I've been writing since I was 15 or 16. Back then the lyrics were mostly parodies on top 40 songs and TV commercials. Thinking about it now, that was probably one of the most important things I did in terms of learning how to write songs. I didn't really start writing my own songs until I was about 18 under the influence of Willie, Waylon, Marty Robbins, Buck Owens, Elvis (early), Johnny Mathis, Ian Anderson, Free (Paul Rodgers), 70s Eagles, Allman Brothers, Skynyrd, and God knows who else. The first song I ever wrote, back in 1972, is posted here (Bless My Forty Four). I've taken a shot at playing just about anything you can play in a band but stuck with guitar.
I wrote all the music and lyrics to the songs posted here; but the performance music/vocals, production and engineering were put together by some of the best talent in Nashville. Hope you enjoy the tunes and that you'll stop by and let me know what you think.
