I am a songwriter. I am able to write complete songs and have many original songs under my belt. When I record songs I am able lay down the tracks for all the instruments. These recordings are usually for experimental purposes to develop and craft the song, not for radio quality play. If I provide samples of my music you will hear these types of recordings, demos. The music for the songs I write just comes naturally to my mind, sometimes waking me in the night causing me to grab a recorder before the melody is lost.
As a christian I believe sometimes God gives the music and that he has also given me the power to create. I have even credited him as the author on past songs.
I would like to work with others who have established in themselves that following God is most important. To please Him means we will really be happy. There is no other way to happiness. I live on Okaloosa Island, directly on the beach and this is where many a song has been written. The beach is a great place to work out musical arrangements acoustically especially on a clear night under the stars of God's great glory.

Hard rockin song with a slightly punky edge.

A nice indy song about how God loves us. The song also can be heard as how we as humans love others. Simple message in a fun upbeat song. This song has a unique sound I have not used in any other song since. Its a strange one but I like it.
Infinite Skies - Demo
Infinite Skies - Demo Track number: 5 Year: 2005 Album: Demo Album 2 Genre: Alternative
A song of adoration to God or another person. Could also be interpreted as a song where God is singing over us His creation.
