Artist Bio

Influences:   too many to list here.

Began songwriting in 2009, and FAWM/5090/NaSoAlMo in 2012. I perform at a local farmers market and belong to a local music association. For me music is a hobby, all for fun, and songwriting is a sort of personal self-psychotherapy.

Challenge focus will be mostly solo and theme based writing (electric vehicle and solar panel adventures, sustainability, relationship songs, dives back into the past, forecating futures, silly, experiments, and the inevitable mashup of two or more of the preceding themes in writing games). Then there is always the odd inspiration.

In addition to Bandcamp and YouTube for music, I also paint a little and mainly post art and photos of real life on Instagram

UPDATE 2/9/19: Not much energy/desire to write/play/listen due to not feeling well. Once again relearning my lesson about minimizing time on the forums, especially the opinionated ilk.

UPDATE 2/22/19: Back on track hoping to cross the finish line with a few days to spare as life gets busier again.
