Java Jel originated in Boston in the late 1980s as a singer songerwriter in Harvard Square and poetry readings. Over the years, I’ve been a devoted hobbyist of music and performance, taking my brand of folk rock to clubs and bars in Philadelphia, Florida, New York and elsewhere, with occasional radio play on independent stations. Song titles include Kerouac Shack, (I wanna kiss you like a) Reptile, Rain Forest and a kid’s musical called Reversadoodle. CDs include Flavors and Cafe, as well as a kids CD called Java Jr.
