  • What About the Look?

    What About the Look?

      When Earth, Wind and Fire first started performing years ago, they were a group of young people.  They were several multi-instrumentalists, creating this phenomenal music, putting on a nice musical performance and people were blahzay about it all.  They would perform, receive this great applause and then the next band would come up and […]

  • Amatuers and Pros – the School of Hard Knocks

    “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” That’s an old saying and one that I have found to be quite true.  I began my journey as a “recording artist” and “songwriter” in 2005.  I left the lounge and band scene to do my own stuff.  One of the first things that I learned is […]
