If you like rocking the boat, I'm your man.
So, don't keep me a secret'.
I'm here to share my vocal and writing talents.
I am an entertainer. A muse.
A truth telling teacher
in a sea of truth seeking students.
I share the gift of the best and the worst of
whatever I may know.
I'm always searching for a fresh, edgy, way to tell your story
You are the song
I am the words.
Together we can discover new rhythms and chords.
We can even see our world through different lenses
and learn so much from those divides.
Only to discover,
we have more in common than differences.
Music is my portal to make more sense of
this life.
It's my road map to come closer to the galaxy of you

A universal matrix of song and of dance,
Music is whispers in the wind
a lost mother tongue language we somehow understand
without ever learning it's syntax at home or in school.
As eternal as the waves of the Ocean, river and tide.

an ebbing and flowing hypnotic
Current and wave.
I might sing a few bars of a song, then stop.
My presentation asks then answers bigger questions
I welcome even encourage,
bold, in your face sarcasm.
Put me to the test.
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 suddently change the tempo or even the song.
To make it more relevant.
When I'm pitching, I want you catching.
I'm comfortable talking with my audience
or I may free associate with music
Grabbing and keeping your attention, through spectacle,
and comedy..
by singing a song
directly to you. It's all in good fun.
it can be cathartic to sing about
topics we might not be able to talk about in polite conversation.
Music is good medicine.
I have found folks feel something good inside when I sing.
Until that changes,I'll keep singing.
As a songwriter and poet. I can do off the cuff material.
to shock, awe and amaze any audience of friends.
I enjoy sharing traditional music, country, as well as regional Folk songs.
I've also written and can share powerful protest marching songs.
Or play and sing rock and roll,
Along with the blues.
For a warm up we can pick each other's brains
with a question answer session.
I involve my audience, playing slow ballads, or cross over styles.
Along with inventing a few
styles of my own.
Use me.
Live a little.
You know what the good stuff looks like.
Plain talk, you and your guests, are going to have a memorable
and wonder filled
grand old time.
Let's find a way to make this happen.
