Writing Process:  What sparks a song can be from many different sources - lyrics first vs. music first - how does it work? For me it works both directions. In recent years I have been doing more and more songs starting with the words first. The result in many cases has been more interesting music and more content filled songs.  Music generally takes the forefront for me and does sometimes require some lyrical adjustments. It is a give and take.

It is also not uncommon to have words and music come together at the same time or words and rhythm. I don't totally understand it, but I know that being able to write happens because I was able to listen. I feel many times that a song is a gift which I have been lucky enough to find.

About Time Back Cover and Introduction

Solo Effort: Typically when someone makes a music album, it requires and gets the contribution of a number of people.  In truth, this album would probably be even stronger had other people been involved.  But it is my nature to want to do as much as I can on my own, and so I did until it was done. On the positive side, it becomes a complete expression of how I view, interpret, and try to communicate my world.

How These Pieces Were Picked: I am not totally sure; I know that they are all connected - they have either come to the surface in the last three years or were written in the last three years. Some of these pieces were picked out to be recorded on my previous CD, but it ended up being declared finished after just 6 songs and so it was -  a blessing given the speed at which I could make copies at that time.

1Danband - Last Six was recorded in the Fall of 2002.  There are six tracks total and approximately 25 minutes of music. The instrumentation is similar and for the most part the pieces are all from that time.  Below are a couple of excerpts.

From  Just A Breeze

         Loving Me First
