ABOUT

I need to find some cats old or young to blend older tastes together,and do covers for fun out.and plan to do a separate project as well,with originals.It must be spontaneous,clairvoyant and visionary,and the lyrics I write and the voice and way i play carry soul and meaning to life,experiences.about being knocked down and getting up again.I'm 37 years old.And have a wide eclectic taste,mostly old.I've played out alot with hundreds of people that I've met along the way.I am in process of recording and have artists and local hookups for the album work.But not to the point where it's a repetitive jam where every song sounds the same.Easy-going guy and willing to bend.
