Hello! I'm very glad you stopped in to listen and visit. :)
The message I carry is simply this...Jesus loves you and I do too.

Hope you enjoy what you hear, and get a blessing from the music, as God does not give His people gifts to just set them upon the shelf, and never be used.
I'm only as good as the Lord helps me to be, and I'm thankful for the blessings He has bestowed upon me.

I'm NOT perfect, never claimed to be; but on the other hand, I have a message to minister in song, and I do that to the best of my ability.

I fully realize there are many songs I demo here that don't fit my style/voice, but I can't run out and get a singer that fits everytime I write a song. :)

What I write or cover comes from the heart. I've endured many hard trials in my life, and each one has, in one way or the other made its way into a song that others can relate to.
All of my songs except for noted exceptions are free downloads. I'm not a professional by any means, nor am I interested in becoming one; and so the music is given away just as freely as the message was given to me.

How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I think it allows you to reach more people in a way you couldn't otherwise.

I've been contacted by people from all over the world that have been kind enough to listen to my music, and I have made many dear friends through music and the internet.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
As a songwriter, yes, but not as an artist. I'm content with my career as it stands now, and content to write and release the songs on the internet ......the message is more important than the money, and I have everything I need; wanting for nothing. :)

It is always my hope that you will carry away a blessing from the lyrics, never mind the singing. :)
Band History:
I have been writing, arranging music and singing for a number of years. I do arrangements for other people's music from time to time.
Your influences?
I've been told that I sound like Karen Carpenter and Amy Grant, but I don't try to sing like them.
I'm a mixture of Southern Gospel, Contemporary Christian, and Country Christian Music, with a few secular songs thrown in for good measure, as there are as many messages in those as the Christian music. :)
You'll hear piano, strings, brass and all kinds of orchestral stuff; as well as guitar licks/playing that was kindly added in several of my collaborations here.
My music is definitely different...I use what sounds right to me..some of it sounds like professional licks..but some is just plain original...this is really what music is all about.....originality. :D
Equipment used:
I do all my own studio/pre and post production work using Cakewalk Sonar 8; for my music tracks I use a Yamaha Motif 6 keyboard.
