Choosing only Three Genre's of Music would put me in a box and make my talent tend to seem limited.. As my talents are a divine gift, and that they started teaching me music theory on piano and from flash cards at the tender age of Four, I am very eclectic and versatile... I know that, in it's own ways limit me... so I at least admit my short comings rather then cost others extra money and myself the embarrassment when I fall flat on my face.. that's why I continue to seem to always have gigs... I guess that is cause to sum it all up on a shorter explanation is that I'm as solid as a metronome!! I will never promise more then I can deliver!

this one could take some time... as there are many... but my all time musical hero was Jim Croce... He seemed to keep trying to aim at the heart of the common citizen, not the rich and famous... "try it once, if you dig it, try it again.." (quote jim croce) but the list of all my different influences range so wide, and encompass quite a bit of almost every style through out history.. there are a few exceptions to that.. i.e. gansta rap, extreme hip hop, heavy club mix, very hardcore death - black metal, baroque and most extreme involved operas... I tend to find myself some place other then where i was when any of those start to play as the nights entertainment!!!
yet another area of my world that will take more time to list then I care to get involved in right this moment... I own my own audio - video recording studio equipment as well as enough live stage enforcement equipment to handle most anything thrown at me!! Ok, short of the Astro Dome!!! lol.. I have for been in the business for the past twenty seven years.. highlights, silver faced twins, marshall tube twin 12" combos, ampeg b-2 rack head and four bass cabinets 2 15"s and 2x= 4 x 10"s cabinets... bose, jbl, cv.. cs800s, crowns, a couple of different rack sets.. midi-keys galore.. hmm.. yea it's like it sounds, a bunch of vintage-antique (old sh!te) equip... but it get's the job done well.. video wise I have two cannon cams both with a terabyte of memory and a panasonic that will hold most any size sd card available and has b.n.c. and f outs... you get the idea... and I feel now like I've went way beyond bragging and boasting.. see why I didn't want to list it all?!?! I have a six string fretless, five string and several four string basses I play quite well.. I'm no victor wooten or john entwhistle (may he rest in peace)!!!! I have a slew of different guitars for different sounds and purposes... for acoustic, bluegrass - mt. music styles, as well as some southern styles, folk and even some country my prefered weapon of choices are always between three of the four 12 strings I own... keys always start off with a weighted 88 key controller.. which I own three.. one of which has to be one of the first of it's kind made in 1985... touch sensor, fully weighted... everything except pitch bend and tune bending wheels / joysticks... and a hand full of tone generators / workstations, sequencers, drum machines as well as two seperate electronic trap sets with brains/drum machines...
ok to much.. I pray I didn't go to far over the line... again i prefer to be the solid backbone, and will play riffs , leads when it's my turn and I'm cofortable with them/it..

I'm trying to tweak this old studio back up since I've had to move it from our former facility into my home...

I know, needs work.. again, just me while attempting to get the studio back right... I will honestly admit I could use a helping hand to do so...
The Cookie Store

this was fun, even though I am still fighting with getting my studio back right, as well as fighting with getting more of my physical strength back after my cardio-events..

Field of Clover Track number: 4 Year: 2010 Album: Unvailed Genre: Other
This was most difficult as much as it was fun to do.. I portrayed all the voices and tried my best to make it sound like a bunch of derelict winos.. It's actually a very subtle protest song against the wars going on over the last few years (stretching out maybe to a decade or two) and the leaders that have gotten us into them... The idea for the way of doing it was inspired by an old Gatlin Brother's song "The Midnight Choir"...
