Bio - skills, instruments played, experience, goals
I was given a nickname by a good friend , "THE SONGMAKER!" Being a life long musician/songwriter, I felt that this was one of the highest compliments one could receive! I was born in Springfield, Ohio and played in a few well known bands like Scram, No Reason, beards ghetto and The Press, all 4 bands getting a lot of attention in their day and have been or about to be re-released on which is the world's largest Indie label, specializing in 80's and 90's classic rock. Being gifted with the art of music, I feel that it is my duty to use my talents and give back, if I am lucky enough to get you people to buy my music. I hope to be in a position soon to be able to feed and help as many children as I can. It makes me sad to know we live in a world where there are children dying everyday needlessly. It's up to all of us who can to give back! I own my own record label, (BUGZY PEPPER RECORDS) and I am currently working on larger labels for distribution deals. A multi-musician, composer, producer, engineer, performer and teacher, I have recorded over 500 records/cds/demos producing, engineering, composing and performing on many of them. I have composed and produced 1000's of radio and video/TV commercials and several short films. My education and experience consist of 2 Associate Degrees in audio recording and video/TV production, certified by digi-design for pro-tools, several teaching development programs and over 25 years in the recording business. I have won many awards including 2 TELLY awards and 1 DAVEY award. I also was the Director of the Audio Department at The International College Of Broadcasting for 8 years. I have co-written, recorded and performed with many great artist. Some of my favorites are Gary Nickell, Rob Myers, Kenny Aronhalt, these boys know how to make GREAT MUSIC! For those of you who are/were fans of my last band, "TREES", I should announce that I have left the band and Trees no longer exist. I know many of you that believed in us will be disappointed but, even though it was a tough decision, I decided it was not the band for me. There was a lot of LOVE, sacrifice and hard work put into the band TREES but I am sure whatever I do next will only be better. I guess I wasted a little bit of my time but learned a big lesson. Really a sad story because as before, labels were showing interest and we made the top 25 CD's of 2007 in Dayton's local releases but egos got in the way and once again, someone else didn't get it. You can still buy this CD at CDBABY.COM or you can just contact me here for a copy of that or any one of my releases. I am currently working on my next project and recoding my FIRST SOLO CD and GOD'S WILLING, I will release it soon! Thanx for stopping by and I hope my music will touch your heart and make YOUR DAY A BETTER DAY!
