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

Piano and guitar. I also play accordion but do not write songs on it.

What comes easier for you - words or music?

Both come easily. Words inspire music and music inspires words.

Do you imagine yourself or someone else performing your songs?

I write songs for me to perform, except the two songs I wrote that I plan on selling to Kenny Chesney for top dollar. Anyone have his number? I'm serious.

Are you interested in collaboration or finding a songwriting partner?

I would love to perform with other songwriters. I like adding vocal harmonies and playing instruments on other people's songs, and would love to find some other songwriters to do the same on mine. I am not interested in writing with other people though because writing is really too personal for me. Every time I have tried to co-write with people it ends up being a silly song. I very much enjoy arranging with a partner.

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

all of the above.


I am a singer/songwriter who plays guitar, piano and accordion. Aside from being a solo singer/songwriter, I am also in the band Bakelite 78 and have a blog about songwriting and creation called Year of Snakes.
