Hi There…

I started writing this stupid blurb like three times. Would it be best to be self-deprecating and funny? Should it just be some sort of disembodied narrative? I’ll just start writing and see where it goes.

First of all, this is my online web presence. I am putting my music here, along with a few other things of interest to me, although not necessarily to others. But the main thing is the music. Well, and some writing. I miss my old blog. I just need a place to do more than post.

I have hundreds of tunes. I really do. Not all of them are recorded or have even been played for others. I hope to use this platform to share some of these, along with the others already available on the various streaming and download services. Spotify. iTunes. GooglePlay. Pick yours and go.

I hope you dig. If you don’t, I’m still thrilled you took time out to listen.

Peace to all.
