I'm on My Way
When people ask me what my music sounds like, I always have a hard time answering. Others have described it as peaceful, uplifting, romantic, melodic, pop, country, rock, jazz, new age, island and, in some cases, dark. Whatever. I write about my romances, my feelings, and my view on the things I see around me. My music is also about my voice and my guitar playing. I listened mostly to Nat King Cole, Little Richard, and James Brown, so vocally, of course, I sing like a smooth, black madman. Guitar-wise ... well, let's say I have my own style. I'm Liberace on my right hand - Mr. Arpeggio Folkpick. I change chords quickly, pick quickly, and sing high and clear. When I hear a song that I like, I learn how to play it. Guitar? I've learned from (ripped off) every one of the thousands of other guitarists I've met and haven't met. You might call me a street musician - I was a busker in Amsterdam - but if you do, please consider the gutter my mind usually inhabits. The highest compliment anyone can pay me is to tell me that I'm a great singer. After more than 30 years of singing and playing in rock bands and quietly crooning at parties and restaurants, hopefully my sound has evolved into something that will make me into a living God, multimillionaire, humanistic rock star. Anyway, I get off on playing, so who cares?
