Born in New Jersey, USA. I’ve traveled extensively in the US and abroad. A couple of years ago, I took a trip to Vienna, a center of music and culture for centuries. Being so steeped in the arts and music had a profound effect on me. I came back, no longer just interested in music, but with a new passion for it. I wanted to combine my love for art, literature and music in a single work. Not long after, I started a project that would become the “Journey to Valhalla Suite.” Each song in suite has its own distinct flavor and style, yet each is a part of the greater work.jpmacelrath
