About
I have been writing and recording songs for probably 30 years. I constantly have music streaming through my head and, to my wife's consternation, it is frequently vocalized. I believe my strength is writing songs, including melody, not lyric writing, although I have a few completed songs that I'm somewhat happy with. My songs frequently include lyrical ideas that are not completed. That's why I need a lyricist. I am 68 years old and my primary remaining goal is to be known as that old codger who wrote a billion selling song that baby boomers (and everyone else) buy so that I can provide my wife with a Tesla.
