I was born and raised with a strong classical and theatrical music background, alongside a rock & roll foreground. Later came jazz and all the rest. Tunes have constantly blessed my head. That’s why I don’t need a radio. Songs I’ve heard and ones I haven’t. I tried to write down the ones I haven’t.
These are the cream of the first group. Mostly influenced by the New Wave genre that was occurring at the time but there’s also a blues tune, one reggae, a ballad, etc. I wrote the eight songs while stomping around Los Angeles from 1978 to 1982. That’s when I pursued the dream but came up short. Two of the bands I played with came close with studio recordings, local radio air play, and movie auditions, but to no avail. And what a roller coaster ride that was!
