been playing guitar for many years--ever since my dad surprised
me with a guitar one day after school, that he hid in a broom closet.
For the past 10 years I've spent most of my time leading worship
at the churches we've attended, with a bunch of guys that I've really
enjoyed playing with. But in all that time, I never made the effort
to put down any songs of my own. 21 years after getting that first
guitar, I figured I'd better give it a shot, and in the spring of
2002, I started. The songs on this website are my first, and only....so
far, full efforts at writing.
songs are mostly coming out of things that I see around me every
day. I guess I feel like they are 'real-life' stories, set to my
style of music. I record all these basic demos at home, running
my guitars and vocals through a mic and basic pre-amp, and then
directly into my pc. I'm truly amazed at how decent of a sound you
can get with the simplest of tools.
'day job' is as a web
developer, and my 'real job' is as a dad to three beautiful
kids, and a husband to my beautiful wife who allows me to be goofy
in this love of music.
