Howdy ya'll - I grew up listening to Mowtown as a child, then turned to Rock & Roll in the 70's. I bought my first guitar when I was 17, bright-eyed & bushy-tailed. I hammered away on that 70 Hardtail Stratocaster every moment I could. I can still hear my parents stomping on the floor above me.. "turn that down!!" In the early 80's came to faith in Christ. I joined my first "real band" called Crucifix. A Christian Heavy Metal power trio. We played & toured together until about 1992 and have remained close friends throughout our lives. I spent a several years wandering and about 7 years ago (like the prodigal son) found my way back where I belong, in Christ. I've spent these last years reflecting on things and began writing again. I look forward to sharing my music and bringing encouragement to you through song. Oh BTW my first grandson coined the name Papa Chicken .. now all the grandchildren call me Papa Chicken... so that's how I got the name.
An expression of the heart, that gives me joy to share with others.
That just one person will be inspired to believe & trust in Jesus Christ.
Revive the message to "treat others like you want to be treated. "
lol too many to pick from ;-)

How God through Christ could save a wretch like me.
The is hope and One who will never leave you or forsake you
I feel engaged in sharing the love of Christ through my music.
99% of us struggle to get through each day like everyone else; as we continually shape our musical ideas into songs. We all need a little help now and then. It would be nice to have a musical sanctuary where we can be ourselves without pretending.
I dunno I just got here.. ask me again in about a month. ;-)
The most frustrating thing as a musician has got to be the industry. All the cookie-cutter bands and songs that just keep getting recycled over and over.
I attend local shows and support local musicians.
~scratches my head~ prolly a big pocketbook LOL
The greatest unknown artist (that I've had the pleasure to share a friendship with for 35 years) is Scott Seymour. Amazingly talented guy who could play nearly any genera and nearly any instrument. - I miss him.
