Hello and welcome to Nashville, California! NC is an inviting and inspirational town. I've lived here for about seventeen years, the only thing that matters to me here is to be able to write and make music. I don't live here year round, usually I Iive in other towns for short periods of time, pursuing what everybody else tries to achieve: adventure, love, financial gains, you know, the pursuit of Happiness.... (chuckle). What I usually encounter when chasing these lofty goals, is many twists and turns along the way. Like everyone else on this planet, things they don't always turn out the way you envision them. I should say they never turn out the way you envision them, so what do you do when that happens? Well for me, it's the fastest train back to NC to sort things out. Usually what happens when trying to make sense of it all, is that I will play my guitar to relax my mind, and like magic a chorus or verse comes out of nowhere. It's a very strange expierence, I'm always surprised every time it happens. So since I was given this gift, I decided to study the craft of songwriting, a very interesting endeavour to say the least. Every song is a learning experience. Where will it lead? How do I express the idea that's bouncing around in my brain, heart and soul to make people relate to the story? Not an easy task... just because the first draft might make sense to me, it's another story to make it relate to other people like yourself. In such a case, I might invite a another resident of NC to drop by to help me craft the song, then after working on the music and lyrics the best we can, it's off to that other Nashville destination to a couple industry heads. They, in turn, read and listen to the lyrics. For the most part, they are very honest on evaluations, they'll suggest how to make a song stronger, as well as any other helpful tips they feel will improve the appeal and marketability of the song. So, after rewrites on lyrics and sometimes music, I'll get the the thumbs up that this peculiar song has a strong presence. This process takes days, weeks and months of communication back and forth before the song is at it's full potential. So now that I've taken you on a bit of a side road, let's get back to what's here for you to listen to. There are several songs where you can listen to, And after that you have the option to purchase the song seperately on Itunes, or purchase the whole CD on Cdbaby. So thanks for stopping by NC for a visit I hope you like some of the songs!!
