Music is just something I do every day. I pick up guitar when I wake, playing out the dream I woke up to (before I forget it). My guitar is my closest relation. When I sing and play, either to myself, sharing with others or performing, I feel affirmatively connected to life's process.
The dream would be for me to be able to live entirely off of it, to develop and build indifferent to concerns about paying the rent and putting food on the table.
Sharing communal song and music.
What a wonderful world
Influences in my youth include Cat Stevens, Gordon Lightfoot, Leonard Cohen, and Bob Dylan much later on. My main influence as a child was listening to my Rocket Radio (a type of crystal radio) and tuning into late night classical music on a radio show called Classics til Dawn...listening with an earphone.
Any event inspires me to make music.
In the playing I want to convey my experience of that event, and if I'm sharing that with others, the experience of sharing harmony.
I feel at home with an audience, searching for inroads to resonance.,
The nowaday type of music that generally hits pop radio, I have difficulty accessing.
I don't think that I have as yet explored fully Drooble to accurately comment, as of yet.
I mix with various open-stage events sporadically.
