Welcome to my Music Blog.
I’ve been a musician all my life. I’ve written songs for much of my life. Many of them silly, many of the bad. But some of them, not so silly, not so bad. My problem has always been that I never finish the songs. I learned about FAWM (http://fawm.org) last fall, and decided to take the challenge – write 14 songs in the 28 days of February.
At first, I hoped to complete 14 new songs. But as things progressed, I realized that what I really wanted to was to finish songs I had already started. As things went, I wrote two new songs, and finished two previously started songs. That was just fine with me. Perhaps more importantly, it pointed me in the right direction. Couple weeks into March, I sat down at the piano and wrote a song beginning to end that afternoon. I’ve already performed that song at an open mic night.
So this blog is my effort to direct that momentum. I’m going to try to post songs here intermittently as I finish them. My goal is not to publish highly polished studio recordings, but demo recordings that give a good sense of the intended sound. Your feedback will always be appreciated.
