"Music Is Medicine For My Soul"
I hope I am answering this right! But, the vision of my work is creating music that people can relate to in their lives. I usually write about things in my life that make me happy, or make me mad, or make me sad. It usually releases stress. The lyrics are written from my everyday experiences in life. I try to write from what I feel in my heart. Some are good, some are really bad. I can sometimes polish the bad ones if they are telling an interesting story. Performing is also a big part of my picture. Watching people dancing and sometimes singing your lyrics is such a high that keeps you going year after year. It's the gas that keeps my motor runnin'. I love the fans.
I think when I first started performing, being the simple musician and playing school gigs, 4 H Fairs, small clubs, and seeing the fans smile and having a good time, and tell the band they kicked butt, was the high of music.
I try to tell many different messages or stories that someone out there can relate to. My stories change with my life experiences. I try to say, "Think of that poor middle class man. Remember who your friends are and what they mean. What about that special niece that was killed in a car wreck? What about the boss that made you mad? What about your wife and beautiful kids?" These are just a few of my topics I like talking about and have talked about in songs.
