'Don't keep me a secret'.
I've said this to so many people
that I almost cringe now
after witnessing my special gifts.
I share my talent having
honed my gifts.
I am a muse, a minstrel
learner, teacher,songsmith, and orator.
I share
what I know.
I'm always learning new ways to tell a story
with song.
New humorist twists.
We can look at the world through different lenses
and learn much from those divides.
And, then we often
discover we're not so different as we first imagined.
Music is the portal to understanding
it's a universal language. like dance,
Music is in the wind,
The eternal rhythm of the tide.
When I sing , a warm bond is formed, a wave,
rolling with the current.
There's a hypnotic ebb and flow.

I might sing a few bars of a song, then stop.
to ask a question
I welcome and encourage,
bold, in your face sarcasm. Test me.
Tell me your story.
I will tell you mine.

If there's an awkward moment
a lull in conversation,
or I suspect I'm losing you singing a slow love ballad..
I might change it up in an instant.
When I'm pitching, you're catching.
I'm comfortable talking with my audience
or I may free associate with music
Grabbing and keeping your attention, through spectacle,
and comedic effect.
by singing a song
directly to you. It's all in good fun.
it can be quite creatively expressive to sing about
topics we might not be able to talk about in polite conversation.
The gift of music is good medicine.
I have found folks feel something good inside when I sing.
Being also a songwriter and poet. I can do off the cuff material.
to shock, awe and amaze your audience, of friends or students.
I enjoy sharing Indigenous,traditional, Country, as well as Native American Folk songs.
I've also written and can share a powerful
two part, protest marching songs.
I also can simply can rock and roll,
Along with sing the blues, if you'd like. Or just warm up and we can pick each other's brains.
You name it...I sing slow ballads, or cross over styles.
Along with inventing a few
styles of my own.
Use me.
Live a little.
I enjoy good country western.
I have written and co-written some
I know what the good stuff looks like.
Plain talk, you're going to have a wonderful, memorable
grand old time.
Let's talk soon about about how we can make this happen.
