I have been a Musician / Songwriter for about 15 years as a hobby for about 5 years. I write and record all of my own music, play all of the instruments. I had become tired of dealing with EGO-MANIACS in my bands, so I decided to eliminate that aspect of music in my life. I find that writing and recording has reached an all new high. It is much more satisfying when the music is for the music, and not the money or recognition. However, it is nice to let other people listen and hopefully relate to it.
