Born and raised in Northern Virginia. A product of the 1960’s handed me musical influences too large to quote. Let’s just say: “In my opinion, the best of musical times” I played in many local bands as a drummer early on; and started writing original material for my band “Poor Thomas”. We had a decent following locally for years while continuing to play into my mid thirties. Then my second career took off... always wanting to be a Police Officer which led to that opportunity in 1991. Almost 25 years of service kept me away from my music although not completely, but long enough to keep me from enjoying it the way I used to. Now since having retired, I decided to find a career after Law Enforcement, the answer was quite clear. I began writing and performing again, and enjoying this time of my life. Some of my music was actually inspired by experiences as a police officer; but most of my music is about trial and error and good times growing up…. and loving to perform and share my music with the world

Streets Of Truth


I've had the pleasure of knowing producer Jim Cartwright since 1993 when we worked
together on my debut album titled "Streets Of Truth". I was able to secure a label 
release contract with a local company "Country Showcase America", which resulted in
around 10,000 copies sold locally.

Needless to say, Jim's production was a defining contributing factor to the success. 
Move forward 22 years to 2015 and Jim and I teamed up again to record an EP of
4 songs titled "Moment Of Truth". Two of my four original compositions from the
project shot to the #1 position with a Hollywood, CA. based promotions company and
syndicated radio show where both of the songs would remain in the top 10 well into

Once again...Jim's expertise as a producer of the project was crucial to the success of
my songs. I would highly recommend any aspiring artist or songwriter In search of
Independent production or Independent label to consider producer Jim Cartwright and
Fame & Fortune Entertainment and Records.
