ABOUT

Hi,

Nice to meet you!

About me: I am a songwriter/lyricist. I am a novelist and poet. I am a producer. I am versed in both studio and live. I own a full state-of-the-art recording studio (see equipment list below) and video studio. I am proficient in recording, mixing, and engineering. I also own and operate full live PA equipment for small to pretty large venues.

I sing (lead and harmonies), play both lead and rhythm guitar, bass, and keys. I dabble in drums :)

I am very committed to writing and producing GREAT songs, and selling and promoting them (digital distribution, live, radio, etc). Motto: “Work them until they are GREAT” (regardless of the genre).

I create in many genres (Pop, Folk, Rock, Blues, Hard Rock, Metal) because of my wide range of influences and loves (also see below). I am open to other genres so tell me what you think!

I create with various talented songwriting partners, as well as some really great musicians. I perform to promote the music and build fan base. GOAL: inspire, create, produce, sell music and have unbelievable fun doing it. It’s that moment when you hear…”WOW! That is so unbelievably GREAT! Gotta listen to it ALL THE TIME!”

Looking for like-minded folks. Either songwriters, lyricists, musicians (studio and live). Experience level important but not absolute requirement. Diamonds in the rough are still diamonds ? So, it’s an open palette. With us, a band comes together based on the current need to promote. So, it’s always a fluid professional creation for live.

What I am not: I am not interested in a cover or tribute band (they’re great but not my goal or time investment). I am not interested in violent or degrading music or lyrics. I’m not interested in egomaniacs (ego = good, maniac = not good). I am not interested in opportunists who wish to use, take, and leave. I am not interested in not-committed people (you have to be committed to some degree and not “trying something out”). I am definitely NOT interested in judgmental people (in other words: “I am SO great and you are not, and here’s why…!” …please, need to see good in everyone no matter what level). Also, do not judge something you can’t do yourself.

Everyone I work with or works with me, feel the same way. We are creators, performers, and for each other. And with respect.

If interested in talking, finding out more, would love to. Thanks!
