I am a musician, singer, and songwriter doing this part time but have been doing it all my life. I started singing before I could talk at the age of one and wrote my first real song at 15 years of age. (If you count avant-garde as a song, then the age would be 8.) I currently own my own recording studio with my father and I write, perform, and record my own music (and other's from time to time.) I also have a home studio where I can record demos and post them on youtube as well. I use a free shareware program called Audacity as my recording program. Just because I may use some free and bargain priced equipment, the sound, I feel, doesn't compromise the work and I try to make it the utmost in quality. I am cataloging as many songs as I can for the public to hopefully enjoy and to pass on my legacy. My son is becoming quite the musician and not only is he following in my footsteps, he's actually surpassing what I was able to do at that age. (As of 2010, he's 13 years old.) I also hope the public will enjoy the songs I've written over the past 3 decades. I have many more to still record. The band MINE is more of a concept for me since I've written the songs and performed most of the instruments. I have 4 other members who have helped me with other music projects and performed in other bands. Band names include: Crime Scene, Rice Cracker Project, Prospector, The Potato(e) Fingers, and The Santairs. Together, even though they're in different groups, they are all MINE.
