Read my blog

Simply put, I'm a Creative Content Provider. Through my company, Sha-La Music, Inc., I create & produce artistic content for today's Music Market via Publishing, Licensing and Distribution.

I began as a songwriter/musician playing in bands involved with various Production and Publishing deals. Formed Sha-La Music, Inc. as an Indie Publishing and Production company, which would morph into Label and Management.

Sync success with top Music Licensing companies in NY, Chicago & LA, including music placements in Movies and over 100 TV shows like The Voice on NBC, The Carrie Diaries on the CW, American Pickers on the History Channel, as well as shows on MTV, CNN, USA, TLC, WeTV, Discovery and National Geographic.

Besides producing, I also have my own artist project, DownTown Mystic, an ensemble project featuring some of the top musicians in the music industry. DownTown Mystic has been released at Radio around the world and successful in developing Brand recognition at various radio formats.The self-titled DownTown Mystic CD, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed European released STANDING STILL CD via Sony Music, spent 10 months on the Americana Radio Charts.

The DownTown Mystic On E Street EP featuring Garry Tallent & Max Weinberg from The E Street Band, includes the single "Way To Know", which went to #1 on the Roots Music Report Chart and #1 in Europe for 3 weeks. DownTown Mystic's latest release, the DownTown Nashville EP, debuted in the Top 5 Most Added on the AMA Chart at US Americana Radio. DownTown Mystic's next release will be the Rock'n'Roll Romantic album, out in summer 2016.

Need a manager? Don't call me because I no longer do that. Need a Label or Distribution? I can help there because Sha-La Music has worldwide digital distribution with The Orchard.
