Q

Do you write all your own songs? And when did you start composing? Just LOVE every tone in your voice!

Hey Thanks. I write or co-write most of my songs. I record one by a friend once in a while. I first tried writing in high school. Didn't really finish one till college. It's a mysterious, never-ending struggle to find them.

Q

I have a favor to ask and I couldn't think of a better songwriter--- so I'll try and beg. I've been filling books with so many lyrics that I desperately need a more experienced musicians help. My music room has all I could need but someone 2 take a chance with me. I've been heartbroken beyond pain, brushed my tears with laughter and nodded knowingly without an answer.
I have a particular need to thank bits of bliss and curse the unlucky times that I watch with close attention. Please give me the honor to share and possibly encourage a bit of interest!?I also am florist in San Marvelous
Thanks
KATHLEEN

Kathleen,

I'm honored, but I don't see what I can do to help. I would suggest you search for people in your community (actual or online) for fellow lyric writers in order to join (or create) a club of like-minded folks. If you don't yet play an instrument - pick up a guitar and learn - it's good for your brain! Or go to open mics to get to know up and coming musicians in your area, and find one or more that you can work with. Good luck, persist,
Slaid

Thanks Phillip. It's an honor to be mentioned along side those two great writers. We have tried many times to make a Colorado tour happen. It never seems to come together, but we'll keep trying!

are there any plans to release your back catalogue on vinyl (please)!

Sorry, Richard. Just not enough hipsters to release back catalog on vinyl. But the new album, coming in June, might be a different story …
