the songs


Over the last 40+ years, I’ve written hundreds of songs–some of them actually turned out well. Below is a selection of the songs–with brief stories and links. I’ve noted if others played on the track. In some cases, the quality is sketchy, especially the live versions. Several of these songs are demos, recorded by me (so not professionally recorded). But, I still want you to hear them in case it makes a difference.

**note: I’m still adding songs at this time–as I find time to record them
