Formerly "Dr. C and the Stratocats," I'm now on a solo career as "Dr. C," but I had to change my stage name here because someone else had already claimed it. My music strives for melody above all else; I strive to make my songs memorable, so you can whistle a tune immediately. I see melody as the element most lacking in contemporaryr music. I love Sinatra and the Beatles, Gordon Lightfoot, Paul Simon, anyone who can write a memorable "tune."
Why this name?
I'm a family doctor and my last name was to cumbersome, so I shortened it to the initial.
Do you play live?
Yes, on occasion, especially for benefits in Mendocino County, CA, though I'd be willling to play farther south.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Rejuvenates it through technological egalitarianism.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Begun in San Clemente in the 1980s, Dr. C and the Stratocats disbanded in the late 90s for various reasons, the main being that we needed better means to put food on the table.
I already mentioned them. Think melody!
