NEWS New song posted! "Won't Fool Me". Thanks to Gina Vantuno, Marie Wheeler , and my wife Bridie Sheahan for contributing their talent and beautiful voices on background vocals! Hope you like it!
What band? I am the band! Hi -I AM the band. This is the introduction to my band! Check out the music. See if you like it. If you don't, thanks for giving me a listen anyway. I have been trying to finish a compilation of my music for years. I am just starting to actually finish recording songs. I have been a hermit , just writing and recording for about 20 years... no kidding.I'm doing everything myself for the most part so it takes longer. The songs are written, most even 90% finished, but life gets in the way.... and my family will never say I wasn't around for them. But before I die, I want to make sure I can leave them with the truest part of me. Not to mention prove to myself what I have always felt I could accomplish.
Why this name?
It's my name! I was going to come up with a flashy name like "Daddy Long leg" or "Chill E DOG" but ...
Do you play live?
I have played live, but I enjoy recording more, and would have to find willing musicians to help me play my music the way I would want it to be heard live.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It makes record companies sweat and recording studios work more in the digital forum. It gives everyone a chance to show what they can do.Not all great musicains get record contracts or even make a living from music... You hear me? I'm freak'in GREAT!! GREAT!! lol!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Make me rich without shaking me down too badly and I'll consider it. Or better yet , just give me a comfortable living making music . Seriously , I'd need a very expensive and experienced lawyer to read how much they would want to jip me before I'd sign anything!
Beatles, Elton John, Jimi Hendrix, Tears for Fears, 70's and 80's music for sure too! I have 8000 songs on my IPOD with everything from Frank Sinatra , Led Zep, to Danny Kaye....How can I accurately answer that? I can say that above all the Beatles are behind it all.
My wife's family's farm in Ireland at about 5:30 Am in the summer. Talking a walk through the fields as the sun comes up is like visiting God for a chat.
