A Selection from my CD



My band, Somebody Else's Nightmare is releasing its first CD, Strength and Kindness, October 11 2014

I thought a link to one of the songs was appropriate

About Lonely Town

I’ve always loved standards. The world at large decides which tunes eventually become standards. They become part of our lives, enjoyed by generations to come. Lonely Town has some elements a standard. A few nice phrases, hopefully, a memorable melody. It follows the typical AABA structure of countless standard tunes.

It was composed from a warm-up exercise. This self-created exercise consists of playing a complex bass pattern while singing a melody to compliment the bass part. I may do this for hours, sometimes stopping to write out a few ideas. This song was born from one of those ideas.
