Comments

I write mostly longer, pad heavy songs in the vein of what is called "new age". I call it 'NO age"! Nice sounding, moving pieces that go from soft and mellow to loud and radical. I don't do vocals. All leads range from synth, acoustic guitars, electric guitars, violin, and several sounds from the synths. I'm a Christian artist without the "dead religious", traditional sounding music. Sinse I got my new CD burner, things have opened up a lot.I have a lot more chances to be heard by giving a CD to radio station. Cassetes and Dats don't get any where with most business'. Feel free to write me!!
