It's Whats Inside That Counts
There are only 10 songs listed on the outside cover, but there are 20 songs on the disc...the rest are listed inside. BIO: I have been playing in the Fort Wayne, Indiana area and surrounding region venues and festivals for the last 25 years. It has been my pleasure to play with many talented people in bands that have performed a wide variety of music. (I was also the primary writer in the instrumental acoustic quartet 'Point of Departure' which has to this date released four CDs, the latter 'Gypsy Heart' is available through cdbaby also.) As a part of all these entities I have had the good fortune to be an opener for acts as diverse as Merle Saunders, Bill Miller, Guggenheim Grotto and Kaki King. During all those years I have steadily compiled and performed my own catalogue of original songs. 'It's what's inside that counts...' is the synthesis of 25 years of songwriting, many musical experiences, a wonderful collection of fine musical talent who gave unconditionally, excellent recording engineering, and incidents which can only be described as being arranged by a higher source of inspiration. While they contain primarily an acoustic guitar or piano as a central instrument, the recordings contain a wide variety of instrumentation including upright bass, cello, flute and oboe as well as marimba, steel drums, hand percussion and, of course, electric guitars. These 20 songs also reflect an exposure to many musical categories (rock, pop, reggae, etc.) but seem, at least for me, to defy narrowing style descriptions as individual pieces. Maybe that's a good thing. While the lyric content does not deny that the world can be a dark place the ultimate feeling generated is spiritual and positive. Hope you find something here you like. My work continues to evolve as I am currently investigating world rhythms. Please send me an e-mail and let me know you're out there and what you like. email@example.com.
