Just a family guy who loves to sing, and can sight read simple piano music (don't grok chords, sadly). I can play trumpet if you need something really low and slow. Mostly I sing, can sight read and I LOVE vocal harmony, e.g. beach boys, acapella, barbershop, doo wap, duets, trios, quartets, etc...
They only let you pick 3 genre's, but I love just about everything. Not crazy about violent lyrics or ultra loud, in your face stuff.
I'm usually AT the MassMind organization. ,o)

Music isn't supposed to be calm and just "lovely". It's supposed to convey EMOTION and FEELING and have a MESSAGE (not necessarily a political one, but some sort of message) and MEANING. I dislike music sung with "flat affect" or no emotion (unless the emotion is numbness, e.g. "Luka"). Listen to any other version of "Brother... " (if you can find it. LOL) and then mine.
