feel as if I’ve disintegrated into a dust cloud and no one can see me anymore – but then I walk past a mirror, and although I barely recognize the stranger in the reflection with the bloodshot eyes – I know it’s me …

me …

it’s all that’s left of us …

me …

quietly sobbing as I deal with the deafening silence
                                                 of a world without you …


In memory of my love, my life, my woman … my biggest fan …

This was the second song I played at the 4th Patchogue Folk Festival 2013 (the “Live In The Lobby” portion of the show) … it’s titled “U-R-U (you are you)" and is a song I wrote in early 2013 … enjoy

This was the first performance (since I was the first performer) at The 4th Annual Patchogue Folk Festival 2013 on March 23rd … one of the requirements to playing the festival was that it has to be original music, so I decided to keep an upbeat theme to the music I chose to showcase that evening.
This song is called “Common"… enjoy …
