The Emotions of Mind, MainStream, The Carmen, Ray Dearth and Three of a Kind, The Double Eagle Band… Why now this name?
Mom always called me er Ray of sunshine. I thought I should be Ray of De Earth. I'm kind of down to earth anyway.
Do you play live?
Staying pretty busy writing and recording since the break up of the double eagle band, I've had more time to concentrate on my songs. I would love to hook up with a working band and tour again someday..

Let me think a moment… OK Sure!
I love Country but, I cut my teeth on rock. I like it all.
Cambria California, though I live in Indianapolis, worse luck.. I think it's the most beautiful place in the USA. It inspires me and rejuvenates my brain, I LOVE the Pacific west coast sunsets..
