Debut Album

A Wolf by

Any Other Name




This album has been a long time coming, and Time, being the flexible, fluid and plastic thing that it is, gave me the title first:  “A Wolf by Any Other Name” has traveled with me and stayed with me for years, enduring the vagaries of my existence.


The music on this album spans the bulk of my adult life.  There are songs that go back to my college years and others that are ruminations and contemplations of my life as it is now.   The world that I’ve always inhabited has been edged in magic and mystery, and this is reflected in my songs.

“Because We Love” was poured into me almost fully formed:  I was up in the middle of the night with my guitar, and I heard the song winging its way through the starlit air.


There are songs about longing and unbearable loss, like “Bitter Queen” and “Talisman”.  Others (“Nostalgia” and One-Minute Stories”) are musical snapshots of moments that imprinted themselves deeply on my being.


“Jane’s Song” was a gift from my beloved cat of 20 years and it’s her story that she shared with me after she passed.  “Theory of Flight” expresses the fundamental belief upon which I stand.
