Sailor Man

Two years ago I moved from L.A. where I had lived for 23 years. I never thought I would remain there for so long, in a city that never quite felt like home, though at the time it seemed to be the only place for a musician to live. And yet the creative flow didn't kick in until I left L.A. and moved to Florida.

Maybe it was being away from the L.A. music scene that got it going, or maybe it is that now when I look out my window, I see a sparkling lake and beautiful wild life. Ironically, the only song on this CD composed in L.A. is about my childhood in Maryland and the river that became my spiritual refuge. That song "Lazy Waters" was recorded by the Byrds.

My years in L.A. were certainly not wasted. I believe that all life's experiences have profound meaning. "A bitter sweet farewell, you've been heaven, you've been hell. Angel Town you're still a part of me."
