ABOUT

65 year old Christian Singer-songwriter would love to build Holy Spirit filled ministry team, with original gospel music, moving into contemporary throne room praise, with finally moving into Holy Spirit led ministry.. Primarily aimed at lost and confused souls, A bridge kind of music that can show them we can identify with their hurt and failures, as well as lead them to the answer.. The word of God.

I've copywritten 152 songs, and I have newer ones yet to copyright. To date I've written over 200 songs, and (being my own worst critic) I believe some of them to be hit potential (not that this is my main goal)! I'm mainly a rhythm guitar player, but learning some good lead licks and a little Bass as well. I can sing in a wide variety of voicings (listen to my music list). My wide vocal range is my best asset.

I've got one album on the net "Hold On To Me" but it was a hurried venture (most of the songs in my music list are on it).

It's kinda hard for musicians to gel.. but it starts with by connecting, and trying each other out for the feel. Interested?

Influences

Varied; I have mimicked singers throughout the years, and my voice varies from Soprano to Bass depending on the needs of the song. The Beatles were my very first influence, but as the years progressed I enjoyed musicians from a lot of genres.. and the list goes on and on!

I started mimicking the Beatles when I was in 2nd grade, moving into mimicking country, pop and rock singers and all their hits down through the years. I just love to sing! I guess you'd say I remember the songs more than the artists who wrote them.. After becoming a Christian.. I fell in love with various styles of praise music also, but I don't limit myself to this exclusively.

Part of me wants to commit to Christian music altogether, and another part of me is hooked on my love songs, bluesy songs, (country, pop and Rock) and other stuff I've written.
