My music falls into the contemporary folk category. It is a blend of
acoustic and electric guitar, keyboards, percussion and vocals. I try to
compose a unique feeling using syncopated rhythm and lighthearted
I attempt to put some order on my table, I want to be secure. I sing
about social struggles we face every day. I attempt to mend our
relationships torn as we strain against adversity and mockery. I'll
pacify negativity with humor and delight.
I am confident I have carved out a niche in the world of music. I will
continue to compose with the same formula that has made me what I am.
I'm going to keep writing and playing the way I want to, I won't perform
any other way. I'll keep trying to be unique.
I grew up in a small town in north central Washington. Music has always
been a part of my life. I'm working on my 9th CD. I am a voting member
of the Grammys and my last 3 CDs have been listed for preliminary vote
in the Contemporary Folk section.
