Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy your visit. I have designed this site to share my music with people who enjoy finding and listening to music by new artists and singer/songwriters. This site is also intended to provide a vehicle in which industry professionals can find new music that is available for licensing, publishing, and artist consideration.
It is important to have some background on me and my musical development. I began singing at the age of 6 in grade school with the choir. When I reached the age of 12, I began learning to play acoustic guitar, taking lessons for a year or two. In high school, I continued with choir, engaged in vocal ensembles, committed to playing guitar, and formed my first cover band. I moved on to college where I continued my vocal and guitar development and graduated with a degree in marketing and a minor in music.
Having graduated, I married, found employment, and still pursued my music career. I established myself in the local music scene as a successful acoustic/vocalist solo act for the next five years. Eventually, my solo work blossomed into the formation of my second cover band. We made our mark in the local music scene and had success for the next 5 years. It is important to note that, during this time, I began to introduce songs to our repertoire that I had written over the preceding years. Soon after that, I found it best to move on and began to seriously apply myself to the art of songwriting. A few years later, I formed another band, Saldo Kreek. Our focus was to write and perform original songs exclusively. We released two CDs, “Panning for Gold” and “Love Street”, both with moderate success. Although short-lived, Saldo Kreek became the springboard to where I find myself today. My catalog consists of nearly 100 songs that I have written over the last two decades. Many of those songs can be found here on this site.
I invite you to navigate the site and listen to the songs I have written.
