I was a part of UpstateLIVE Music Guide for over 6 years as print editor, lead writer and adviser, my new home is here at NYS Music - New York's Music News Source. It's an exciting, huge step forward! I've worked in and around the music business for over 40 years in CNY as a musician, band manager, agent, promoter, publicist and stage manager. Music has been my love and part-time mistress since my teen years, it's responsible for my greatest joys and biggest heartbreaks. Live music, ain't nothing like it!
