When I was twelve, at the county fair I saw a little girl playing a Dobro.The sound of those sweet strings has never left my dreams.
I love all guitars and the sounds they make. I have been playing and writing songs for about 35 years. Most of my adult life I've been an artist and or illustrator, but I've never stopped playing. I hope someday to make music for TV or movies. Right now I'm just having fun recording songs in my living room, and uploading them to broadjam.com, and performing around the bay area.
Thanks to Broadjam for giving me a place to share my music.
To everybody who reviewed my songs, good or bad, Thank You. Taking the time to share your thoughts and ideas means alot to me and I value all comments.
It's nice to know that someone hears my music besides me and my cat.
