About
I write music and lyrics, but I feel pretty shaky in the lyric department, so I'd love to find a compatible lyricist. We could also collaborate on melodies. I'm old enough to qualify for senior discounts in some places, so I tend to be a bit old-fashioned in what I like to write. In other words, no rap, hip-hop, metal, grunge, electronica, etc. Having said that, I am open to new ideas. I am affiliated with BMI.
