Somewhere back in 1994 or 1995, my parents bought me a guitar and pretty much ruined everybody's lives. That's a bit strong. I still play in a couple bands and I write songs that I think are pretty good. But at the time, I took to the guitar like a fish to the wrong sort of water, and I took to singing like that same fish to the infinite vacuum of outer space.
In 2010, I released "Nine Songs." Because those nine were the only ones I'd written and recorded in the preceding 15 years that were worth half a damn. A couple of them I still dig. I play a couple with a band. In public, even.
Of course I designed the album cover and the Website, and created all the copy on said Website, because I wouldn't force that task on anyone else. This was my undertaking, and it was my burden. Also, I liked the way it looked.
