As so many have asked me about having a website, I wanted to provide a place where folks could find me and see what I’m up to these days. 2019 celebrates the fourteenth consecutive year that A Bassic Life has been online. So please feel free to browse to your heart’s content.
I extend my heartfelt thanks to all of you who have been supporting my works. Music is shared around our world, and I’m glad that I can share my music with you!
I have released a new single song in March 2019 titled “First Peace After The Rain” that is now available on CD Baby! “First Peace After The Rain” is a mid to up tempo vocal song that reminds us of the peace that we feel after heavy rains fall in our lives both literally and figuratively. During the rains challenging issues and thoughts can come to mind and we realize that we that have the power to turn negative thoughts into positive ones. When one is outdoors and the heavy rain stops, even the animals are quiet for a few very peaceful moments. This song’s intent and spirit is to reflect upon how the rain will always cease and how there is peace for us after the rain falls.
I have released a new single song in January 2018 titled “October’s Groove” that is now available at CD Baby! “October’s Groove” is an up tempo instrumental single that celebrates the vibrant month of October in our lives. The autumn months of September, November, and December all have their own groove; their own tempo in the pulse of our being. October has a groove all its own, with millions of people celebrating in festivals around the world that identify with this special transitory month. Enjoy this special groove inspired by the month of October any time during the year whenever you listen.
I have released a new single song in January 2016 titled "Song for My Family" that is now available
at CD Baby!
We all come from family, each and every one of us. Our immediate family members are often close to us, and we keep them near and dear. And there are others who, while not immediate family members to us, show us love and caring throughout our lives as though they were immediate family members.
“Song for My Family” is a celebration of family, and is a song for all of our families. Let us keep family as a foundation of our lives, and allow the love that we receive from family to keep us filled with a joyful, loving spirit to share with each other.

I have continued to work and record bass tracks for my friend Tom Chappell a.k.a. TN'T on the great music that he has made with his late wife Trish Chappell since 2003. Most recently, we have worked together on their 2014 CD release titled "Don't Let Go". Going forward, Tom and I continue to collaborate on his new material to be released in the near future.
