My way of life. Couldn't imagine life without it. It gives me a purpose, a way to express myself and sense of reward and accomplishment.
I come from a very talented family. Many generations. Each taking it a little further. I have always wanted to "make it big" as a singer/songwriter/performer in honor of my families musical heritage. Now, my children have caught the bug and all focus is on them.
Where do I begin?
Mule Skinner Blues
Vince Gill, Merle Haggard, Brad Paisley, Willie Nelson, my Grandparents, my Parents and Uncles, Kiss
It is a gift given to me by God. It allows me to express myself. I love the people and their response.
Love, humor, awakening, reality........
At home. Safe. Enlightened. Powerful.
Repetitive and "cookie cutter". I would love to see an artist have balls enough to start bringing back traditional county sounds.
Brand new member. I can't rate yet.
Most of us have honed our craft over many years. Some possess what other dream about. The amount of work that goes in behind the scenes to put on a show (practice, equipment maintenance, travel, set up and tear down, etc.) and getting decent money for it all is like pulling teeth.
Always! When I don't have a show of my own, my Wife and I are out supporting other acts and the venue they are performing at. It is imperative.
I am captivated by an artist who is real. Real to themselves and their audience. Songs that are from the heart. Any seasoned musician/singer can tell from your performance if music is your way of life or if you are just going through the motions because you think it is cool.
My daughter, Gabrielle Rabideau. You'll be hearing from her very soon!
