I am a lifelong Kansan (go Jayhawks) and grew up in Lawrence.
I have been writing songs for as long as I can remember. Its great to finally being able to share some of my songs beyond immediate family and friends. I do my songs on keyboard. Some of them I program the keyboard and play live, others I multi-track in Cakewalk. Most of the time the words and the music come at the same time, though I'll occassionally write some lyrics and then work on the music afterwards. I almost never write music and then search for a lyric.
I am not the best singer, so I do my best, but this is limiting for me. Definitely looking to collaborate with people who could perform these songs better than I can.
My influences: Beatles, Wings (huge Macca fan), Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Frank Zappa (I haven't really posted any of these style as of yet), probably a little Beach Boys/Lindsey Buckingham.
