I love to write songs that take an unexpected angle: the untold story, the unsung hero. I like to challenge clichés, symbols, and assumptions by turning them on their head. I often employ paradox to take the listener beyond their own reality. Roots, folk, blues, and Americana influences render songs more familiar and accessible- creating a comfortable space, like a well-worn easy chair.

Thats the music I like to make.

The empathy project is another step in this journey. This 8-song EP takes me out of my own shoes and let me walk around form many different points of view- as pathways to understanding.

The Empathy Project is supported in part by funding from the Montgomery County government and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County. Their generous support makes all this possible, but I’m only partway there. I NEED YOUR HELP!

Welcome!

I am drawn to art that tells stories from unexpected points of view. Last year scientists began sharing the magnetic sounds (songs) of stars and planets. I started to experience the stars as energy singing across time and space- an interconnectedness of things. In the climate of political turmoil, cultural chaos, and unimagined divisiveness, the songs of the universe provided me new perspective.

What do I want to say with my music?

Look beyond appearances. Truth, however raw or uncomfortable, is beautiful. Face darkness- that is where hope takes root. Choose questions over answers. Leave room for wonder. There is music all around; close your eyes and see.
