Songwriting is a joy. Performing has been a surprise. This aspect of my writing started taking shape a couple of decades ago in the form of lyrics and verse. I asked musicians I knew if they'd write the music. But because a lot of my words came with a melody attached, I eventually figured out how to play what I was singing. Then I started singing in front of other people. I love words and I look for as many ways as I can to shape them into something interesting. I perform solo and with a band of songwriters.
