    Musician, Writer But Down to Earth (hopefully)

    From Detroit area I've had my music played all over the world. That's largely due to online sites like myspace, mp3.com, last fm. It's pretty cool to know there's someone listening to your songs at almost any moment. Quite a few folks have bought my albums over the years as well...

    I've played the French horn

    for almost 6 years now. There's just something about reading something from a sheet of paper and turning it into a sound that I found exhilarating. I also love reading and writing, so the fact that I love music kind of makes sense. I wouldn't say I'm the best by a long hall, but...

    Just Getting Started

    I've lived in Austin, TX for 21 years and love music.  I play guitar, bass, and sing.  I prefer to write songs rather than just be a player.  I've recently finished a 5 song demo CD which I'm moderately happy with.  It was recorded on a 16 track digital...

    Violin

    I've been playing for eight years. I love it, especially when I'm playing a song I like. I hate being forced to play a song I don't like but it's not too bad. It feels so good to play and it's calming to me. I haven't played in like 3 months but occasionally I'll pull it out...
