I wrote this song in autumn of 2018, sent a mix to my good friend Wade for guitar ideas. Wade nailed the guitar parts & took the song 2 another level ... ie; the "e-bow" part during the verses, Awesome. I love to collaborate w/him & this to me is proof! Wade was engineer & mix/master 4 all the recording. He has taught me so much about recording and live sound for he is one of the best at both ~ Thank you my friend! I played my 2001 Jazz bass through my Nitewalker Bass Guitar Tube PreAmp ~

I have a new endorsement with Ace Performance Picks. Hailing from Tennesse, Anthony Crawford loved going to the music store with his dad & brother. He loved all the different types of picks he would see and that facination turned into his own creations starting about ten years ago. Now, in 2023 I will be using his picks and l love the way the feel, play and help articulate my tone ! Find them on Instragram: @aceperformancepicks You can also search for them on Facebook & Etsy ~
Where I share life and other cool things....
I've been playing bass guitar since the fall of 1976. I'm a multi-instrumentalist playing rhythm/lead guitar (favoring the acoustic), drums, keys/piano, in that order by the love and proficiency of playing each instrument. I switched to bass guitar when my band needed a bassist and it was then that I realized I had found my niche, especially when it came to playing bass and singing at the same time. I am also a singer/songwriter and feel they are my strongest attributes. I love to record and perform live.
I am inspired by the music I listen to, the stories I read & documentaries of artists I like. There are different things in life that motivate me to write music, such as heart break, overcoming a battle or the many amazing things of God. What is most excellent is collaborating with other musicians to create new music!
My earliest influences of music and bands were songs my momma played on the radio when I was 3 or so. My earliest memories of who I listened to on the radio when I was 7 were The Partridge Family, Gilbert O'Sullivan, The Jackson Five, Bobby Sherman, David Cassidy, Paul McCartney & Wings to name a few. I used to sing with the radio to the kids on my block using a flashlight as my microphone. My biggest influence overall in music is Elton John. He was the first artist I saw in concert, Denver, Co. supporting the Captain Fantastic & the Brown Dirt Cowboy album. Other influences include The 5th Dimension, Rare Earth David Bowie, The Sweet, Steely Dan, Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, The Doobie Bros., The Who, Yes, Chicago, The Chi-Lites, KISS, Neil Young, Three Dog Night, Rick Derringer, The Commadores, Carol King, Neil Diamond, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Steve Miller Band, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, Barry White, Queen (2nd concert), War, Grand Funk Railroad, The Guess Who, The O'Jays, Foreigner, Rufus/Featuring Chaka Khan, Sly & the Family Stone, Van Halen, Rush & a lot more! You can see music covers I've done on my You Tube channel found on the social media link page.
