In March 2020 the whole world changed. Along with millions of other people, I was suddenly unemployed for the first time. Not only was I concerned for my career, I was worried for my family. I spent a couple weeks feeling scared, sorry for myself and a bit paralyzed. Then it dawned on me that this "forced time off" could possibly be a gift if I chose for it to be. 

So I turned off the TV,  and decided to get to work. With the blessing of the Smyrna Opera House in Smyrna, DE I moved all of my recording gear onto their beautiful stage and began to record an album. For the first time in my career, I chose to record someone else's music. And in a beautiful way that was just what my soul needed. I chose to record a tribute to one of my musical heroes...Neil Diamond. 

"Solitary Man" is the culmination of many hours on that stage during the pandemic quarantine by myself....learning all of the guitar, bass and piano parts to some of my favorite Neil Diamond songs, and then recording them one by one late into the night. So "Solitary Man" seemed the perfect title for this compilation. A bit later into the project, my buddy Dave Simmons added some awesome drum tracks to a few of the songs. And then my dear friend Marcia Ramirez recorded some sweet background vocal tracks on 2 of the songs at her home studio in Nashville for me. Their contributions really took this project to a new level and I can't wait for you to hear it!!!!
