Have you performed in front of an audience?
I think I'm alive while I'm playing my guitar. I plink; therefore, I am???
Your musical influences
I've been enrolled in the BOB DYLAN School of Songwriting since 1963. Some people say I sound like TOM PETTY (who can sound a lot like Bob), but he's considerably younger than I am - so I guess he sounds like me. Like my blurb states ... "BOB DYLAN meets TOM PETTY, ERIC ANDERSEN, and WEIRD AL - in CHURCH" ... I'm in there somewhere.
What equipment do you use?
ZOOM 1044, TASCAM 2488, Cool Edit Pro, and industrial strength Antares AutoTune.
Anything else?
Looking for bands and A&R people who are looking for me. I write quality lyrics with the right mix of sound and sense, but my limited musicianship does not allow me to translate that quality to recordings very well. The right professionals are out there, I know, to help me achieve my one goal - to sign my first royalty check over to my father (still a roofer at 87). ** Amended on 11/14/08 ... my father passed away today, and a dream has died.
