I now work as a solo songwriter/singer using my home studio. After spending many years doing the band thing, I wanted to try my hand at it alone with the occasional helping hand from a friend or two.
Why this name?
It just follows my name.
Do you play live?
Now and again we reform the old band and do a gig for a special occasion. I haven`t performed solo yet.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It`s incredible that you can post your music on a site such as this and reach folks you would never been able to before. The "business" people no longer have it all and that`s a good thing. For me, it`s about sharing music and feedback to learn more --to grow. Internet has made it happen.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I`m more interested in writing/publishing aspects---getting my stuff heard ---maybe get something picked up by a real "pro".
Piano/keys is mostly my area:Billy Joel-Elton John-Mr. Ray Charles-The late/great Duke Ellington-Motown-BEATLES-Eagles-CSN&Y-etc.
I`ve been in some big and small cities and am better in less-crowded areas. Small-town boy, I guess. There is a wee pub in county Clare, Ireland in a place called Creagh. Walsh`s Pub has superb GUINESS and traditional music to die for.
