Recording my first album of original songs was a long time dream. My songwriting combines personal stories about loved ones and life with many different grooves. I am as much a product of my early Motown and R&B listening as I am my Joni Mitchell and James Taylor influences. Most of the songs are uplifting, with a focus on the people who are close to me. I sing about hangin' out with my son, being at the airport to meet my newly adopted neice from Korea, following my dreams, cherishing my close friends, and paying tribute to Paul Mc Cartney. 'Heart's Desire' was a labor of love. I'm very proud of the wonderful musicians, singers and engineers who brought their magic to my music.
