Music has always been a big part of my life- I can't imagine life without it. My love of music, especially the music I grew up with and that inspired me has enjoyed a renaissance of sorts in the last ten years and I've been fortunate enough to have performed several times with talented local musicians.
Although I've performed many times in recent years, I consider myself primarily a songwriter and I've written songs for male and female vocals and, like I said, in many different styles. Like the lyrics of my song, Golden Strings say, Music: " she brings me love, she brings me happiness, she brings me joy, she brings me song!"
I began writing music at a very young age and continue to write to this day, songs in a variety of styles from rock to pop, Country to R & B to Gospel and more. My influences have included the Beatles, of course, and many other groups and songwriters of the Sixties and Seventies, including less super but talented groups such as America, the Moody Blues and others, especially the singer-songwriters of the Seventies.
I continue writing and performing to this dayand am currently working on a new tune with a great muisician I've met just since relocating back to San Diego.I especially try to include strong harmonies and good lyrics in all of my songs.
