To bring you up to speed:
1971 - I was born.
1972 - I started gathering experiences for songwriting.
1986 - I started playing guitar and writing songs.
2014, Dec. 13 - I started recording my first album of previously written material. I was told that some people considered 12/13/14 to be a lucky date. After 5 weeks of gear failure after gear failure after gear failure (culminating in the total and complete implosion of my Mac) I gave up, disheartened.
2015, Dec. 1 - I started recording my album again.
2015, Dec. 19 - My basement flooded and I had to dismantle my studio. And a large portion of my basement.
2016, Jan 2 - I resumed recording my album. And haven't looked back since!
And away we go!
