Piano Rock / Pop. LA journey man writes piano ballads about lost love. A true talent whose delivery is natural and whose voice is as captivating as it is unique. He draws heavily in style from 1960’s/1970’s piano rock. A first listen might drum up comparisons to Randy Newman, Paul McCartney, and Elton John. RIYL: Randy Newman, Paul McCartney, Matthew E. White, Elton John, Father John Misty. FCC clean.|
