Artist Bio

Influences:   Bob Dylan. Neil Young. The Band. The rest of the pantheon as well, but primarily that holy trinity.

2018 note: I'm moving at the end of this month. It's gonna be a huge move. Great timing, I know! We'll see what songs I manage to throw in the face of Fate despite that.

I've been writing songs since I was about eight, and have hundreds of them by now, more than two decades later. I've been doing FAWM (more or less) every year since 2006, and wrote twenty-eight songs my first year instead of fourteen.

And right now, on the cusp of my thirteenth FAWM, I have no idea how to write a song.

This is nothing new. I feel this way every time I finish a song. I feel this way at every moment when I'm not actively writing a song. And honestly, if I stopped to think about it, I would probably even feel this way WHILE I'm writing a song.

Every time, I'm starting from scratch. Every time, I'm back to square one. With every song I manage to achieve, I'm reinventing the wheel. Reinventing the will.

But where there's a will, there's a way. And somehow, the songs keep happening.

Welcome (back), friends and FAWMers!

    Thanks so much for your kind words Jinx on This is how I live 😀

    I completely resonate with what you say about not knowing how to write a song. It happens in a part of my brain I don't control. It's pretty magical really.

    Hi, thanks for taking a listen to my tune and leaving your thoughts. Glad you liked it. 😀

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 2

    Haha! Loved your bio. I think most of us songwriters can relate, if we're honest.

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 2

    I so relate to your bio. I have had a few years where life (house move, surgery, bereavement) happened at the same time as FAWM...and also your comments on songwriting....It does feel like each time is the first and I fumble my way along..haha.
