From Warehouse to The Next Stage out of Town
Tell us about yourself and your music
I live in Taunton Massachusetts. Live in a house where my grandfather once had a pine grove and cabin now being taken over by tree cutters. I work graveyard at a local warehouse to support my music. I have 20 original music CDs out and available on the web. I have a youtube channel with a video of me on acoustic guitar doing my songs along with other stuff. Also CD baby has most of my 130 recorded songs on a separate youtube channel
