One of the guiding principles of my life has been to give all I can and ask for nothing. The music, and this site, are paid for by unsolicited contributions, mostly of the people who stop to listen to me on the street. I feel I am here to play for everyone, and I try to. I play for the people and the people support me and I don't worry exactly who is paying for what. The places it pays to play supporting the places it doesn't. I try to take my music everywhere and play for anyone, anytime. I have made my music available to more people through the web, as well, and hope to create a community of fans I can provide a continuous stream of information, audio, and video for, as well as get feedback on the process. I started recording, and distributing the CDs, though still on a donation basis. I try to sign each one, a personal encounter with the artist. Again, some people pay more and some people pay less and many more people are able to get CDs. It is directly from the people I get the power to accomplish things. I am truly a publically-supported artist, a reflection of public interest and encouragement. People like what they hear, and want to hear more, it is their power, and their numbers, that make it happen. I am even considering moving beyond what I can accomplish personally, "doing more with the music" by connecting with the music business more, even if it just means using an agent. If you wish to help out; by arranging or suggesting places to play, by inviting me to play at your place for whoever you want to have there, or offering me a place to stop and visit or jam and record with other musicians between shows, or with just your thanks and encouragement; please feel free. I am at your service.
