Poetry Book

My first book of poetry, Tickle gurgle Tock,
is a collaboration with Anna.  Her drawings
as well as the hand made cover, convey the
world of sea and urban myth of the poems.

Music
Original Songs

My lyrics come from writing down what I
observe... most of the time. Sometimes I
wonder "What made me think that?"  The
rhythms are rooted in New Orleans back
beat with reggae and other world  beats
showing up from time to time.  I most enjoy
giving concerts of original music from
myself or songwriter friends. The world has
enough cover bands.
