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 160 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, Nat Geo, Discovery and more in 20 countries around the world.

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 DownTown Nashville EP debuted in the Top 5 Most Added on the AMA Chart at US Americana Radio and the Rock'n'Roll Romantic album was played on over 80 stations across 3 radio formats in the US. Current single "Turn Around And Go" is on over 160 stations in 21 countries.

The DownTown Mystic On E Street EP featuring Max Weinberg & Garry Tallent from The E Street Band has been released in the UK and Europe and includes the single "Way To Know", which went to #1 on the Roots Music Report Chart.

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.
