Description:
Career writer (and poet) by trade, I've been delighting in the songwriting journey. Working on my guitar skills, and arranging now, in addition to past lyric-writing only. I'm very serious and passionate about this venture, and would love to collaborate with others. I am mostly involved in the Folk genre--which quickly bleeds into Americana/Alternative Country/Indie... I am not a performer. And, I 'm mostly interested in crafting great songs. Though, I am also working on my voice, just because.

Sample lyrics:


Listen for the Day

Come on sister with your up's an' downs,
Let's sing in the kitchen and bake a pie;
Mama's working to put a dollar down,
Nothin' comes easy like the stars in the sky.

Every night, dreamin'
Takes me far away, then
Brings me home again,
Where I hear the trains 
Whistlin' through the day,
And I know I want to make
Them take me far away.

Come on sister don't be that a way,
Why don’t you go out, dress up, and mess up the night;
Papa's lookin' to better this place,
Oh, let's laugh away our demons until they cry.
Every night, dreamin'
Takes me far away, then
Brings me home again,
Where I hear the trains a
Whistlin' through the day.
We could jump it, 'cause
There’s nowhere that we gotta stay.

So, listen, listen for the day;
Listen, listen for the day;
Oh, listen for the day,
Whistlin' away.

Mind now brother how you walk the talk,
Let's wish on falling stars, the moon’s still shy,
Oh, your foot might slip, and you should get lost;
Cause a tongue that slick ought to woo the sky.

Every night, dreamin'
Takes me far away, then
Brings me home again,
Where I hear the trains 
Whistlin' through the day.
We’ll get on one and
We’ll promise to be back someday.

So, listen, listen for the day;
Listen, listen for the day;
Listen, listen for the day, whistlin',
Whistlin' away. Oh, Let's go to the station.
And, listen for the day;
Listen, for the day;
(whistlin') ....
