A songwriter at heart.

A song is a vehicle. Where do you want to go?

Happily Married......In songwriting, at first it puzzled me why happily married couples loved sad break up songs. They would dance so close, and hold each other, or just hold hold each others hand. Then it occured to me, we know we are lucky. That could have happened to us just as easily. A lot better men than I have lost their spouse or had to go through divorces. Are you lucky too?

I have had the privilege of working with several studio musicians and engineers on my studio music. Michael Pollard, Randy Wills, Mark Hampton, Warren Rupp, Milo Deering, Garland Gray.
