I'm a former lead guitarist in L.A., Vegas, Nashville etc. who had to go mostly acoustic because of ear disease and hearing/pitch problems. Currently live in Vegas, originally from the Iowa-Illinois Quad-Cities, I've been a regular contributor to American Songwriter magazine in Nashville for the past decade as a music journalist. Have also written for numerous newspapers and worked in radio, but playing music is what keeps me alive (after Jesus that is). Check out my stuff on Spotiry and the usual outlets, and follow me on FB, Twitter, Instagram etc. I have an e-novel, Bringing In the Sheep, on Amazon. Thanks so much for reading this!
Music has basically helped keep me alive. In my best and worst times, she's been there. From Coltrane to Bill Monroe, Mozart to Zeppelin, I can't imagine what life would be without music.
For the songs on this site, and others, to be heard by the masses and used in movies, TV, be downloaded...to help raise the musical literacy, and vocabulary literacy, rate among the masses. I know, I'm an arrogant bastard. But I mean it.
