"Like a River..."

Margaret O'Brien is a wonderful artist and songwriter. Her songs, and how she sings them, prove she's a wonderful person too. Discreetly they'll enter into the deep of your heart and stay for a long, long while. Like a river, whose waters are new at every moment, the songs of Margaret O'Brien sound new to me every time I hear them. The station charts show me I'm not alone to feel so - once entered, they never left. The charts are updated daily, so, naturally, the songs come and go, but those of Margaret, at least one or two, are always there. A chance? Maybe. But for such a long lasting chance there is a special word - Success.

I do not have a studio-produced album yet. There are additional home-recorded individual songs at the links listed in my EPK.


Feeling a bit camera shy


I have played music most of my life, but have been writing songs for the past 10. Several of my family members play, and write as well. I love the blues, folk, jazz, country, rock, even Medieval. My vocal influences are a combination of Bonnie Raitt, Joni Mitchell and Koko Taylor. I love many others like John Prine, Jim Post, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Lonnie Brooks, Van Morrison, BB King, Iris Dement, Emmy Lou Harris.

Grew up on the South Side of Chicago, lived in California, Oregon and New Mexico. Have had a few right and left brained careers such as office work, fiber artist/quiltmaker, software technician and chemical engineer. Now, I live by a forest about 3 hours south of Chicago, that brings inspiration, beauty and peace to my life and am forever grateful for that.

Am a member of ASCAP.

I record at home using Acid, and have learned a whole new appreciation of the folks who do the recording, producing and arranging. What an artform...
