I am an accomplished singer/songwriter fortunate enough to have a full time job, a loving and supportive family, and a musical excuse to sometimes pack them up and hit the road for the odd weekend getaway. As with most artists, costs outweigh what little revenue there is. If it were only about that, one might wonder why I continue. But it's not about that.
It's about the smiles on the kids faces when I do Christmas concerts at the school. It's about using my talents to help those less fortunate. It's about helping people either deal with or forget their woes even for a short while.
It's about being the soundtrack playing in the background as two lovers share the deepest gaze and the most meaningful of moments. It's about turning on a radio and hearing your words coming back at you and the surreal feeling that ensues. It's about the beauty of the stringed instrument, the passion of the human voice and just how intoxicating the two are together.
