I started as a bass player. I was fascinated with the sound and style of Simon Gallup from the Cure and wanted to try to emulate that sound. After playing in 2-3 original bands I began playing guitar and writing songs on a 4-track for a future project that would not take shape until early 2000. I wrote music and played in this band until around 2006, when my drummer, bassist and I joined forces with singer/songwriter Stacy K. (kovbleu). This project lasted about one year until Stacy moved out of town. I stopped playing for quite awhile but missed it. Stacy and I had at one time discussed doing a long distance, part-time collaboration and we named our band "The Homesick". This collaboration finally materialized with our first song on the 2017 FAWM network. I am excited to see what the next FAWM brings!
Yay!!! Good to see you and Stacy writing more... BTW, My main bass is a Geddy Lee Jazz bass that I bought in 2004 or 5. Love that thing!!! 😀
Stacy bought me here...
Your musical talent is putting you on my watchlist!
Yay! Let's do this! 😀
