About

"Make compositions. Paint when the idea possesses you. Use the knowledge you acquire in the class of life at once. Like to do your work as much as a dog likes to gnaw a bone and go at it with equal interest." - Robert Henri

I have been a full-time artist since 2018, though I have been making art a centerpiece to my life for two decades before that. Most recently, I made a living mostly through my live concerts. I could pay my bills and more off of the fees from live shows, CDS & merch, with a little on the side from streaming, art sales, working on events, or helping other folks with their creative projects.

This time has asked me to reflect upon the creative process, as the performing artists are one of the sectors that may be universally and irreversibly affected. I am indebted to how incredibly supportive my fans have always been. When I wasn't sure if I should start performing solo, my friends and fans backed my first solo recording. When I was on the way to Los Angeles with barely enough money to cover the cost of creating my last album, people stepped in with $5 to $500 (and a few lovely souls, even more) just to see me achieve this life-long dream, with nary a promise of anything in return. You buy CDs, even if you don't have a CD player. You tell me stories about how my music moves you.

I am here to bring more transparency to my creative process, something I have found increasingly difficult to do on the more mainstream social media sites. My fledgling Patreon page is already showing the potential to open some of my inner barriers to creative sharing in the age of the internet. Having a threshold that will keep some folks out will give me some extra comfort in sharing works-in-progress, non-musical creations, and other things that I don't necessarily want the whole world to see. I have dozens of projects brewing, little things and huge things, and I am always doing something creative, even if there isn't an end-goal in mind. 

If you choose to join me here, you'll have insider access to the creative life I live, as well as sneak-peaks of works in progress, and a chance to help me shape my creative offerings. You'll be a part of my innermost inner circle, and will always have my ear and my gratitude. Send ideas my way, tell me anything -- we're here for each other.

Thank you, always, for your ears and eyes and hearts, which you loan to me during our time together. May those moments help lift you through many other parts of your lives -- I know they do for me.

See you inside!
