Don’t get me wrong… This post is not to tell you who to vote for or which party to support. In my opinion, political parties should be outlawed. Politicians should be acting on the interests of the people, not their respective parties.

I am only urging that you do get out and vote. This is the one thing we can all do to make a sincere changes in how our country operates. It doesn’t matter how much money you make, how educated you are, how much power you hold. Your voice counts. You may think your vote is just a drop of water in an ocean, but if you get enough drops of water all heading the same way, pretty you soon you have a tidal wave. Peace.

American Songwriter Lyric Contest

So last week I entered the American Songwriter Lyric Contest. Entering contests is not something I normally do, but every once in a while I’ll get cocky and think I have a legit chance to win something.

This particular contest is judging songs based solely on the merits of the lyrics. I entered 4 songs, and I’ll the you, the reader, decide what sort of chance I have.

Here are the songs…

  1. Broken Soul
  2. Legend
  3. Mary Jayne
  4. She Said…

National Suicide Prevention Day

Today is national suicide prevention day. According to the World Health Organization, nearly 800,000 people a year take their own lives. There have been people in my family who were victims of depression and suicide.

The important thing to know is that if you are currently feeling suicidal or if you know someone who you fear may be suicidal is that there is treatment available, and all is truly not lost. If you are the former, I strongly urge you to contact the Suicide Prevention Lifeline or call 1-800-273-8255 or 1-888-628-9454 for support in Spanish. There is also the TrevorLifeline that offers suicide prevention support for the LGBTQ comunity at 866-488-7386.

Take action now… Don’t wait… Peace.

A New EP is Coming in 2021!

I was recently able to recover some recordings I thought lost, and decided they were too good not to finish and release, so with a release date loosely planned for early 2021, I am currently putting together an EP titled “Recordings Vol. I” (I know… Catchy, right?)

The EP will be a collection of original blues, rock and country songs. Here is a sneak preview of what’s to come…

Stay tuned for updates and more music previews.
