Biography

I was a 'would be' singer from early on and started to perform in public (first miming to records as a comedy act and then singing) from the age of 18 in the 50's. I sang and accompanied myself with guitar as a solo act initially and then as well as part of a duo and then a trio until the mid 80's, though I never played in a band per se. I performed until I was in my early fifties and then never sang a note until three years ago, when my son bought me a Mac with built in Garageband and the bug bit me again. I have come to know that with age the voice does deteriorate and especially so when it's not used regularly; though I'm pleased that although it will never be what it once was, it has definitely improved since I took up singing and playing again on line. Even so, I sometimes have to wait a few days until my voice is better suited for certain songs. Also having performed most of my adult life for all kinds of people in all kinds of venues, I had to sing whatever suited the audience at the time, which has left me swapping various genres as the moment takes me, song-wise. Until my re-emergence I had previously only written two songs; one in my teens and the other in my 30's, so when I began posting on line, is when I began writing my own material seriously.
Performing on line though really woke me up to the fact that it's not good enough to be able to perform, but we also have to be a kind of 'technician' in order to mix/ record etc. and it's been quite an eye-opener for me; in fact I admit I have a very long way to go in that respect.
Having joined iCompostions I hope you will enjoy my music as much as I'm sure I will enjoy listening to others here.
