ABOUT

** 2020 was an interesting year to say the least; heartbreaking, maddening, anxious, hopeful. I took the initiative to challenge myself creatively - write a new song every month. What did you do in 2020?

While I have been overwhelmingly disappointed in general with what I thought this website was supposed to be about - getting musicians and writers together, there has been little to no contact from anyone since I joined in 2009. Despite this I have not let that disappointment stop me from putting myself out there. It's me, it's certainly not perfect, but it's all from the heart.

It is highly possible that I suck and just don't realize it. However I'm still hopeful of meeting kindred spirits. Here's to hoping... **

Still seeking an experienced, down to earth, no ego, musicians / singers / songwriters for collaboration on original music. Just pay the $10 so that you can email me with links to audio samples if interested. It would be extremely helpful. Come on muse - where art thou?

Self-loathing musician of over 30 years writing and recording alone, well mostly alone. The best listening experience, if any exists, would be with headphones Enjoy these or not - I really won't know.

Influences

The Creator, (That's God - not a band folks) Musically in no particular order, Abasi, Petrucci, Gilbert, Paganini, Morse, Bach, Methany, MacAlpine, Lane, Johnson, Lukather, John5, Vai, Van Halen, Vaughn..the list goes on.

I don't play or sound anything like them, however each has inspired me to pick up a guitar and play while at the same time depressing me enough to want to quit, so thanks for that.
