I've been writing songs since 1973 and recording since 1986, currently with Delta Twins (www.deltatwins.com). I try to pen honest, insightful, personal songs blend classic rock, folk, pop, and blues with a modern twist.

This is my 10th FAWM - the last nine I completed early. I entered this month with no energy to write, but who knows.

BTW, I usually have a meter/cadence in mind as I write these, and often times a melody as well (that I tend to remember in my head even if I never write it down or record it). I'll make demos as I have time, but no promises. These days my demos are simply playing live (usually one take rife with mistakes) into my iPhone using the N-Track Studio app or maybe messing with GarageBand. Add a touch of reverb and voila... I have something to remember kinda what I was thinking of when I wrote it, even if it's a bit pitchy and I play some wrong chords. 😉
