I play guitar and I have been composing music since I was sixteen years old. My influences range from British Invasion to American rock, punk and alternative. Musically I was blessed. My mother was into Mahalia Jackson and The Supremes etc. and My dad was into: The Impressions, Curtis, Sam and Dave, Joe Tex and The Temptations, among many of the great soul artists of the time. But my first true musical memory was sitting in a Mr. Donuts parking lot in 1965…(that made me six years old)… and on the radio (WRKO If I remember correctly came this song that sent shivers down my spine. The song was “Angie” by the Rolling Stones. And the rest is history from "The Doors" to "The Clash", "Bowie" to "The Talking Heads", "Led Zeppelin" to Nirvana and everything in between …I was hooked. My musical journey had begun!
Music to me is all about passion. Music and art show me the real true beauty of life.
To be able to play and compose music full-time as a career.
I would make all the world leaders listen to Elvis Costello's "What So Funny About Peace Love and Understanding".
Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, The Clash...and the list goes on and on.
Life is an interesting universe event.
Scared and excited.
Too much posing and following fads.
Really cool so far. I just started.
Streaming royalties are so low that it makes it hard to cover expenses.
Not as much as I would like.
Put out great music. If the musician likes it than in this large world someone else will too.
