I play solo singer-songwriter stuff right now. I like Tom Waits, James Taylor, Leonard Cohen, Randy Newman, etc. I also am an unrepentant life-long Zappa freak. I have a set of songs I wrote. I continue to write. I have a bunch of hand-picked covers. I like songs which probe all aspects of life.
I play guitar in a finger picking style, piano (classical), could play some woodwinds if needed. My voice covers bass to baritone. I can sight read. I have my own recording facility set-up in my den.
I am interested in collaborating with other vocalists and instrumentalists who might want to work out and perform original and complex vocal arrangements, with instrumental backing. Style is whatever sounds good.
I am a still a beginning songwriter although I am making progess. I could help most by participating.
I don't have a website now. I will be happy to email rcorded samples to anyone who cares to hear.
I started out playing guitar instead of doing homework. I love to sing and have sung in numerous auditioned ensembles and choirs. I also have played woodwinds, and classical piano. I play my own original songs and covers at open mics.
