I'm a one woman band.
My motto is "Keep It Simple "..:)
I've always had a special level of admiration for the singer-songwriter. Not knocking those who perform only. But, I feel if you can actually write your own melody and words onto a page; then that's what hooks me as a listener. Rodgers and Hart (and Hammerstien), King and Goffen, Weil and Mann, Lennon and McCartney, John and Taupin, Holland-Dozier-Holland, and so many other pairings in the musical sphere have been so influential to me over the years. And, that is both in music and poetry.
Now, from that side of the ledger, I turn to jazz, country, soul, folk, funk, classical, baroque, heavy metal, thrash, punk, electronica, dance, salsa, rockabilly, ballads, broadway, opera, hip-hop, Gil Scott-Heron, The Last Poets, new age, and SO many others....(too many to list here)
Pen, paper, computer, voice......BRAIN...
I guess all I would have to say in closing is something that goes back to the dedication I made for "The Over My Head Soundtrack", which suits best what I'd like to express to anyone who sees my work here.
"I dedicate this work to all who find their own path in this world". - A.H. Scott
And, to everybody who has a dream of making something blossom in this world, I leave you with this :
"If you can dream it, you can feel it. If you can feel it, then your dream is coming true." - A.H. Scott
PEACE & RESPECT TO ONE AND ALL
