Long hard road

And anyone who is a real musician knows exactly what I am talking about. This is not a business for the meek and is usually supplemented with another job. Anyway, I actually started my musical career at the age of 12, singing in a rock band. Have been in bands ever since. I started writing seriously at about 17, when I got my first piano. Along the way, I have taught myself how to produce recordings, engineer, arrange..etc. I spent 4 years in Las Vegas Show groups and that was quite an experience. Learned a lot. Moved back to upstate New York where I now reside. I spent a year traveling with the Drifters (of Under the Boardwalk fame) and wrote a song for them, which I have uploaded on this site. "Back to the Boardwalk." That was great year! I am currently performing with 2 local bands doing the club thing (Hey, I have to eat!) but mostly I spend my time composing and recording. My ultimate goal is to break into TV and films and write with that in mind. If you listen to my music, you will hear how well-suited my music is for that. Love to network with other musicians and hear their work. My main instrument is the saxophone and I necessarily had to learn to play keyboards and guitar but still call in "real" players when I need a sophisticated part or solo. I love this business and I hate this business. But I decided long ago, this is what I am meant to do.
