Hey There 

Thanks for stopping by my music website.
Please check out my music, and upcoming shows.
Here and there, I post demo-videos of newer songs that are still cooking in the kitchen.

I love playing my songs for people, and am always moved by the mystical connection between audience and performer.
I'm grateful for every new song, and for every chance to share them with you.

A few years back --during a dark time in my life, when I was looking for some hope-- my therapist taught me about things could help me get out of the hole. He said science has shown several things that lift our minds and spirits from depression.
Medication, yes. But also...healthy food, deep relationships, exercise, prayer and meditation. So, we talked about how I could get more of that stuff.

But then, when he learned I was a musician, he became extremely animated, and excitedly told me how research has shown how musicians get special hormones and brain chemicals from playing and singing.
In a very real way
, he said, music heals us.

"You must play your music," he said, with a stridency and passion that surprised me.

The moment he said this, I knew he'd given words to an unnamed truth I had known for a time. Music is one of the things that saves my life.
I hope it helps save yours too.
And I'm grateful you've stopped by here.

If you happened to be looking for my blog, where I write on all sorts of things, go here.
If you were hunting the cover band I'm a part of, where I get to play with some incredible friends, and raise tons of money for charity, go here.
If you're looking for info about the church I'm privileged to serve, go here.

And, again, I hope you enjoy this site, hope you'll snoop around...and thanks for stopping by....EF
