ABOUT

59 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 finaly 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.

To date I've written over 160 songs, and (being my own worst critic) I believe some of them to be hit potential! I'm limited to what I play (self taught) mainly rhythm, but learning some good lead licks. I can sing anything I can learn. My wide vocal range is my best asset.

I've never published anything yet, and time is running out (I'm 56 years old!), but I've copywritten 152 songs, and I have a few newer ones to copyright

Influences

Varied; I can mimmic some of just about everyone from Willie Nelson, to the Beatles, to Barbara Striestand, to Kenny Rogers, Areosmith, Steve Perry, Bob Seger, Elvis, Dolly Parton!

The list goes on and on.. I started mimmicking the Beatles when I was in 2nd grade, moving into mimmicking the Osmonds and Michael Jackson at age 12, along with the Guess who, Chad and Jeremy, moving into all the 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..

I remember some or most of the words to tons of copy songs, but really like my own songs best, although they lack some of the spice without breaks, rolls and all the bell and whistles playing with a group offers.
