It Ain't No Easy

Now available at Amazon, Itunes, YouTube, Spotify etc.



In 1953 my kindergarten teacher wrote a note to my parents stating that I was a ”monotone”. For 65 years, despite my love of music in all genres, I never sang a note for fear of being ridiculed. Finally upon retirement I decided to  embark on this Quixotic adventure.

Unlike other forms of art, music is usually a collaborative effort of individuals with different talents coming together to create the product. This work is no exception. While the raw material here was created by me it has been brought to life with the indispensable collaboration of my vocal coach and muse David James Foerster and my guitar teacher and music therapist David Meyer. I am also grateful to Shari Kantor, Jaimie Florez, Steven Lucas, and Aaron Shively for adding their considerable talents to this project.


Most of all I am grateful to my wife, Virginia Lanse Lehman, for giving me the encouragement and the space to pursue my passions and live my dreams.
