        per Music Video


        I've been a musician all my life. I spent most of the '70s and '80s as a guitarist and band leader, often traveling around the US. In the '80s I began to lose my hearing so I switched careers to software engineering. Around the mid '00s I got hearing aids and began working on ways to hear well enough to play and produce music again. Technology has finally caught up enough that I can now use a good EQ and headphones in the studio, or in-ears while performing live, and I can hear better than ever!

        My music has Rock, Blues, and Jazz influences. I studied Jazz guitar under Ted Greene in the '70s. My guitar playing is influenced by Frank Zappa, Johnny Winter, Jeff Beck, Brian May, and Jimi Hendrix, and my music has many additional influences, including jazz, rock, and popular music from the early 20th century to today. 

        Creating music and videos is kinda expensive. It involves all the expenses of creating music plus the expenses of creating videos. I have many thousands of dollars invested in equipment, and each finished song requires roughly 100 hours of production time, plus composing, arranging, and hiring musicians, videographers, and other production help. Every dollar you donate goes toward these expenses.

        My goal is to do a big production (like my All You Need Is Love video) at least once a year; and smaller productions roughly every month throughout the year. 

        I've organized my patronage rewards by video. I intend to release a music video for each of my finished songs. I expect to release a new music video about once every month. Of course, Patreon also allows you to cap your contributions so you don't spend more than your budget allows. 

        Finally, always remember: Love is all you need,

        $0 of $1,000 per Music Video
        When I reach $1,000 per video, I will be able to spend more time making music and less time doing the day job!
