An Artist’s Instrument 

I grew up in a nice, upper-middle class neighborhood in San Mateo, California. I was both blessed and cursed. The blessing was that I had two living breathing parents that both lived under the same roof. The curse was that I had inherited one (against my will) who was surely the cheapest father in the …

Better Melodies for an Artist’s Song 

Today we’re going to talk a bit about melody. As a lifelong songwriter, I can tell you honestly that melody has been the hardest part of songwriting for me.

Have You Checked Your Ego Lately? 

Today I want to talk at you a little bit about ego. It’s something I know a little about. No one really gets to be my age without a few reality checks. I’ve lived proud. I’ve lived humble. The perfect place for most people, and me is somewhere in the middle, tilting towards humble. In …
