I'm just a red blood, blue collar, son of the working class. I work hard. I raise babies. I pay bills. I make music. Just like everyone else.
Music is the lifeblood and the vessel. Know music, know life. No music, no life.
I want to write, record and produce music for film. I want to produce other artists. I want to share my music with anyone and everyone who feels the same way about music as I do.
I'd get rid of money.

We are all in this thing together. Like it, or not.
I think in music, like in every other capitalist business setting known to man, there are those in control, there are those out of control. The trick is in perception.
We'll see. It's early yet.
Not being talented enough or able to translate what I hear in my head.
EMPHATICALLY, YES! I frequent local venues and support local artists. It is ground zero. Everything builds from there. Nationally touring acts pick and choose their destinations, based upon support of the arts and music, whether they admit it not. Everything begins and ends with local support.
Just be humble. Be honest with yourself and with your perspective audience. In the long run, fakes fade away, but the real ones never burn out,
