To date I have been awarded five professional songwriting grants from FACTOR (Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent on Records), (www.factor.ca), and have had several of my songs published and recorded by Independent Artists. Ive written almost 400 songs since I started writing back in the late seventees and now have 13 songs published.
Songwriting is a blessing for me. It's gotten me through a lot of tough times...almost like its a type of therapy. I think only other songwriters can understand how cool it is to start with an idea and mold the words and melody into a song...that will be yours forever. I immerse myself in my writing because it always makes me feel good. Its MY identity.
Ive had several cuts and that too is cool. My goal is to continue to improve as a writer, to expand my circle of co-writers and to one day get that elusive major cut. I WILL have a major cut someday...thats one of the few things I've never had any doubts about. Thank you for reading a little about me and I hope you enjoy my tracks.
