From the first time he saw the story of Broadway composer George M. Cohan in the movie Yankee Doodle Dandy as a child, Poag dreamt of being a songwriter. With early music influences like Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, Poag learned a lot about showmanship and the ability to sell a song. The Massapequa, Long Island native was captivated by the golden age of 1950’s Broadway; the songs and musical magic of George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Rodgers and Hammerstein helped shape an understanding that music could be beautiful and thought provoking at once.
