American Man is my songwriter's tribute to those proud to be American and not shy to express it. My six-track songwriter's EP features the title track American Man and will be released Fall 2016 with support from you, my Patreon contributors. As a songwriter, I aspire for my music to be heard by the widest possible audience, including music lovers, music publishers and especially performing artists in the hope that either an established or emerging artist will make American Man their own and turn it into the next great American country or rock music Anthem.

As a great songwriter once said, the times they are a changin' and now more so than ever. Wealth and income inequality and social and racial unrest threaten to cleave this great nation into warring tribal factions of the have and have not, the rich and the poor, white against black against coats of many colors. We've been lied to and let down by the mainstream media, the politicians, the businessmen and the bankers who would have us believe globalization, marginalization, lost jobs and income inequality are the price to be paid for living the New American Dream. I don't buy it and neither should you.

As a songwriter and published author, I respect and applaud the effort of all my peers. And don't get me wrong; I like cold beer, pick-up trucks and girls in cut-off jeans as much as the next guy or gal. But I also believe music can serve a higher purpose, that while the messenger may fade the message should endure. American Man is first and foremost a great song: just one listen and I know you'll be hooked. American Man, the EP, is a collection of great music with powerful and timely lyrics reminiscent of Guthrie, Dylan, Kristofferson and Mellencamp. You need only read the morning news to know why, now more than ever, words matter.

And while popular music should make you dance, it should also make you reflect. I believe American Man is a rare combination of music that will inspire you to do both.
