Sleep Depravation
Odd harmony, unsettling lyrics, straightforward melody, and the best I could do on the guitar.
I specialize in genre blending, and retro rock. I workedwith my son Timothy to develop some new and exciting mixes. Tim accompanied me in :There's Nothing New Under the Sun", Instruments in "Corporate World, and the arrangement and instruments in "The Evil Eye". Timothy is a unique guitarist and pianist. I have been stuck in a work cycle for a couple of years that have not been conducive to developing more material. I have some time off coming up so maybe I will take the opportunity to do so. A sampling of my most recent works of Instrumentals, Vocalizations, and Synthesis is available on my music page. Whatever the heck it is I'm doing right (or wrong) let me know... Life is lonely at the bottom. I am a porch musician. I have never played for income although it would be nice. I play a wide variety of mixtures of folk, rock, blues, and ethnic music. I am not a guitarist who sings, I am a vocalist and songwriter who plays guitar. I've been a singer all my life, for a half century, and played various instruments almost as long. I don't pay much attention to popular music trends, I'm kind of on my own path. Some people like most of it, most people like some of it. It's worth going through my tunes to see what I've got because of the wide variety. Drop me a comment. I use suggestions in new works and sometimes rework my old stuff if I get reasonable feedback. Thanks for stopping by. If no one shows interest there isn't much incentive to keep on posting the new works. Fred
Band/artist history
Just me, with accompaniment by one of my sons, or a friend. I recorded most of my stuff on my computer by myself. I'm a sound geek so it comes out pretty good. Like I said, I'm a vocalist. I put a lot into harmonies and layering.

I use a RS Concertmate keyboard for keys and preset drums. I used to wish I had a drummer. I had to take matters into my own hands
