What instrument(s) do you use to write your music?

I write using keyboards or piano, but I hear my music with a band.

What comes easier for you - words or music?

Words and music tend to arrive at the same time. My writing process is very moodling. Some people think I look like I am napping when I write. This is not true.

Do you imagine yourself or someone else performing your songs?

I need to do my own songs. They are my songs. I need other musician to help flesh out and support my music. Eventually, I will need a recording person (producer?) and potentially a nice, ethical music business person (manager). I have played in a lot of bands and I am a veteran improviser. In terms of collaborating, I love to play around with arranging, improv and instrumentation.

Are you interested in collaboration or finding a songwriting partner?

My writing process is very interior - I write alone. I practice my songs enough to be able to perform them solo. Then I bring other musicians in to the structures I have created, into the bones of the songs. There is room to tinker and add to and explore the music after the initial writing phase. I like playing with other musicians. I am going to need people who have additional skill sets - like recording, producing, and artist management.

What areas of your music experience are you wanting to improve? e.g. songwriting, marketing, networking, recording, airplay, gigs, etc.

I think recording, marketing, and gigs are all part of this next phase for my music.

Introduction

Hi! I write and sing my own music, and I play piano/keyboards. I write pretty faithfully, and I have started to rehearse regularly with other musicians - I am forming a band. I play open mics regularly. Goal for the year: begin to record my songs.
