Thanks so much for visiting my new site! Been seriously busy this last year, but I guess that's a good thing, right? I'll make sure to post something new at least once a week. When my time frees up (which is highly unlikely), I'd love to post everyday to the point where all y'all get sick of me, for sure!
Being a songwriter, I've actually forgotten how fun, liberating, relaxing, therapeutic, etc. it is to simply write...and not to some melody or track, not because I'm getting paid to, not because another song project that was supposed to be delivered two weeks before is being painstakingly rushed.
My late fave and beloved cousin, Heintje (pronounced HEN-gee), was a wonderful writer. I always envied his quick wit, personality and writing skills, while he always praised my musicianship. Heintje, the most caring, compassionate, fun, smart and most encouraging being I've ever known is actually one of the driving forces for this site. If he were still alive, it actually would have been him working on it. But in a way, he still lives within me, and my actions and thoughts very much gets filtered through his Spirit. I believe anyone who has ever known him intimately, especially "The Cousins" are in the same boat as me. Can I get a witness??:)
Ok, had no idea this first post would even touch upon my best friend and cuz, Henge, but I guess that's what writing from the heart is all about. You never know where or how deep it will take you.
Had 2 separate one-hour gigs last night, and now I gotta bring my youngest son to a basketball game, then I gotta sing one song at a Christmas party right after, then I have a 1-hour gig tonight at 8, and then right after will join the fam at my cousin's grad party.
Much love y'all!
