If you like rocking the boat, I'm your ship's mate.
Don't keep me a secret'. Because, I am not a show
but your next main event.
I'm here to share my extensive vocal and writing skills
so use me.
Some say muse, some say
student of life. I am here to teach
an extra-curricular class
not taught in school.
I've touched people with music.
Music is a release. Fun.
It's magic, spectacle.
In a sea of fast track career people
on a career fast track.
My niche, what I'm here to do,
is to provide levity and another vantage point
to travel to. A standard deviation from the straight line path.
If just for an hour or two.
Come into the world of music
create history with me.
as a co-creator. A friend and partner in musical crime
Can I transport you to the Sun, the Moon and to Mars.
Open your heart and your spirit, and we'll take off to new places.
I promise, you won't implode or burn up in the rare air.
I probably won't do irreparable damage to your life management plans.
But, if exposure to me makes you feel something,
wonderous, it can't be a bad thing.
I seek imaginative, bold teachers
to allow me in into your sphere of students.
I am of the oral tradition.
I seek not to usurp, but to corrupt the social order just enough
to make your students check their coordinates.
Again, a good thing.
Together we can discover oral traditions lost to us
through mundane language.
Music and song explores new worlds to travel to
A new language to share. I can transport you there.
Let's come together and celebrate
our differences,, celebrate how we look at life through different lenses
We can learn a great deal from what, on the surface divides us.
Give me the privilege to share with your flock.
What I've discovered.
We'll surely have more in common than we have canyons dividing us.
Music is a bridge to greater understanding.
An unspoken dialect to bring everyone closer
A universal language
Music whispers in the wind
a lost mother tongue language somehow we can speak,
a grammar we naturally understand.
The syntax of tone, texture, and tempo
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.
