Writing songs for about 30 years now. I write mostly for my band, and for myself. I write mostly country, folk, bluegrass, or Americana genres, but I like challenges so if an opportunity for pop, rock, metal comes up, I am open to those genres as well. I play guitar, mandolin, and banjo. Been looking to change my current non musical career to one more based in songwriting. I love creating melodies, and chord progressions. I have written about 200 songs, and have at least that many more unfinished. Looking for lyricists and poets more than melody writers, but always up for an opportunity to co write!
