Welcome to my world of MUSIC!! Explore my site to be a part of my ongoing journey of songwriting, playing & singing. I am so blessed by God to have this gift of music. A special thanks to the talented co-writers I am fortunate to call my friends - thank you for creating with me. For all those that have supported me from the beginning... Thank You. I hope to see you at one of my live shows!

NSAI 2020 Member Awards: "BEEN" Wins the Evaluator Song of the Year Award!!! 

Our song, "BEEN" was the winner of the first ever NSAI Member Awards in the Evaluator Song of the Year category. So honored to have written this song with co-writer friends Jayne Sachs & Bobby Evans. This award is so special because it was chosen by NSAI staff from the many songs Recommended and Chosen for the Publisher Luncheon throughout the year and then voted on by NSAI members. I was blessed to have 2 songs nominated in this category.. the other song was "Can't Put Into Words" co-written with friends Kelly McKay & Brad McKinney. "BEEN" won, but what an incredible honor to have 2 songs nominated and one actually winning. 

THANK YOU to the NSAI staff and all the NSAI Members that voted for our song, "BEEN". Now it just needs to find a home with an artist to take it to the charts!!  

1 of 16 Songwriters Chosen for Barbara Cloyd's Play For Publisher Event From February 28-March 2, 2019 

Wow! Extremely excited to have been selected again as 1 of 16 writers to participate in Barbara Cloyd's Play For Publisher Event February 28-March 2, 2019. I attended back in 2017, and led to me meeting Mr. Woody Bomar. Woody liked one of my songs from that event (co-written by Jeff Roe & Sandy Zeleznik), which allowed me to present other songs for his consideration- two of which he is presently pitching at the moment. This wouldn't have happened without Barbara's workshop. So glad I'll see Woody again at this year's event!  

Barbara's workshop is over 3 intense days of publisher feedback. The list of publishers include:  

Chris Oglesby – BMG 
Rusty Gaston – THIS Music 
Bobby Rymer – Writer’s Den 
Janine Appleton Ebach – Curb Word 
Woody Bomar – Green Hills Music Publishing 
Ciara Shortridge – Disney Publishing

From the last event, I began co-writing and friendships with Jayne Sachs & Todd Dickinson!

I'd like to thank all my co-writers for their friendship & talent in the creation of songs that allowed me to be selected to Barbara's event: Jeff Roe, Jayne Sachs, Kelly McKay, Todd Dickinson, Brad McKinney, and Bobby Evans. I love yinz guyz (Pittsburgheze for ya'll rock)!!
