Going to Jamaica
'JUST ME' Good Morning! This is the phrase I use to greet people, morning, noon and night. I'm Joe D. Taylor. My first "demo" CD was completed in a little home studio in Green Island, Jamaica, June 2008. Why Jamaica you ask? I played in a "rock" band several years ago. I wrote a few songs, but not seriously. We played in a three state area around the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. Yes, I was born between two rivers a long, long time ago! Sounds like a song title-doesn't it? Several years later my wife and I went on vacation to Jamaica. I was in the piano bar every night and became good friends with the piano man. I kept telling him that I use to play and write music. But, basically I was embarrassed because I had nothing to show him. So, I went home and wrote a few songs. The next year I sang them for him. Over the following year I wrote several more; some bluesy; some ballads; about love of family; about my dog; friends in my life; events of the times; small town boy. They are all just me! My goal-Elvis hear my songs-love them and want to record one. Okay, so Elvis is dead-I know. But, someone else just might like my songs. Later.................Joe D. Taylor.
