I started playing guitar at age 11. Self taught, took lessons for about 1/2 a year.. Started my first band when I was 15, Narrow View. We released a five cassette. After high school I started a band called Two Weeks. Like Narrow View we played around Washington state. Then I joined Small. This was 1991. We got signed by Mysophobic Records. We released two full length CDs. The Finished One and Jinx. We played tons of shows and had a pretty big fan base. We just did a twenty five year reunion show and 2000 people came. After Small there were a couple other bands , Old Friendly, The Young, and I'm currently in a band called Mad Ruby. We have an all-star lineup with seasoned musicians. We are getting ready to record a full length album.....also im I the middle of recording my first full length solo album. Called "Dead String Days". It's a concept record that tells my life story. I wrote the music and lyrics to everysong and the album is gonna have lots and lots of special guests.
Music to me isn't something I hear, it's something I feel, I crave, I can't imagine life without. It gives me the opportunity to say how I feel in a way that other people can relate . It gives me peace and happiness in a way I cannot explain.
My musical dream is to be able to make a living with my songs. To be able to write a song and have a couple thousand people sing along is a feeling that I need to keep working for. Like your first crack hit.
Releasing all the pattens that our government has a lock on for energy. It's a shame the way they only work for the top 1% when in fact we should be a democracy. What a f*cking joke.

You are never alone, there is always someone with the same experiences.
I don't really listen to music that's new.
So far it's a cool idea.
Being broke. Finding good singers.
Yes, besides going to shows, throwing shows as well.
If I knew I wouldn't be on here.
