Finding New Music

Finding New Music

I have an imagination that works constantly, from running fantasies about the amazing things I’d do if I won the lottery to imagining a bucket list item being fulfilled … like getting the chance to play the drums on stage with band I love, for a song… I regularly think about those choices in life that have taken me down the path I’m on, as in – what if I’d chosen something different? A writer, a chef, a military officer, a drummer, a detective, a radio host, a football coach, a winemaker… or, in this case, a music producer. 

Rule Number One for Songwriters

Rule Number One for Songwriters

I have one rule when it comes to a song that, when violated, instantly dictates that I will not like it. No matter the artist. No matter the genre.

With a sarcastic sense of humor, and many years of analysis, I will explain.
