Soul of Fire


I am only interested in playing and writing original music mixed with a few covers. Despite my ability, style, and interest. I take music very serious and don't play to be cool or be liked in an artificial manner. Each song to me is a story a painting a piece of life. The ability to create music, express it and have fun with the band is parliament. If it works it works if it doesn't then it doesn't. Creative competition and support will take us somewhere. No vibe No jam No band! I don’t care if you think your the best player in the world!
Creativity, Discipline, and Good Vibes! or bust! Lived in San Diego, Los Angeles, Bay Area. So what!!! Age is not a factor- younger, same, older. I like all styles of music just not all music. If you have a question ask me. I started playing more then 30 years ago but, can only say about 15-20 have been serious. Bring it! or Fling it!

The music you can listen to on this page was recorded in 2013. The latest recording was done in 2017 and can be found on ITunes it's call Distance! Same band
