I'm a native of the Cincinnati area. I've always loved and listened to an eclectic mix of music. Started playing guitar when I was in junior high school - used to play and sing with my older sisters. Started writing in High school. Was on again off again with playing and writing over the next 20 years. Play and write pretty steadily now.

    Search @jonmeta (Jon Nelson) and listen to song #1 Humans...if you have the time today or tomorrow, he wants more voices. Spread the word! (I already sent him mine).

    Just wanted to thank you for your listen and kind comments on Little Star. I'm thrilled that you like it! The lyrics were so good, and Erin brought them to life with such sensitivity. Much appreciated. šŸ˜€

    Thank so much for your comment on Mbira '86! I am really glad to hear you enjoyed it, I think it is a favourite of mine from this month. Congratulations on exceeding the 14 track goal (and at such a high level of quality, too!) Good job

    Dang son, you've been productive! I'll have more time to listen soon.

    Hey hey Matthew, lovely to hear from you again. No, I didn't forget you but a ton of family trouble came down the tube last year and just buried me. Send me your email address please, mine is and we'll hook up again.
    I'm working in Holland right now to be near my Mum who's slipping away from us and I had no recording gear and just a crappy old Spanish guitar so I only managed one sing..... Sometimes February is the cruelest month..
    Later dude..
