Welcome to Next Phase...

For me, music is the next phase of my life, and since we are all sitting on the cusp of the next phase of our lives, I hope Next Phase will be part of your evolving music experience, too. Next Phase is a loosely knit group of musicians in and around Boston's North Shore who share a passion for music and (more or less) compatible tastes in what can vaguely be described as folk-rock-traditional-alternative-American-Celtic-pop-country-almost-but-not-quite-mainstream music. I guess you'll just have to listen to decide for yourself what to call it.
Most of the music here starts with my original work, with a whole lot of help from a bunch of folks who are far more talented than I am, musicians that I'm lucky enough to know and count as friends. Poke around the site (look under the "The Music" tab for mp3's and lyrics), and see what the songs are about, how they sound and who gets the credit for bringing each of them to life. And don't forget to tell us what you think, we are here to share, after all, and want your feedback.

All the best,*
