Born in 1953 I started making music (my first love) from my childhood up. When I was 15, I wrote my first songs and I went on writing better and better, resulting in recording a single in 1977 at EMI. Meanwhile I was a singer/guitar player in several cover-bands but in 1987 I was tired of making music and it was time to do my second love; working on a farm.
For twenty years I spent my time with driving tractors, milking cows and all the other hard work as a hand.
But blood is thicker than water and like many other musicians and that age, I got a mind to make music again.
Earned enough money for living for the rest of my life, I made myself familiar with digital recording with endless possibilities, wrote new songs and in 2012 I had enough stuff to release my album "Footprints In The Sand", which I only released regional.
And I went on and on, writing new songs and recording and in 2015 I finished my second album "The Fair Story".
It's the fair story about power, religion, indoctrination, oppression, exploitation, the human race, overpopulation, people, death and believe in god.
In 2016 I worked on a remix of my album "Footprints In The Sand", as I was unhappy with the sound of the 2012 version and brought it to the world in the Fall of 2016. This album is about my life, starting on how I returned to music after a twenty years intermission. Then it's about some events in my life losing some beloved friends but also about nature and how I think about life and death. Futher on, on this 16 track album, it sounds like a parting, but I hope it's not!
