I have been a member of the New York City music and education community for almost two decades. Classically trained I have performed as a piano player and singer/songwriter guitarist in a diverse spectrum of venues ranging from the Juilliard School and Steinway Hall to legendary rock clubs such as C.B.G.B and Irving Plaza.
I am a prolific composer and have been focusing lately on procuring licensing and other opportunities for my music. My most recent placement was in an episode of NBC ‘s prime time drama “Chicago PD”. This was facilitated through Les Scott of Source Q Boutique Publishing in affiliation with Crucial Music. Mr. Scott is also the director of the Phoenix Chapter of the National Association of Industry Professionals.
My current performance project is No Valentine, a New York based trio whose members have been evolving for many years in the NYC music scene and continue to come up with hook laden high-energy songs. No Valentine’s sound is recognized as lean and powerful with lyrical underpinnings ranging from classic rock to the raw edge of grunge. The thread that ties it all together is a riff-based sensibility that lets the listener know they’re in for a raucous good time. The music is created from everyday experiences with a sense of irony and playful misanthropy.
My projects apart from the band span the bayous of New Orleans to the rarefied halls of the Julliard School. I believe strongly in bridging the gap between genres and expanding on my knowledge and appreciation of a broad spectrum of musical influences.
My goal is to seek out new and exciting prospects that will expand my range as a songwriter and musician both artistically and commercially. Please click this link for samples of my music. All songs are available as instrumental tracks as well. Thanks for your consideration.
About "Into Reruns"
“Loving the creative juices flowing in this song! Genius… lovely flawless lyrics. Melody was on point and so was the singer’s vocal. Would listen to this song on repeat for ever..."
“The beat is really awesome... The singer sounds like a mix of Jack White and John Lennon. I would definitely listen to more of their music and feel they have a good solid handle on rock music and how it should sound.”
“The words of the tune were extremely well written, the guitar vibe was magnificent and flabbergasting... The structure of the music was phenomenal!...This particular artist has the possibility to be famous!”

About "Bowl of Cherries"
“Cindy Packs ‘riff on “Bowl of Cherries” is instantly familiar and gives the track a perfect serving of distorted guitar jangle.”
“Pack’s lyrics are full of dead simple truisms about life sucking, but the tune never sinks into nihilistic surrender. “
... “a good lead-off track for No Valentine’s new EP, Can’t Sleep, which is chocked full of cathartic rockers. . Drop by their Bandcamp site and give them a listen. Aside from “Bowl of Cherries”, I also really liked the closer, “You Don’t Care”. “

About "Don't Justify"
“The beginning of this song sounded very similar to popular indie bands at the minute such as Arctic Monkeys... creative instruments and an outstanding, original beat. The lyrics were great and sang with such authenticity, I have rarely heard a voice as talented and wide ranged as this."
“The lyrics are very clear in what they trying to say, and the beat of the song is awesome... my friends go crazy for music this good. It ‘s rare when people make music like this nowadays.”
“The lyrics are inspiring, motivational, provocative,... I love it!”
