About

It has been about a year since i joined Soundcload and i am still very impressed with the people and the music i have discovered on this site. I originally joined to be able to share my music and listen to other songwriters work. It has turned out to be so much more than that. I have had bad days than turn to good on Soundcloader comments and I hope that some people have experienced the same from my comments. I guess the most surprising thing for me is the supportive nature of the SC community. I have found some wonderful people on this site with similar interests, a true community . Here are a couple of my latest observations. i find it amazing that there is so much unknown talent here. Artists i have discovered here rival any popular artists out in the so called pro music world. The ability to have real meaningful dialogue with those artists takes this site to a whole other level. Artist and fan are one. Try having a real dialogue or music conversation with a so called popular artist through my space or facebook and you will be seriously disappointed. Also the right amount of encouragement, criticism and healthy competition are pushing many SC artists to grow and improve. SC is an incubator that provides the tools and environment an artist needs to grow. It would not surprise me to see some of my SC friends rise to the top of the music industry.

I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments and support. I am in awe of the talent and good will that surrounds me on Soundcload.

about me

I have been writing songs from the day i picked up the guitar at age 17. In my twenties i played in bands and put together several studio projects. My biggest thrill in music was to get one of my songs played on 2 new music radio shows. One in Baltimore . One in Philadelphia. They played a tom petty song and then mine on one show. Thats as far as it went for my music. Many years later i am still writing songs. . In recent years i have been writing in heavier and darker themes. I write about the irony's in life and the thornier side of human nature. I am attracted to music that cuts as well as sooth's.
The first 8 songs uploaded are from my Little Man Big Dream project.{ Set 1}These 8 songs were all written and recorded in my basement in 2011 on a Tascam DC2 digital recorder. These songs were originally meant to be played for friends and family . They are the first songs i have recorded in over twenty years. I have recently completed Set 2 which I have been calling the Sounds Of Venus Project. I will be remixing these 12 songs and putting them on CD. This is all pretty much non commercial. I don't have the skills to make a professional recording at this time. Set 2 songs are more intense with my rock roots starting to show a bit. Hope you like the songs.Set 3 is unnamed to date but it is a whole different animal from my previous work. I am working towards getting back in a real studio and making a first class recording with other like minded musicians. No drum machine. No playing every instrument just to get the idea down.
