I am a fan of the Beatles, Fogelberg, Raspberries, Badfinger, Moody Blues, solo Beatles, Eagles. Any music that has solid vocals, good harmonies and a hook!
I also am developing a fascination with old jazz standards. I am self taught on everything I play which explains my limitations. LOL! Up until a few years ago I was all accoustic all the time and did very little recording on an old 4 trak. I had written a lot of songs over the years on my accoustic most of those are not here as I started using the computer to record and wanting a more electric sound so out came an electric guitar, then I wanted a beat so the cheap drum machine came next, then I needed a bottom so the cheap bass was bought, then my drums sucked so I needed loops. Then I wanted some strings/sax so my keyboard was bought. Well you know the drill the more you get the more you want and songs that took 3 hours now take 3 days. And so my one man 6th grade band was born.
I have put samples of the music I have written here on this website. I use drum loops and all other instruments are live Course you probably can tell that, LOL). Anyway as Harry Chapin's Mr. Tanner would say music is my life not my livelihood. I have met some great artists on SC and continue to hear great artists on SC. Click on the stations link to find Soundclick Radio stations where my music is playing. My music playing on these stations has been a pleasant surprise as these stations are filled with great musicians. I have also had the opportunity to collaborate with some very good musicians here on SC. My brother Jim, Svenni Bjorgvins, Juri Rosenfeld, Johnny Proctor, His Masters Choice, DeAnn Sanders, Dawn Sinclair and most recently Dawn Diamond. I am very grateful to all these artists for helping me to have more fun than should be allowed for free. Writing/recording/producing music I find to be very rewarding. I am learning so much everyday about every facet. The exposure to so many great musicians has really helped me evolve as well.
Well if you are still awake thanks for coming by.

LONG! I am old. Although my One Man band is only about 4-5 years as I was all accoustic all the time for most of my life.
Sometimes it is hard to tell.
Beatles, Classic Rock, Accoustic Rock, I enjoy listening to the old standards. But if it wasnt for John and Paul I would not be writing this now.
New 2016: Taylor 810CE Accoustic New 2007: MARTIN D35 I love this guitar! All new 2006 : Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty, Fender Mexican Fat Strat, Breedlove D25/SM, G&L Legacy 2000 Bass, Yamaha DGX660 keyboard. Acoustic only on You got it all by the Breedlove the rest are Aria Accoustic, SG Clone Electric, Yamaha Keyboard, Sonar studio with a Soundblaster Audigy 24 bit car and new line6 Toneport UX1. I use TRACKS for final mastering. NEWSFLASH new equipment not on any recorded tracks yet:
Breedlove D25/SM electric/Accoustic love it might be the best guitar on the planet for the price.
NEW!!!! New 1/2008 a Presonus Firepod for recording retires the toneport and can be heard on With the Leader of the Band. So far I am very pleased with the sound quality on the presonus and it was a breeze to install. Beware however of onboard firewire ports on Dells.
So finally some decent equipment.
And of course still have my old Aria Accoustic and SG Clone electric which is what you are mostly hearing on my tracks.
I am a one man band and the good news is my band will never break up. The bad news is my band will never break up.
