Welcome

Have you ever heard any of those stories about people suffering some sort of head injury and afterwards discovering extraordinary new abilities, like music or art or math or linguistics?

I think I’m one of them.

Ever since I first heard The Beatles, I tried in vein to write a few good songs. But from little kid to over-40 adult, I was a pretty terrible songwriter. I could always get started, but I could never finish anything, at least not anything I was proud of.

A severe traumatic brain injury in 2006 changed everything.

After it happened, I couldn’t stop writing and finishing songs. Gone were the days when I might only get as far as a lick, a lyric or just a beat. Even better, for the first time in all my life, I liked my songs, I liked them so much I made a few albums. The doctors could never explain it, I certainly can’t, no one can. All of which makes me wonder, did I really suffer an injury or was I granted a wish?

Hope you enjoy the music.
