End of Days…Summer that Is

So, it’s been a while since my last post. Crazy summer heat has slowed us all down somewhat… at least here in the MidWest. Time to play outside while we can, enjoy the wealth of activities that are all seemingly crammed into a few short months before we get our wool undies back out of storage!

Music festivals were everywhere, water activities, plenty of food and drink to last through our ensuing hibernation. I only hope that the distraction of the upcoming presidential election will sustain me as I get ready to hit it hard musically during the traditionally “slow” winter months ahead.

I’ve been enjoying a recent creative start with a new writing partner, Terry Abrahamson. Terry and I go way back to the days when I was a first call jingle singer in Chicago. He was a one-of-a-kind character who, as a freelance producer, showed up at various singing gigs of mine. He became a fan, and has been doggin’ me for quite a while to team up. His lyrics to I WILL BE YOUR LEATHER intrigued me enough to get us rollin’ down our current path. After a brief flirtation with a major corporate entity, we are still working on the best route to take with this great American motorcycle song. We believe it’s the next great biker hit!I Will Be Your Leather

Our second collaboration, THE ARMS OF MOTHER NATURE, is at the moment in the hands of Chuck Leavell and company in the songwriting contest at www.sing4the trees.com More on that as it unfolds.

Lastly, end of summer days has always been somewhat bittersweet for me as I celebrate my birthday at the end of August. As a kid, it meant that summer vacation was over and school was about to commence. Here’s to new beginnings!
