2013: I Resolve to Share the Music
It is that time of year again . . . New Year's Resolutions. Rather than create a list of well-intended resolutions, I am simply resolving to share the music.
As a kid growing up, music was both "my refuge" and "my dream." It was a sanctuary; a place I could escape, find comfort, peace, vent my frustrations, and leave feeling like everything was going to be alright. I dreamed of music becoming "my life." My final thesis in my High School Senior English class outlined my lofty ambitions and plans for becoming a professional musician.
In the summer of 1978, two years after graduating High School, I began the journey of becoming . . . Several years later, a “curve ball” took the wind out of my sails, and I eventually walked away from the music business. From that point on, music continued to be a part of my life; however, the sharing was limited to family, friends, my local church, and an occasional special event.
Fueled by affordable breakthroughs in music technology and my passion for creating music, I began putting together a home recording studio in the fall of 2009. The time spent in this creative environment has rekindled a desire to share the music with a broader audience. So . . . for 2013, I resolve to share the music with the hope you'll love what I do as much as I love creating it. :-)
