Q: Ever thought of taking that major shot with a major producer & recording in Nashville? & then releasing and promoting it to radio with distribution on a worldwide level? Doc might have a way.
A: I just like playing music. I record my own stuff live, with one mic and draw my own CD artwork, make and produce the CDs myself. I would like to get into more festivals this year and beyond but making music to have a hit song is not my goal as a musician. Thank you for your interest.
