ABOUT

Hello. I do not do cover or tribute songs. I write and play original tunes. My strength lies in lyrics. However, I do write music but I work with musicians for their input when I'm in a band.

As for the songs attached, the lyrics are mine (except Crystal Eyes is music and lyrics by me) and the music was done by my cousin. We recorded and exchanged ideas via the internet since the three of us were from different states.

My main goal is to finish an album and market it. I'm not into small gigs at this time and would rather create an album and then see what happens. I already have an account with CD Baby and have them distributing my music.

I have enough material to cover an album but have been looking for a singer (original singer did not work out). Getting a band together is easy once I find that "voice".

One last thing, if you say you are a singer, please make sure you have some recordings of yourself on this site. It's amazing how many say they sing but they have no recording of themselves. For those who are serious, it would make the search much easier.

This also holds true for those that play instruments. Having a recording of yourself would greatly help those in need of your talent. I will be searching for original and creative musicians once I find the singer.

So if you want to go original and want to try another path, email me: qblues3 -at- g m ail

Thanks for reading and good luck!
