Thanks for adding my track, "Whiskey And Me", to your playlist. It's greatly appreciated. Glad you like the tune. Hope all is well. Although I'm in Scottsdale Arizona now, I spend time in Milwaukee also. I grew up going to my grandparents home in Shorewood Hills. So I know Madison well. :) Again, thanks. Take care.

Funny, my dad is retired in Scottsdale, and my whole Italian family lives there, so I come out once a year. I'm from Chicago, but my wife is from Madison, so of course, here we are. :) Love to co-write sometime, if you're into it. Cheers and thanks for your writing and inspiration. Len

Thanks Len! Small world the connection to Scottsdale, and Madison. I get why you're there. :-) But you know what, it's a great place. I grew up going to Wisconsin games. My dad played football up there in the 50s with ALLEN and meet you. It goes way back. So I have a really really really big connection to UW. And Madison. I would love to call write something with you. Let me know how you want to go forward. Lyrics? Melody? Whatever you think. I would definitely try it.

I'm comfortable with lyrics or melody/chord progressions. I write on keys, but don't have pro chops there, so my chords can easily translate to guitar, and usually have been written for acoustic in the past. I'm happy to try and compliment whatever you enjoy doing most. Are there any topics you've been wanting to write about? Maybe put it on the burners for May if you have any availability? I hope to wrap some projects by mid-May, but whatever your timeline looks like is fine. Thanks for considering John! Len
