spring newsletter 2014

Posted on April 19, 2014
Happy Spring, Everyone!And, with this coming Sunday being Easter, Happy early Resurrection Sunday to all....I'll be celebrating with my family and we usually go to this fabulous Indian restaurant...one reason is because they're usually not too crowded on Easter and as I said, the food is really wonderful and puts a little zing in your step with their somewhat spicy buffet!Hope all of you are doing really well...and for those of you who are navigating through heavy Spring pollen, this too shall pass....so I keep telling myself.So, on to some fun news I thought I would share with you guys....There is an international music website (http://www.jamendo.com) where podcasters and radio stations often go to get "royalty-free" music to play which allows the artists/bands to receive extra amounts of exposure throughout the world, so basically it's a "win win" situation for everyone involved. I have no idea HOW this happened, but my song "Awakening" hit #1 on Jamendo's Top 10 All Genres out of over [...]

christmas newsletter 2013

Posted on December 1, 2013
Hi all--
I sure hope this finds everyone doing well and enjoying everything this wonderful season brings. If you're anything like me, you've already begun spinning Christmas CDs (or going through your Christmas playlists on your ipod). I tend to be a bit old school, and I guess I'm not the only one since vinyl records are now making a comeback.
Some of you may have noticed that I have been MIA....missing in action. I sort of fell off the face of the earth awhile back, and truth be told, I've actually been living under a rock for quite some time. In 2007, I was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease and have been rather preoccupied with doing treatments for that. Thankfully, I am seeing better days and just beginning to start focusing on music again. I've really missed it…playing guitar, writing songs, playing out...and I've missed getting to reach out to you!
To make up for lost time, I thought for fun I would share some random trivia about myself. So, for your entertainment--

while there have been many things that have tried to silence me,
stop my heart from ever restarting again,
yank me from this life and throw me on into the next prematurely....

there has long been a sense of destiny
protected deep down inside every fiber of my being.
a knowing that i better be present and ready, listening and right on cue,
for when my turn comes to play my part in history,
in this ongoing symphony that began when God, the Orchestrator,
lifted His hands and released time and sound as we know it.

don't for a minute believe there wasn't a part,
a meaningful musical measure written out for you to play...
--there is. all you have to do is show up.
the only instrument needed and necessary is an attuned heart.

on songwriting.

as a songwriter, there is nothing like the thrill you feel as a song begins to unravel itself and begins to reveal what's potentially there to find and flesh out--and once you begin to feel it going into a full gallop...where it seems to just go into auto-pilot and overdrive...it's such an exhilarating ride! even if you know not where it may take you....
