Original Music

I cannot read or write a note of music, I am self-taught on numerous instruments by ear.
Back when I was a musician I generally wrote and arranged all the words and music.

These songs cross a number of styles and genres and include work I composed for instruments I cannot play, such as violin, cello, baritone saxophone, tenor saxophone, piano, others.
