Prior to Mr. Mister's breakthrough 1985 album, Welcome to the Real World, he turned down the opportunity to be lead singer with the groups Chicago and Toto. Mr. Mister would also release three albums before breaking up on 25 September 1990. A fourth Mr. Mister album, Pull was recorded in 1989, but ultimately never released (BMG Japan cancelled plans to release the album in 2001).
Subsequently he was a member of Third Matinee with Patrick Leonard, before he released his only solo album to date: Shelter Me from the mid 1990s, featuring the singles "The Best Thing" and "My Oxygen", a remake of Nik Kershaw's hit. In 1997, he turned down an offer from Patrick Leonard to record a second Third Matinee album.
His songwriting clients include Kenny Loggins, Madonna (Golden Globes and Grammy nominated song, "I'll Remember" from With Honors), Josh Groban, Celine Dion, Chaka Khan, Donna Summer, Dionne Warwick, The Pointer Sisters, Meat Loaf, Patti LaBelle, Hall & Oates, BB Mak, Bill Champlin, Al Jarreau and many others.
