I've written & recorded (or had recorded) approx. 500 country songs, with 12 albums on CD Baby. As a member of NSAI, many of my songs have been evaluated by various evaluators, some with very positive thoughts about my lyrics, but with a common comment that my melodies are "back in the 1980's". Looking for a top notch musician with talent for the contemporary country or pop sound of today. Additionally, I am the owner of Diamondback Records, a country music compilation service, providing airplay for independent songwriters & artists by sending our compilations to about 500 DJs in Europe, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada & independent US radio. http://www.diamondback-records.com
