In 1995 I established the band Rattlebone from a previous situation and we had some slight success (if that's what you want to call it) on the NJ scene. We had the EP, the "ROCK" look, the small distribution deal and we were playing consistently with many of what used to be the big arena bands. Sadly, around 1999 that came to an end, though we've still all managed to stay in touch for the most part. I was privileged enough shortly thereafter to audition as the frontman for a popular band from the 80's in Los Angeles. Unfortunately and fortunately at the same time, the position was offered to a friend of mine by the name of Robert Mason. Robert is a great vocalist and had some prior success with such artists as Lynch Mob, Ozzy Osbourne and Cry of Love. I walked away learning a lot from that experience, including to expect the unexpected. Later I began vocal studies with various instructors, including vocal coach extraordinare Don Lawrence, in order to fine tune my craft. If there's one thing for sure, it's that you can NEVER learn enough!
In late 2004 I finished recording vocals on another original project. Known as Rogosonic, the group was made up of some great musicians; Stephen Ross, Ron Cannella and Richie Mattalian. In late May of 2005 I was asked to record two songs for NJ guitarist Jack Frost (Seven Witches, Bronx Casket Company, ex-Savatage). His 2nd solo album "Out In The Cold" is slated for U.S. release in early 2006 and will feature Jack, myself and many popular artists you might remember. Currently, I am writing new material for what will be my solo debut and with fingers crossed, this will see the light of day late 2006. In the meantime I continue to perform acoustic cover shows around NJ and occasionaly have had the pleasure of being joined by some of my old band mates, Mike LePond (Symphony X) and Richie Rodriguez
