Seriously, how cool of a name is LOCAL BAR SINGER?
Ever since I turned 21 and started going to the local bars, the guys that I'd see on stage became heroes to me and I KNEW I wanted to be them.
I traded my tennis racket for a guitar and got to work.
I've always been a huge Parrothead (Jimmy Buffett fan) because of his story-telling songs and how much fun his concerts are. There is certainly a LARGE INFLUENCE of Jimmy's style in my music.
After years of playing and singing, and writing tons of songs, books, and making (writing, directing, filming, editing) 7 feature films, and 2 musicals, it was finally time to record the first album.
In January 2018, I found Pearl Sound Studios and Grammy winning producer Chuck Alkazian to finally record Tired of Searchin'. The album was officially released on July 27, 2018 and is already garnering comparisons to Jimmy Buffett and Kenny Chesney music.
My passion is still entertaining people and I try to make that abundantly clear on stage--whether it's an acoustic show or with the full band. When you see a Local Bar Singer show live, my only goal is for everyone to walk out of there saying-- "Damn, that was fun."
My favorite line I've written is from the song Tired of Searchin'...It's not just about music, but about life and always being willing to try new things.
"LISTEN TO NEW TUNES, AND MAYBE SOMEDAY SOON, YOU'LL CATCH YOURSELF SINGING ALONG."
