Album Notes
Can you imagine what it’s like to hear music in your head constantly with no letup? If you are an artist, a composer of music, then you can. If you are not, then your joy comes from hearing the music that others compose and offer to your outer ear for interior penetration. If you are a composer, then you will not see me as anything other than routine in the 300-year continuum of composers.

What if you did not know that you were an artist, a composer, even a musician? What would you do all day with the constant flow of melody, harmony, and rhythm? Could you process it and count yourself normal? I could not. The longer I tried to “cope” with reality, the more I fell apart. Knowing that there was a God “hounding” me to become my best-created self did not help me settle down and allow the music to flow.

What did He want? Why did He make me? What will He expect me to do if I surrender to Him? What is to become of me if I admit that He is real? What is to become of me if I admit that the music inside me is real, that Heaven and Hell are not states of mind but actual places with real souls dwelling there?

The music on this CD contains many of the answers to those questions as they were provided to me in the early days of my detox from substance abuse and alcoholism. The remaining answers are found in my day-to-day existence and the interaction with daily existing people like yourself.

We all ask the same questions from our own unique state in life. As long as we all make it home, it really doesn’t matter what route we take to get there.

I hope you find excitement, joy, and intrigue in my Suite for a Fish Out of Water. I did while living it...and the journey continues...
