Well, the website is back online after a brief absence,thanks to the efforts of my cd engineer and good friend Chris Stoll(also new webmaster). Since the last update I have been doing live appearances at concerts and special events such as Roswell, New Mexico's UFO FESTIVAL in July 2001 and this year. I also performed at the INTERNATIONAL UFO MUSEUM with my band mates Larry Clark and Greg Veltri under the name MIB(MUSICIANS IN BLACK). I have performed at other events and at Unity churches around the Midwest, both solo and with my good friend HOPE on keyboards(whose cd I helped to produce).

I added musical atmospheres to a guided meditation cd by Ohio based hypnotherapist/counselor BILL HAMMER called MIND CONTROLS BODY, BODY RESPONDS.


WORLDS WITHOUT END is now officially out of print,available from me directly as a CDR.HEAVEN AND EARTH is in stock and still available. For online charge card orders click the Backroads Music link under the Purchase page. For direct sales and other info contact me at: charel196@yahoo.com.


No new cds are in the works at the moment but still under consideration. THANK YOU for visiting the site and your ongoing interest and support of my music! And special thanks to John Breslin in Ireland for designing this website! Many Blessings to you all!!
