Music is a huge part of my life. I've been a professional since 1972 as a singer, songwriter, and a trombonist.
Producing songs for TV and Motion Pictures and producing for singers.
People get along, work together, enjoy life.

The pleasure of creating. It is fun or me to write and to experiment with all aspects of music.
Life can be fun. Let's enjoy.
I feel like I am taking people away from problems and into a place that is safe, enjoyable, uplifting, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to do this. I feel most alive on stage.
The musicians' reality is everywhere and everything. It is every emotion. Some need improvement in outlook, perhaps but others are just fine the way they are. Everyone has something to offer in a unique way.
I am exploring Drooble. It is interesting, so far.
Marketing and exposure is frustrating to accomplish.
My local scene is in a place where you can find buildings from the 1200s. It is also very insular. If you were not born here, you will never be accepted as those who were. In some ways it is very old here and there are many brass bands which play, especially at carnival. Sometimes there is something that they call jazz but it is quite different than it is in America, where it originated. I try to see things in the area but the greats seldom, if ever come here.
Excellence, something unique.
Jacob Collier, maybe.
