Welcome To My Site, I'm Glad That You're Here
The single release with my band GEQ is now available. Click on the cover art on the left and listen to the track and download "Nobody Knows I'm Here" from CDbaby right now. We've performed this tune for years, but I decided to record it "Big Band" style using low brass to make it "swing harder than ever!"
The business of composing music is where my head is right now. Hours in the studio, hours at my desk and hours just thinking about the hours in the studio and at my desk . . . yep, that's how my time is spent . . . not to mention the hours I spend writing my blogs about my work an about stuff in general.
It's all because I love what I'm doing. Putting into sounds, rhythms, harmonies and melodies, my life's experiences . . . painting pictures with sounds and causing reactions and generating feelings.
I continue to get better at this as I go along. It's a never ending battle of what sound I want to make . . . a sound with what rhythm or coupled with what other sound to form what harmony or followed by what other sound to make a melody?
Stuff I'm Doing Right Now
Artists will tell you that it's very difficult to create only one thing at a time. A painter's studio, for instance, may contain seven easels, each holding a canvass of a piece that he/she has started and is a "work in progress." I'm no different with my creations. A double drawer file cabinet full of file folders containing lead sheets and manuscript of scratched on notes and chord changes . . . work that I've started and then put aside, to elaborate on another idea. I do it over and over. I'm trying to finish one of those pieces of work . . . that's Stuff I'm Doing Right Now.

Stuff Coming Up
We're updating our calendar now. Stay tuned for postings of where I'll be next.
Also, I'm releasing a solo single later this summer. The ballad is a depiction of an adult women re-uniting with her childhood toy . . . a doll that she thought was gone forever, being left in the family home after many years. "I Waited For You" will be coming soon.
