Many thanks to the Soundcloud community for the great support and inspiration!
Several months ago I thought I'd try Soundcloud. The intention was mostly to "house" my songs somewhere safe and maybe begin writing some new tunes.
A few years ago I threw away a box of unlabeled cassetes & CD's with 100's of song ideas that were becoming a source of confusion and growing discomfort.
Me humming melodies in every style with ridiculous lyrics and annoying guitar sounds and terrible drum machine beats.and worse.
I'm certain I threw away a handful of good ones but it was not worth the stress.
More mishaps and confusion, more lost songs and malfunctioning recorders and computers, I needed a break. I took a 5 year break.
I was getting old(er) and becoming a different guy. So I started writing songs and posting them as I wrote 'em.
I have no grand plan, I'm happy enough to have my 2 little girls listen to these years from now.
I've recently completed collaborations with Pall Of A Past World "Winnebago", Shoemansky "Homesick", Bergman "Ian Brown" & "Stoned Butterfly", Steph Casey "My Lovely Letterbox" & "A Love To Stay In For", "The Sandman's Orchestra "To Haunt You", and Sink\Sink "Hardbitten".
I had a great time doing these and I look forward to exploring more opportunities to collaborate as time allows.
