In the Summer of 2014, I was living in Spain with my wife Maria in the Small Village of her family, and her birth, in Villar Del Rey, population about 2000.
We were in between concert tours, in Germany, Italy Croatia, Slovenia, and I had a keyboard, a studio mic, a laptop, and a wifi connection. I started posting my session player music website resume to various online session player services and since then, I've built up a very good roster of clients. I'm still working 5 nights a week, as a solo piano vocal entertainer, but enjoy taking on some very interesting projects.
Many of my music clients come from Airgigs, A website where artists can hire session players, vocalists, mix down engineers, etc, I'm listed as a sax player, keys, vocal, arranger and full demo production.
Here's a track I Wrote and sang for the Cosmic Pimp Band in Switzerland called Main Squeeze
More of my Session work to come.

I'm currently working on a 4 volume release for the Yamaha Disklavier player piano
for Player Piano Premier, featuring 40 of the greatest songs from Elton John.
I was the pianist with Long John Baldry, for many years, the blues legend who discovered Elton in the mid 60s as a young man. His music has been an inspiration since I heard his 1st CD in the 1970s, I'll post some of the audio version of these, it's been quite challenging to put his vocal and piano style into a cohesive arrangement, but the results have been beautiful
Recently I performed with one of the best artists on the Gulf Coast, Mr. Lee Yankie, and the Hellzyeas at the Florabama, He's an amazing guitarist and I hope to do some recording with him soon.
