Welcome to my Muse-ical world!
I am a Songwriter/Vocalist who creates original music using my Yamaha keyboard,
Garageband, various percussion instruments and loops.
Am currently seeking band members to work on originals and copy tunes.
Would like a variety band: Country, classic Rock, Pop, Oldies, newies,
Blues, Jazz. But am open to suggestion...
These are a few talented musicians who have contributed to some of my music.
Bill Craig: Guitar, Vocals/songwriter
Will Jacobs: Keys, piano, guitar, Vocals/songwriter
J.R. Richardson: Guitar, drums, Vocals/songwriter
(Am also currently working with many Wonderfully Talented musicians on Kompoz.com)
I have played with many bands over the years.
In Prescott, Ariz. I played with the Leroy B. Band ( four piece, Bluegrass/Country) at the Bird Cage Saloon on Whiskey Row.
Also played and recorded original music with several excellent musicians in many living room groups. (I wonder where they are today)?
When I moved back to Tx. (where I was born) in the mid-80's,
I worked with the band 'Flashback' in Dallas for four years.
It was a Variety band, six piece group, (Country/Soul/50's-60's-70's-80'smusic) with an excellent Elvis-Pelvis impersonator, Gary Ladell.
Did some studio demo work for our band and others.
Then in '89 I moved to Amarillo and sang with the band
Went to Nashville to plug some songs in '90, (Yes, I tried).
Moved back to the Weatherford, Tx. area in '92 and pursued my music through the FWSA.
Am still followin' the dream wherever it leads..... I love music!
When I lived in the Ft. Worth area I did open mic nights
at the Rig & The White Elephant Saloon, and was a member of the FWSA. I love performing with a band more than I do as a single (safety in #'s I guess) but have and will perform as a single if the opportunity arises.
Every performance is special to me and I look forward to the next. I love interacting with an audience.
If they enjoy my music it makes all my efforts worthwhile.
Olivia Newton-John, Joni Mitchell, Emmy Lou, Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, Fleetwood Mac(Stevie), Beatles, Stones, Eagles, Grace Slick, Heart, & many more.
Country, Bluegrass, Folk, Pop, Rock, Blues, Jazz, R/B.
I use a Yamaha Keyboard to come up with rhythms for melodies.
Using GarageBand 9 for creating the music
with the help of various loops here and there.
Sterling Audio Mic, Boss drum machine, percussion instruments.
Have also added a PreSonus Firebox interface and two Rokit studio speakers.
Just want to play original music, (although I will sing copy tunes.) It's the difference between looking at photos from someone else's vacation or making your own memories.
