Since childhood, music has been an integral part of my life.
Growing up in SE Texas, I was surrounded by local musical influence from Janis Joplin to George Jones, Mark Chesnutt, Tracy Byrd, and more.
Texas has bred so many great musicians but, the Beaumont area was equally as influential as Austin, Houston, and Dallas.
Now, at 50 years old and retired, I have found myself surrounded by pure musical talent of many genres and from all over the country.
Being involved in the planning and production of Veteran/First Responder fundraising activities, I have been fortunate to be surrounded by many great Veteran and First Responder fronted bands. Many of these artists have ties that run very deep in the music industry.
I am now beginning to dabble in production of music recording projects and music video production.
I can only hope to help bring the healing properties of music to the masses.
In 2022, a group of like minded Patriots came together to fund and produce a music video in honor of a close friend and US Army Vietnam war veteran and Congressional Medal of Honor recipient. After a very successful fundraising concert and auction in Silsbee, Texas, we planned and produced and filmed a music video for the Blackbird Anthem song, MOH, written for our friend.
With the funds raised, we were able to employ a well known director from New York and Cinemetographer from the Dallas area. All other support was in the form of donated man hours, props, and much more.
