Studio experience to include a self titled LP in 1984 recorded at
Startec Studios in Wash., D.C. This 6 song LP included tracks that were

Jumping on the “Big Hair” band craze of the
80’s, I (along w/singer Gene Quade) left MerMin to start the band
Quade. Quade packed clubs on the east coast providing an exciting rock
and roll show of all original music! The first release, in 1989, called
“Rock in Motion” sold like wild fire at local distributors. This
release also became the soundtrack for the movie “Straight from the
Heart” and later to be nominated for a Grammy Award for best rock group
or duo with vocals in 1989. This LP is going to be re-released January
2007 by Australian record company Suncity Records. To purchase this on

After the break up of the band Quade, I never really found the group of musicians that all fit although a lot of that time was spent jamming with different players and even getting in a live show here and there. During this period I also started a career in martial arts which has earned me a 5th degree black belt in taekwondo and have owned/operated 3 different locations in the Md/Va area.
Continuing to write and record music in my home studio, and with the “surprise” re-release of my music on Suncity Records, I am now recording my BEST work yet. Look for that release in early 2007 on this site.
