There is a great man in every story, but an even greater story in every man. I write songs to tell a story. I write songs to be part of a story: a story that someone could read as he sits on the bus, or as she waits for her prescription to be filled. Poetry is my way of keeping away from all that has become normal. It is a constant reminder to not slip into feeling content. Most of my songs revolve around such topics as the open road, love, lost love and death, inspired either by my illicit past or a future that I have thought on so often that I can taste it through the heels on my boots.

Traveling, being on the move, waking up in one place and closing my eyes in another seem to be of my only current affection. I want to experience as much as I can, in the time that I am given, touching on those who take the time to listen. I have no desire to obtain lavish monetary wages. There is much to learn from scraping by: the virtue of patience and appreciating the luxury of a generous filet.

One of the most overwhelming fears weighing in the pack of most every person is the despair of a heart stopped beating. When I was years younger and watching The Beverly Hillbillies, it was the first time I heard Hank Williams. Many emotions hit me, but the one that nearly knocked me out was realizing that Hank was no longer living on this planet, and yet he was so alive in that moment. You can’t kill a poet. You can take me, but you can’t take my song. Writing is my religion. It is my key to immortality.
