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!
yup another cracker - just excellent.
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.
Thank you for your comments on 'Celestial Promises'.
Hi, thanks for taking a listen to my tune and leaving your thoughts. Glad you liked it. 😀
Haha! Loved your bio. I think most of us songwriters can relate, if we're honest.
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.
Jinx I know you're busy but it's always good to hear you. 😀
Welcome back, Jinx! I look forward to your beautiful songs! 😀
Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018!
