My attempt to wade in the waters of romance. Meant to portray the arch of a particular relationship, influences include James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Marc Cohn, though I manage to sneak in a couple of rockers.
Listen Lyrics The Making of The Palisades
A blend of driving rock and roll tunes and a few Ben Folds-type ballads. Songs about murder, disillusionment and not taking no for an answer.
Listen Lyrics The Making of Warts and All
A terrific blend of ballads and rockers, Maddy's debut album showcases her considerable talents not only as a singer, but as a composer. Her songs can be found at Amazon, iTunes, CD Baby.

A second collaboration with singer/songwriter Tricia Kositzky. Piano, percussion, violin, bass and sax backup Tricia’s poetry about a westward trip on the rails.
Listen Lyrics The Making of Trainsongs
A change of pace for me, a collection of up-tempo, guitar driven tunes about looking back, dissatisfaction and family.
Listen Lyrics The Making of Pause
A partnership with singer/songwriter Tricia Kositzky with additional vocals by Kristi French. A collection of soulful songs of introspection and hope.
Listen Lyrics The Making of The Dragon Breathes...
Piano-based rock and roll with many of my favorite songs to date. Attitude rockers are balanced nicely with songs about marriage and parenthood.
Listen Lyrics The Making of Better Than This

Listen The Making of Piano Solos

Listen Lyrics The Making of Rocks Off On Humboldt
A superior effort to Rocks Off, and a nice summary of the mindset of a 24 year old.
