He is a writer of lyrically driven songs that defy genre, blur the lines between comedy and tragedy, and overflow with pathos. He is a performer who connects to his audiences with both ease and intensity, wearing both his cleverness and his heart on his sleeve. There is something slightly twisted about him, yet he is as wholesome as they come. He is an ASCAP award-winning children’s songwriter whose songs have been covered by cabaret artists and punk bands alike. He is a TONY nominated music educator. A composer of avant neoclassical music. A crooner of standards. A rebel. A rock star. And an average Joe.
A musical Renaissance man.
