When I was 14 years old I remember telling a friend that I wanted to be a songwriter. I might have well been saying that I wanted to be an astronaut. I had no idea how to make this dream happen. But I wanted it. Bad.

For more than 35 years now I’ve been lucky to make a living writing songs, making records and playing shows. I’ve also found ways to use music to bring about change.

Whether I’m performing concerts, recording, writing songs with friends or working with individuals and groups to help them tell their story, giving a keynote, writing a book or leading a workshop, music is at the center of what I do..

It’s all based on a song –– actively reaching out to find the story, putting it into words and then hanging it on a melody and letting it fly..
