Smooth American balladeer who dressed up his adult ballads &#8212; fit equally for a slow dance or a dentist's office &#8212; with soft synthesizer tones.

<b>Sample lyric:</b> "There's always someone new / To try and help me forget about you / Time and again it does me no good."

Sample lyric: "There's always someone new / To try and help me forget about you / Time and again it does me no good."
