About
I have been writing songs since I was a kid, and have been playing guitar, keyboards, and a few other instruments since my early teens. Led and played in various bands. Studied music composition at SUNY Fredonia. I've had a couple collaborators in the past, but nothing too extensive. I am very private when it comes to writing, but I am looking to break out of that shell and open up to other writers. What I'd really like to find is a lyricist that can put words to my music, or let me put music to their words. Musically, I draw from early rock and roll and soul. I love strong melodies and unusual chord changes. I like old country too. It typically comes out like a power-pop/Americana hybrid. I appreciate wordplay and puns, but I do not consider myself a strong or prolific lyricist. However, when I have a good lyric to work with, it usually lends itself to a good tune. One thing I am really strong with is developing ideas (riffs, chord changes, melody fragments) into something more complete.
