About
I have been writing songs and bits of songs for about 43 years, mostly on my own. I have collaborated with friends before, and it can be fun, but it can be exhausting as well when things get moving fast and ideas start flying from all angles. I'm looking for someone that wants to have fun with music, with all kinds of genres. It isn't often I just come up with a song all at once, although I have been lucky on a few. Usually, I have a riff I build on, and eventually it comes out a song. I'm looking for people that can take my writing in new and fun directions. I am not a professional musician, but I get by on bass, guitar and uke. I can plunk a keyboard and bang a drum. I have a very loyal but limited fan base, my family and friends. I write for fun, entered a few contests but never won. I am not looking to be famous, or rich, but to have someone play a song that I helped with would be exciting! Looking forward to making some awesome music!
