Influences: 50s, 60s & 70s folk, country, pop, and rock.
I was the typical consumer-only music fan until getting involved with the filk* community in 2004. Since then, I've spent a lot of time on original music, writing and performing.

Outside of music, my activity usually involves computers, cats, cameras, and science fiction and fantasy literature.
Update for 2021: At this point I feel optimistic about the coming FAWM. (I almost hate to say that, given the surprises of the past few years but...there you go.)

Hi Phil, thanks so much for your comment on Questions! So pleased you like it!
Thank you Phil for the comment, I appreciate it!
hey, tenks for the happies on my camel ditty 😀
Thank you for your comments on _Cantor for Pearls_! I am glad to know the triple rhymes on the verses worked for you; I worry that primes people for a silly song rather than a serious one so it is nice to know that it worked.
Thank you! Yes, the ending is clipped, but just by seconds. I could have let that last chord ring.
Oh, what an interesting idea, to do An Onomatopoeia for Life as a round. It might well work, I'll have to try it! Thank you.
Congratulations on hitting your 14th song! I'm trying hard to catch up.
Thank you also for your comments on "Low Expectations" - music is now posted for listenening!
Thanks for your kind words about "Who's in the Chimney?" -- the music is now posted.
I've been contemplating a song cycle, but didn't think to expand this particular idea. Intriguing. I might even have a start on song no. 2 now that I think about it!
Resigned is it. Too exhausted by it all to be angry any more. Just despair.
Phil, I think your observation about Smallest of Things's metatextuality is a good one. That perspective hadn't occurred to me TBH
Thank you for coming back and listening to my new stuff. Hopefully I can play it for you in person before too long.
Hi Phil! I hadn't thought of a kazoo for the bridge. I might have to see if I can dig one up. We hid them all back when the great grandkids were staying here. 😀
Yeah having a song to break the ice is great. As it turns out I now have two. I don't think that means I can slack off though.
Good to see you back again Phil! I look forward to hearing new songs from you! Have a great FAWM!
