About
I love to write lyrics - especially lyrics drawn on personal experience, observation, current events, behavioral health, life stories - REAL THINGS! I love to lay down very simple to very complex drum parts. I love putting bass lines just behind the beat. I love simple, melodic piano to accentuate lyrics (piano/vocal duets - YES!) I love to track and mix, without obtaining the "perfect" cut. If it's a little raw and edgy, you know it's real! Oh, and if your diggin' 3/4 time??? We're on the same page! My goals are simple... Seek out Artists who need help, and Artists who are compelled to help. I am, and have been a musical person for nearly 40 years (both in appreciation and creation). I believe all music is food for the soul of whoever created it, regardless of commercial success. It's an honor to receive glimpses into another's world. I thrive on collaboration, though I am a little more "limited" than I used to be. I've gone through a great amount of adjustment in the past 2 years, as a result of an automobile accident (spinal cord injury). I lost everything from the chest down, but still have about 65% of my right hand and 35% of my left. So I have basically one hand for any performance, though I use adaptive technologies. I believe a good song is never finished, and that there is no shame in ANY level of sharing, each to their own abilities.

MORE OF A POEM, BUT EASILY ADAPTED TO SONG LYRICS: In the grip of tortures, of my own making, Justly confined, myself forsaking,Thoughts of darkness, meant not to share,Will I come to know, to accept, or care? To the coward is life, the life of a foolI did

I hear some Steely Dan in here as well - clean and tight overall - are you a drummer primarily? Love the Fender Rhodes electric piano work (Bob James could claim that one!)

Very nice... The back-beat on drums would sound a little less overpwoering as a rim-shot

What key is this in? Your voice is very versatile and powerful. Great use of the range, vibrato, and expression. Only down side on this one is that I think you're "holdin' back" a little? Perhaps you'd find some inspiration here? https://soundcloud.com/justfrank42/life-goes-on-diane-schuur
