BIO:

My roots are from cape Town South Africa where I was born and

raised. At 17yrs I packed my bags and started to travel the globe. I

have lived worked and played in life, and find my solitude in

writing songs and sharing with others. After travelling for so long

I have found life is about the journey, not the distination. And

feeling like you are going nowhere right where you need to be.

Life is my teacher, the world my oyster, and all else is love

inbetween. My goal know is to make a cd that effects the vibrations

of people to a place of emotional movement and reflection.

“It’s More Than The Music”

By Rizzo

Recently, I was talking with a band about “sellable music.” “We want to make money but we don’t want to be commercial,” they said. “We make music our way in our bassist’s home studio. It really lets us take our time to make music that expresses who we are.” “So are you getting any attention or making enough money?” I asked. “No,” they chuckled. “We all have day jobs but gig when we can and we know that hard work pays off.” They were amazed at how I had made a living in music for 20 years and wanted me to hear their music. So they gave me a CD, a link to their MySpace and went on their way. I checked it out later. Their music was good, they had creativity and drive, maybe even the potential to be great. But it was not “sellable music”.

As I work with musicians, songwriters, budding composers, artists and bands, I find that most aren’t making music that strangers pay any sustained attention to. Instead of sellable music, it’s forgettable music that lacks lingering qualities and ultimately doesn’t matter to the world.'
