Artist Bio

Influences:   Bach, Beethoven, Beatles, Bela Fleck, Bruce Cockburn, Jethro Tull, Tom Waits, Lyle Lovett, Laurie Anderson, T Bone Burnett, @GregScheer , @StevenWesleyGuiles, @jeffy, @danieljacob, @dragondreams, @sapient and many other fawmers

I wish I could nail it down, but I'm just too flakey for that. My music runs from Americana to Zydeco. I've written a Punk song that features Kiri Te Kanawa. That should be a hint.

I write children's songs, love songs, drinking songs, vulgar songs and spirituals.

I play the guitar okay, I bang on the piano, and with varying degrees of competence (generally on the lower end of the spectrum) play the flute, saxophone, clarinet, trombone, trumpet, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, and didgeridoo.

I subscribe to Robert Heinlein's Perfect Man idea (http://izquotes.com/quote/390848) and I've done most of the things on that list. I haven't died gallantly yet, but it's on my bucket list.

2018 Goal: 14 Really solid songs, and whatever other material happens launch out of this brainium.

2017 - 21 Songs. Highlight: an Exquisite Corpse performed live with the other songwriters at a FOP in Austin, TX.

2016 - 17 songs, not a keeper in the bunch

2015 - 14 songs, by the skin of my teeth.
2014 - 30 songs completed.
25 songs written by me including
4 collabs and corpses
6 additional songs written as my alter-ego
2013 - 32 songs completed.
27 songs including 6 collabs written by me
5 additional songs written as my alter-ego.
2012 - 14.5 songs completed.
2011 - 14 songs completed.

I also write as my alter-ego @mystupidbrother and my band @thumperandsmash.

    So ambitious! Impressive! Thanks for the comment on “I Missed the Train.” You gave me a perspective to think about especially when a song comes out of nowhere or at least during early morning insomnia.

    Dude, I'm out of the challenge. Lost a few pounds in Jan and switched tacks... decided to bulk my legs a bit to help train my knees in for the summer races 😮 I'll support from the sidelines though and of course look forward to hearing some tunes 😁

    hey, i prob should've asked for clarification on this on the forum thread, but which variant(s) of sax is it that you play (alto, tenor, etc.)? if i'm fixing to arrange a chart with a sax part for you to play, it'd be helpful to know. thanks! 😀
