I've spent most of my adult life playing in bands, writing songs and singing. I started out singing and playing country music for my Uncle. I have been in Rock bands, pop bands and semi-pro club bands.
Behind all of this has been a desire to write and perform my own music. It is a lifelong dream of mine to have my songs arranged and produced to the highest professional levels. This dream is becoming a reality and I am so proud of the results.
To be honest, the music is reward in itself. Whether it sells or not is secondary. It would be great to sell music and/or write to make a living. What makes me different? Nothing. I'm not different; I'm just another tiny cog in an industry of damn good pro and semi-pro musicians and performers. I 'm proud to be part of that community and the Internet world that brings us together. It's great to get opinions and link to people around the world who share that passion.
Just had TWO songs reach the semi-final of the UK Songwriting Competition
