About
In the 70s and 80s I wrote the music (including vocal melodies) for several dozen guitar and piano folk, pop and rock songs (with occasional classical music influences - I used to play classical violin). I've also written a few songs since the 80s. I'm looking for lyricists, guitarists, and/or keyboard players in the Silicon Valley (Palo Alto, Mountain View, Los Altos, Menlo Park, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, San Jose) to collaborate on songs with.

I should mention that those are two of my "sappiest" songs. I also have quite a few more "folkish" and "rockish" songs which I'm hoping to start having recorded next.
