This is the bio page. It's a lot harder for me to write this one than the others involving democracy, Star Wars and fighting for justice in the world. I guess struggle for me includes coherently talking about myself. We'll get over it. I want you to know who I am.
I have been a singer/songwriter in and about New York City since the late 1980s. I have been an activist for longer than that. For six years the Songs of Freedom show has given me the opportunity to stay busy producing and playing. I enjoy the creativity in that. I also enjoy sharing the spotlight with activists and artists passionate about their work. I have made many new friends and have learned a lot too.
Sometimes I wonder what my role is in the progressive social agenda music movement. Once upon a time I thought I would have to be the next great singer/songwriter to be happy. A lot of ego involved in that. A lot of weight. I am not in that place anymore. I think my role is more of a spirit who provides a space and an energy for creative artists to meet each other and express themselves. Sure, I like to play too. And I do. But the weight is off. The "have to" of it is gone. It's more fun this way and fun is important.
I could tell you of all the places I've played and all the songs I've written and all the groups I belong to and the famous people I've met. Would that really impress you? I am more interested in energy and in reading energy.
Can you read the energy here?
I look forward to sharing our art together !
