The Album 'Hidden Treasures'

After over a decade of challenges, unforeseen circumstances, and eventually a burn-out, January 11th, 2024 is finally the day of the release of Hidden Treasures! I am so grateful to be able to share my cherished guitar tunes with you. They have been written, recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered with greatest care and attention to sound, detail, arrangement, performance, and emotion.

All 6 singles have been released, and the full album will be available in the summer of 2023.

My hope is that this album inspires you as it inspired me all those years not to give up...
