I've been a musician most of my life, singer, songwriter, guitar/bass player. I started playing music at an early age in many local groups and been out on the road a lot. My forte may have started out as singing but in the past 40+ years I have added producing, arranging, engineering and all around musical production to the mix. My greatest joy was being part of Andrae Crouch & the Disciples group in the late 70’s where I played bass + sang on four albums, touring extensively throughout the world at such venues as the Sydney Opera House in Australia, Albert Hall in London, and Carnegie Hall in NY and the Hollywood Bowl to name a few. I won my Grammy Award w Andrae in 1978 for his Live in London album…what a thrill!
I went on to have my own gospel album on Light Records but eventually drifted back into secular music where I fronted my own group, Spare Hare here in the I.E. full of great players such as Steve Tavaglione, Johnny Meza, Gary Bruington, Mike Hodge, Dio Saucedo and guests from time to time such as Brandon Fields, Michael O'Neal and David Garfield.
In 1984 I was selected as lead vocalist (though one of many over the years) with Tower of Power…my tenure was brief due to illness, but hey, it was very cool while it lasted! Since then I have concentrated on producing other studio projects plus working with my own group that includes my wife, vocalist Delaney AND fellow Grammy Winner and long time friend, saxophonist Glen Myerscough.
I'd love to to talk shop, reminisce or just catch up. My studio is here for pre-production, overdubs, mixing and mastering if you're interested. I'm also the owner of Righteous Maggie Music Publishing and currently a vendor with Pro Backing Tracks. I humbly thank you for checking this out and want people to know that I am dedicated, now more than ever, to using the talents GOD has given me to glorify HIM for the rest of my days.
