So far in 2013-14 I've written and produced four albums and am working on a fifth. Two; "The river" and "Charleena" in 2013 and "The King of  The Fire", and "once Upon a Perfect Storm" in 2014, and am working on "I'm in Love With a Dream". Many of my songs are ballads with a natural order theme to them, I try to put meaning to them , tell a story or have the listener stop and take pause. There is a pattern or creative reality expressed in many of them with a philosophical alignment to Native cultures.

 Subjects include stuff like Eagles ,Rivers ,Storms ,Dreams, Battle, Love, Spirit, Fire, Wonder, Life, Epic Adventure, and Overcoming or Conquering adversity through Natural Living. I find myself in agreement with native philosophy and teachings

To me not only the exposure but my heritage added to this as having for Ancestors "Woods Runners" Fur Traders and Interpreters also Native blood with many ancestors part of the fur trade dynasty families (Metis) that migrated to Detroit and River Raisin (Monroe) from Canada
