Music is dear to me, and I try to write about what I know. Simple music for simple people is my only goal.
Creativity is paramount.
I attended a music school in the twin-cities out of high school, but I dropped out as it was costing me my creativity. The “practicing” gave me horrendous tendonitis and I took two years off of music. This experience made me question why I play music at all.
I do not practice anymore. I just want to make good music, with good people. Just a simple fostering of our little art scene up here in Northern Wisconsin makes me happy. Maybe I’ll hit the road and meet some new friends. Maybe I’ll stay home and catch another sunrise.
In the streets and trails, I see the form of my music, in peoples words the lyrics, in the wilderness the timbres, and through our daily shuffle, the rhythm. My heart is on a thread, and I must follow.
Live I am often joined by Dane Hauser on percussion and backing vocals. We have been making music together since the beginning, 20 years ago, and have never stopped. My heart is on a thread, and I must follow.
