I am currently listening to "A Path Less Traveled" by Morris Kee (Ourstage). I feel as if I am in the company of the Arlo Guthrie and Bob Dylan. The lyrics are an inspiration. The melody flows right to my spirit. I will be back for more enlightenment and musical pleasure.
Born, and bred on the banks of the mighty Mississippi in Memphis Tenn. I was raised on great music. Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Waylon Jennings, and all the others that recorded at Sun Studio's down on Beal St. just a quarter mile from the river banks, Growing up singing to my mothers records, and pretending I was a star.I have loved music my whole life. I Learned to play the drums at age 10. I was a night club DJ for most of my 20's. In my 30's I got Clean and sober. In my late 30's I had a band in South Texas.In 1997 I started "The Catus Rose Band" and we played the San Antonio clubs for 3 years. In 1998 We changed the name of the band to "No Angels" along with some personel. In 1997 I was in a wreck and hurt my back' and bought a guitar. I learned to play a little downloading tabs from Olga. I started writing songs not long after that. I'm a songwriter, and composer, and drummer. About a year ago I bought a bass and have been learnig to play that a little at a time. I am not a great musician but I keep playing and always will because it is what I Love the most. Recently I bought the things I needed to record my stuff in my own home. I currently have 8 songs recorded though the recording process is a learning exsperience and the first ones were a little rough. I made mistakes and hopefully I have learned from them and the later projects are of better quality. I write mostly rock n roll. I try to put my emphasis the words. the story if you will. Some one said write about what you know about. Well my stories are about me and whats happened to me in the past. My melodies are composed on the Gibson acoustic and are from the heart. I cant sing very good so hopefully people who listen to my songs will judge them by any other measure than vocals. I am not a singer as far as I am concerned but I have a gift and I keep on compossing songs.I am the only one playing on my recordings, I play all instruments you will hear and do all the vocals I have no outside help at all. Some of my songs are rather main stream and some are not. Some are R+B, and some are Gospel rock. I love both. I hope the songs I contribute will be liked it is for the people I give my music to that I do this for. God Love You All.
