I have a small project studio located in Nashville. All my music coming from this studio is under the group name of the Stoneage Rockets. The back story to the music is that years ago I was involved with Power Trios and had this idea. If a power trio could be so sonically full could a power duo be just as full. To make a long story short I went about it the wrong way by over complicating the music. Then along came the White Stripes and there was the ah-ha moment. It was about the simplicity. Add to that my all time favorite musician is the late great JJ Cale and you get the idea. The Stoneage Rockets music is pared down and very stylized.
Artwork
I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I do remember being facinated by how chrome used to change and shine and at first all I wanted to do was to be able to draw chrome. This led to my love of painting cars. A love I have to this day. I have started on a project of painting many different car collections. There will be a 1950's collection a classic car collection a race car collection there is even going to be a custom car collection. All the paintings will be watercolors on 11" x 15" heavy paper. There are so many great cars I don't think I will ever run out of cars to paint.
I've had writings published but this is my first attempt at a novel or series. I need all the help I can get so I will be printing excerpts from time to time and I hope to get your feedback. I have always been a fan of history and like all history buffs have had the 'what if' moments. What would history be like if this or that had happened instead of what actually happened. Tanasi is such a story.
Tanasi is a fictional history of an American Nation that survived all obsticles and had over 4000 years of progress as a settled Nation of farmers. They had the time to develop technology and enough experience with adversaries to fight back the new people from Europe. I used the Soultrean people because they were most likely to have enough immunity from small pox to survive the coming of the Spanish.
Performance Schedule
For the past few years we have had to deal with family health issues that have for all intents made touring no longer an option. Luckily for me I found a website that allows me to get my live performance fix once a week. It's called StreetJelly and although it's not the greatest and nobody will get rich playing there is still fun and has a decent community. Most importantly you don't have to pay anything to listen. The performers get tips, which people can buy via PayPal but you don't need to do that to just listen.
