The works of Award winning author, Rick Pipito, and more


Alcohol Suntan

An original tune I wrote a few years back with John Caputo called, “Alcohol Suntan.” It’s not quite the electric version, but just as fun to play and sing.

Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer”

Being all couped up in the house I’m sure has everyone looking forward to a hopefully COVID free summer. I always blast this song with the windows down on a nice day. Figured I’d do my own little arrangement of the Don Henley classic and see how it goes. If the video doesn’t work embedded, then click the link.

Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin'”

I remember seeing Tom Petty in concert during the late nineties. It was a time when I was going through a few issues of my own and music really got me through it all safely. I decided to cover Free Fallin’ in the hopes that it’ll get you all past this crazy time and to where we can resume some sense of normalcy.


One of my original instrumentals written a few years back.  I’m beginning to post some of my songs as well as covers during this pandemic.  I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe.  We will get through it.  Enjoy the music.

Don’t Stop Believin’

I was fooling around the other night and thinking about how many times I’ve been out at karaoke and this song pops up.  Whatever your goals are, never give up, and don’t stop believing that it can happen.  Here’s my cover of the Journey song:

Train of Despair

This is a song I wrote a few years back with John Caputo.  A longer jam version is on under my name, but you can check out me performing it live here.  This is going to be a new thing I do in my little free time, so I’m open to song requests.
