Retired military solo artist; Tex/Americana/Folk singer/songwriter. 'Scratch' is my military handle and TexScratch a stage name just for the purpose of having a stage name, I suppose... Let's Talk Guild (LTG) guitar forum friends inspired many tunes and the inclination to purchase far too many Guild Guitars over the years...
Solo singer/songwriter until May 2012 collaboration to create 'SouthWesterly' with Florida recording artist, Dave Jacobs.

Folks at times refer to some of my music as melancholy/somber. I'll admit that to about 60% or so of the tunes I compose. We all have trials in life; I tend to write about mine as personal therapy. Many relate to special family members, friends or acquaintances.
