I am well-educated and informed- extremely political a long- time anti-war- anti-oppression activist with a perspective on the Left- the manner by which music has impacted the movements that galvanized the sixties and civil rights protests. I haven't lost my edge and I enjoy Monk to Eminem.
I am looking for collaborators especially to help with melodies. The songs are bluesy. My favorites (I'm older than most I imagine) are John Prine, The Stones, Tom Waitts, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Eminem
Very uncertain- my personal goal is to have my songs finished up and played at fundraisers- I already have the Pinups for Pitbulls willing to perform some but I need to get the musicians and the music together.
I do not play music though I do sing.
I am very active in animal welfare here in Philly (actually just moved to Jersey) and I am also a writer not a musician- though musical. I write lyrics- looking for help with music about the plight of pits- however they're funny.
