Distillate is the second release from, what I am calling, the STEEL/FLOWER City Sessions. This instrumental follow-up to Which Way to...The Starlite was recorded during 2020 and 2021 in Pittsburgh. PA and Rochester, NY. Labeled by all as Easy Listening, I tend to refer to it as, "Thirty minutes of 'forget about your troubles'."

An album more than two years in the making is finally here. Which Way to the Starlite is my first full-length album featuring vocals (gasp!) in almost twenty years. To say I'm proud to finally have this out there would be an understatement. A lot of the usual blood, sweat and tears has gone into making this album and I hope you hear that in every note and every single word. Produced by myself and Engineer Extraodinaire Steve Forney (Don't Look Back (The EP), Life Alone, Home) Which Way to the Starlite captures the twists and turns of the ever-changing journey that is this life.

Originally released in 2007 on CD, this newly-revised edition of Yesterday's News (Selected songs from 1988-2020) expands on the 15-track original CD. Yesterday's News marked my return to releasing music after a ten year absence. This "Best Of" collection includes several never-before released tracks spanning the entire career up to 2020.
The album that started it all, way back in 1993 (then titled Black Cat). After a failed first attempt at releasing an album with an outside producer (-cough- Don't Look Back -cough-), I decided to take things into my own hands and produce an album under my own record label. Black Cat was originally released in October of 1993 and was one of the top selling Independent releases for two years running after that. This reissue is remastered and renamed, appropriately, Life Alone for 2022.
