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

Guitar, naturally.

What comes easier for you - words or music?

Music first, usually, than the words. Don't know how Elton John and Bernie Taupin did it the other way so well.

Do you imagine yourself or someone else performing your songs?

Myself though its always such a compliment and kick to hear others do my songs.

Are you interested in collaboration or finding a songwriting partner?


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

It's really about finding a community, and, I could definitely make more time for recording and creating a better web presence. I usually record at home on a Mac / Logic set up. Sharing songs and playin for a listening audience is my first focus.


Just relocated with the family to Seattle from Sacramento / Bay Area. I got a whole bunch of original tunes and enjoy playing and performing and would like to find others that know the pleasure and pain of this lifestyle.

What Oliver R. is saying about this Meetup Group

So far so good. Impressed with the breadth of opportunity and organization. The more i attend the more connections and sense of community I get out of it.
