About
My goal is to write songs that I am proud of and that may be picked up by another artist. There was a time when I wanted to break into pop music as an artist myself, and I spent several years working on that goal. It was a fabulous time in my life. Although I am no longer pursuing this dream, I still sing. I still perform. And I've always worked really well with musicians in writing songs. I have several song concepts I've written lyrics and a melody for, and have a pretty good vision for what the song should sound like and achieve. Today I am interested in writing in the folk/rock/pop styles I grew up with, and I'm drawing on those influences. I've also worked with a music track and provided the vocal melody and lyrics. I perform live now in the NY & CT area, and would love to bring some original music into the show, but that is not my primary goal here.

Lyrics

Nobody Can Win   Verse 1: Your eyes looking to the sky Do you see me Do you see me die this first death and get up again die a little death and here I am Your words are suppressed within Confession rises Somewhere inside of the din Feel the bones break ins

Verse 1 Everything is spinning and you can’t sit still The odds have you winning There’s an empty cage to fill Fingers curling 'round the windowsill Everything’s for sale   Remember when the other children  Broke your red balloon And you forgot the secret

Home is You (A Soldier's Song) You are the water When I’m thirsty for rain You are the medicine When I’m racked with pain You are the sun  When I can't see the sky You are the answer When the reason is lost And no one knows why   And I keep running home to

Nobody Can Win Mix 3
This song was inspired by someone I used to know who seemed to suck the soul out of me. Albeit upbeat, I envisioned this song to render dark, similar to Lykke Li's "I Follow Rivers", with sort of a Depeche Mode sound. This rendition is a little closer to pop/dance. Would love to revamp into a darker sound.
