ABOUT

Guitarist/vocalist - 35 +years. Songwriting/arranger, producer/technician 20+ years.

I am NOT seeking to join a band, unless that band contains a member(s) who write/play original,intelligent & humorous pop music & they are looking for another writer.

Rather, I AM SEEKING someone/other Songwriters to collaborate with, produce & record original music.

More important than your instrumental proficiency, I am Looking for musicians with vocal match, complimentary writing style, sense of humor. My forte and passion is writing songs and producing a descent recording of them. I have felt the most success, fun and accomplishment, when I was fortunate enough to find a few co-writers in my musical past, who where the John to my Paul, Simon to my Garfunkel.

I am retired from work but am actively the "at home" parental half for an exceptional 15 yr. old.
Therefore I enjoy a great deal of lattitude in how i spend the hours of the day. It's a blessing mostly.
I feel like there are quite a few more songs inside this head, that are just looking for a spark to ignite controlled burning.
