Dr. J is a "trop rock" singer-songwriter like Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, and Zac Brown.
"A beach bum with a PhD"
Dr. J has spent his entire life on the water from Key West to Put-in-Bay to his current home in coastal Georgia near Savannah/Hilton Head.
His simple but well-crafted songs feature clever lyrics and good-time story-telling about life on the beach, the boat, and the water.
Dr. J has played the Savannah St. Patrick's Day parade, the main stage at the Traverse City Film Fest, opened for Aaron Tippin, and been a featured artist on the "Island Time" show, winner of the 2014 Trop Rock Show of the Year award in Key West.
