 I have been doing a little bit of thinking and a whole lot of writing. Really. A lot of writing. I have thought about it and I think I am going to start a page on here just for my writing. So, I’m going to do just that! There will be fiction. Oh yes, there will be fiction. There will also be non-fiction stuff that I just feel belongs on the writing page and not on the blog section. Maybe even some sci-fi, poems, or semi-organized...

Allow me to introduce a fellow musician, songwriter, writer, and creator. Mike O’Cull is one of the people that makes me jealous – I write one song, he has written a micro-poem, a blog post, an article, and had a pizza. Mike has been doing this for a long time, and he is always sharing what he learns openly. He is one of those cats that I like to talk to because he’s real with what he says and what he does. He...

I have to be honest. I hate this. I was planning on taking this time to do a lengthy, honest, and kind of geeky post about EMDR therapy. I can’t write about that right now. Why? Is it because I’m having a food hang-over? No (even though I am). Is it because I’m currently binging on Netflix a show about tiny houses? No (even though I am). It’s because I can’t go 30 minutes without having at least one moment...

Everyone – musician, artist, accountant, whatever, – every human has been criticized. I’ve had people call my music shit. Yes, it hurts. Yes, it sucks. Yes, it has happened. And – yes, it will happen again. What do I do after? Sometimes, I wallow. I sit there and pity myself and question my passion, dedication to, and love of music. I hate the person who said it and I hate myself for believing them. One of several...

5 Ways To Get Over Stage Fright


Posted on Jul 6, 2016

I have a lot of people ask me how I can get up in front of a crowd and play music, tell stories, make jokes, perform. Everyone seems curious about how I don’t have stage fright. I read blogs like Sonic Bids who post about different things for us music folks to do – like THIS and THIS. While I think they have some good ideas, I thought I’d put together my own ideas. I hope they’re helpful. So, here’s my list of how to...

Being a musician, a writer, a painter, an artist – hell, being a PERSON – has its ups and downs. This I can attest to. Life is a rollercoaster of The Good, The Bad, and the WTF?… This is Life as I know it. Oh well…It is this Life, the Life I’ve lived, the things I’ve seen and done, dreamed and chased, worried about and feared, failed and succeeded, taken pride or shame in – all these are the basic building blocks of not only who...
