Like Leonard Cohen, as I recently discovered, I was late coming into the "music scene." I was a married father of 5 children when, at 35 years old, I became entangled in the mystery of songwriting. I wrote a number of songs from 1985, when our journey began, until the Spring of 1987, after which, the well dried up for some years. I did some performing during that time, and recorded two "records," but I eventually became absorbed in the raising of children, and my job as an ER physician. All the while, years went by. The songwriting magic reappeared in August of 1996, when, after a 9 year hiatus, I wrote a song entitled "Hold Me When It Rains," on a hot, dry August afternoon, amid thunder, and a pittance of rain. More songs would come over ensuing years, until I realized I would need to invest in recording equipment in order to find the time to document my works. I bought a Mac G-4 in 2003, and to date, I have self-produced 8 full length recording projects starting with, "Let's Go Get Cloned," which was first released in 2006. Six of those projects were completed after 2011. I have mastered some of my projects more than once, released and re-released as my proficiency at mixing and producing has improved. I am currently in the midst of finalizing re-mixes of all of my self produced records. I have come to a point where I am satisfied with what I have accomplished. I am convinced that what I take in to finalize at the mastering facility is about as good as I can do, and as close as it needs to be. This 5-song EP is the latest of my recordings, except for my song, "Not a Day Goes By,” which I wrote and recorded in 2005. I must have been busy back then, because I discovered, I never actually processed the words into my computer. After all those years, I pulled the tracks out of a folder, and finally gave the song the attention it deserved. It is the title cut, and is in regards to the passing of my father into the Afterworld. I proudly include it along with some well recognized classics, and an additional original song written by my BFF. I could go on, and will later, but for now, I hope you will take the time to enjoy my latest offering. Please keep your eyes open, and your ears peeled back in anticipation of the re-release of all my other recordings. My music has been one of the passions of my life, and I truly believe, if you listen, you will understand why.
