Order Soul Of The String Album   "Soul Of The String"  

A solo collection of
compositions from

‘Rahj‘

As one half of and founding member of Rocco & Rahj, there were some musical directions I wished to puruse that weren't practical in that setting.  This album represents a collection of those directions and some new flavors incorporated into the old. The concept of this album started out as an  idea with a few tunes and quickly grew to have a personality of it’s own to become a personal inspiration. It enabled me to engage in the  utilization of my keyboard and bass playing as well as vocals.

"I hope this music is as enjoyable for you to listen to as it was to compose and record."
