Back to Delton
I was raised in Southwestern Michigan out in the country just outside a small town called Delton about 20 miles from the big cities of Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. First memories of music was listening to my dads records of Fats Domino and Ray Charles and then when i was 11 along came Meet The Beatles and the exciting sounds of John,Paul,George and Ringo and like a million kids worldwide i was hooked on the sounds they created as well as the rest of the British invasion sounds like the Stones,Who,Kinks,DC5,Gerry and the Pacemakers and whoever else made a record. At the the same time i loved the early Motown with the Four Tops,Temptations,Supremes,Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. It all made for a great time to grow up with life seemingly simpler back then but I can't say if it really was because you just lived your life and those days went by in a blur. Started playing guitar a bit late by most standards when i was about 17 and for some unexplained reason started making up my own melodies and trying to fit them over my simple chord progressions which i still do by the way. Made my way out to California in 1974 and played in a few bands and clubs in the L.A. area. And here 34 years later I have my debut solo CD finally finished and ready for your listening pleasure. Back to Delton is a collection of songs I've written over the last few years and i hope whoever gets a chance to hear these songs enjoys the trip I've created. It was a lot of fun making this CD with help from my friends Mike Milchner, Jerry Juden and Mark Healy. Please enjoy.
