Ever since I can remember, I was always singing, whistling or banging on garbage cans with a pair of 2-A drum sticks. I was born in the Bronx, NY and grew up in New Rochelle, New York, where I was raised by Rose and Neil Migliore. I was the middle of three sons, George on one side and Arthur on the other.
I made my bones in many local bands as a drummer and vocalist, fronting Eric Von Zipper And The Flies, The Mello-Kings, Danz, Moonlite, The Pills, Almost Human and The Bam Bam Project. I’ve had the distinct pleasure of playing and recording with bass player Huey MacDonald (Bon Jovi), Keyboardist Rob Sabino (Diana Ross, Bryan Adams, Madonna, Bowie, Jagger, etc….), Guitarist Ralph Perucci (Paul Reed Smith Band) , Drummer/producer Vito Luizzi (Johnny Winter), Guitarist Andy Aledort (Editor of Guitar World magazine, Dickie Betts), Bass player John Stoltz (Dickie Betts Band, Allman Brothers Band) Sax player Dan Cipriano (Ihorns.com, Springsteen, Allman Brothers) and a long list of great session musicians.
My childhood friend, co-writer and mentor Thom Parisi was my inspiration for drumming and music in general. Together, he and I became published songwriters when our song “Down and Dirty” was signed to a Warner Chappell publishing deal and subsequently placed into the movie “Into The Arms Of Danger” staring the lovely actress Morgan Fairchild. Another composition “Everywhere I Go” made it into the MTV show “Dismissed”.
I’ve also had the pleasure of co-writing with many talented artists and I’m always open to co-writing with others. I co-wrote “I’m Getting’ Gone “ and "Someone Else's Life" with Justin McGovern and Nashville hit songwriter Sandy Ramos (Dixie Chicks, Faith Hill, and others). I've also co-written with Kevin Gallarello and Bill Kelly both from New York and Eric Geibel from Louisiana, all extremely talented guys.
My song “Let It Rain” was released by Norwegian country star Steff Nevers and his CD was certified “gold”. Steff was also nominated for a Norwegian Grammy for “ best country album ”. The CD was released by Universal Music Group and AGR Television Records in Germany.
My songs have been "cut" by many independent recording artists such as Bobby Cutchins, Clinton Gregory, John Stallings, Buck Ford, Buck Austin, Neil Russell, Shane Morgan, Steven Blaine and others.
My wife Kerry, my children Lawrence, Kristin and Teresa, my grandson Hunter, my brothers George and Art, Toni, Dee, Daniel, my step kids TJ and Ashley and my faithful dog Bentley make up my life’s story, with music as it’s soundtrack and my God as director.
So, as I proceed towards the future, I plan on writing as many great songs as possible alone and with others. World domination is not completely out of the question. Yeah right!
