Artist Bio

Influences:   Every song I ever heard that was lyric-driven

This will be easy - if I write it and you like it, you can use it.

Maybe this is a good sign, that I'm actually updating my profile page more than 2 weeks before our official FAWM 2019 party begins!

For those who don't know me... I'm not a musician, but I can hum a tune and write a story.

For those who DO know me... I have no idea why, after all these years, I still haven't learned how to play guitar!

Looking forward to seeing and hearing and working with all my friends, new and old.

Wishing you all well,

    I really appreciate your comment on “I Am Not a Liar.” That lyric did feel special coming into view during the skirmish. The constraints of topic and time did help, and 15 minutes in I felt a strong emotion that guided me the rest of the way, including making the music. Experience helped, too, in avoiding over-writing, as I used to do. Cheers

    God I've just realised in all the scramble I haven't looked in! (And thank you for the sweet comment on Near Paradise which has gotten me off my backside to say "hello"). Far too late here, I'll look in in the morning. or rather, later in the morning!

    Thank you for your comments on "Riffin' In D" and "Pop My Socks"...feel free to download (I will check that it is downloadable). If you need higher quality than MP#, let me know...some lyrics on either would be great. Thank you.

    Fantastic! Really appreciate that license to make the lyric fit the melody. As a writer of lyrics and music, that’s an essential element of the process, allowing lyrics and music to refine one another. Both are detrimented without the allowance of that exchange. I’m always fearful a lyricist is going to say “you changed my lyrics!” Thankfully that hasn’t really happened yet. Thanks very much for the advice re:posting a new song for the lyrics with music. Fits with my experience and was a very helpful confirmation.

    Ok. Usually my method is to simply pay it back/forward when someone comments on a song, but seeing your comment on "Blood on the Water," I have to respond directly. Thanks so much for your very kind words. I really appreciate it, and, in particular, the lyrical compliments from a lyricist.

    Im not so sure mate. I know heat sounds good when you are cold but day after day pushing the high 90s 100 in your scale is a bit much. Usually its great here up the mountain but not this year!
