and we'll make the jump from, You know, you're working. We always amazing people and everything, but it some point you're like, Okay, I'm gonna do my own thing. I'm a, you know, do my own songs and when to do Like, how do you kinda like, or you still doing both? Are you still kind of going out with other people and doing your. Yes, I am. I still do I guess we'll play with other people by Right now. I'm really focused on on my own thing. Um, the, I haven't been writing songs I when I was still living in West Virginia. I started writing my own stuff in a sense that, you know I am I have four CDs of singer-songwriter. I write songs and I go right with a lot of great people, And I love pop music or, you know, music with a verse in a chorus. And I love the you know, I I love I love to be able to sing along to a good Melody and and um, and I also sing harmonies on with other people. Uh, so I was doing my own saying and what was happening there was that we had a band together, uh, in West Virginia That was We were really big fish in a really kind of not change pond. So um, we were travelling quite a bit And we were out playing and. But we had three singers of which, uh, the other singers were writing, You know, writing bear stuff. I was reading my stuff. And I I I just sort of felt at some point. I really if I was gonna do this, I really needed to pursue it. So I ran away and I ran as far away as I could run, which was England England for Westerly. It was I like to say that I've lived in all of us Third World countries. You know, it's like, Oh, isn't that we've got? We've got, you know, uh, West Virginia London and New York has got them all covered, you know. So. Um, anyhow I I um, I lived there for a couple of years, but it was really like starting over, uh, rats because a lot of people there had never heard of some of the people that the brilliant people I'd played with on mountain stage. So. Um, but it was great because I I was still trying to develop my voice and which way I wanted to go myself. So it was, you know, is sort of my stepping out period two two to really do my own thing. And um, and then from there moved to New York. And you know, I I've found my home here because I like to say, you know, I got my we've got our little bubble here in New York and on our little island. And, you know, It's a great place And I know a lot of. People here, uh, from the music community and people are very supportive in our little community here. So it's our little community of New York City. So, um, argue then I, I youth teachers well or I used to I don't have time anymore, and I am very happy to say, I did love to teach. I did love my students, but, you know, I love playing music live I've been really lucky, uh, lucky in that sense. And I started, uh, I have a business called over Dubs strings dot com that, uh, people send me their tracks and I'm, you know, I've had a home studio now for years, And so I'm I'm quite good at layering And I can send people back up like a pretty much a, a full symphony. So I and and, and then I never have to get dress, you know See here. Robe, Yeah I won't Horta journey dragging a bikini But um, you know, what can you records this? And the uh Can you film at too? I get that all the time, like, Oh, sure round get right on that. Uh, but uh, yeah, so that back, keep that keep that's been keeping me busy, but it also still I still I still play with people. Uh, I just got off of a Tour with a guy named Mundy. Um, and you Wendy Wi who he's, uh, he's an Irish rocker. He's actually quite well known, you know, in in Europe and, you know, especially in Ireland. But, um, I played the White House with him about a year and a half ago.

Um, because we're I'm doing this interview, So thanks to your Thank you for your publicist for a sending that's me. And, um, it's so what made you was just time like what, What made you go like, Okay, I wanted to do something instrumental. Well, um Yeah, we're really excited about this fun. Um, I've always played a couple Well, I went one in particular, I had this violence, So so solo that I've played live And then I recorded it on a previous album. And um, I just kinda feel like I know. Did to push myself a little bit. Uh, I've been I've been recording for other people and playing with other people and playing things that I wasn't doing on my own music. No. Um, what started it was I got together with a guy named Steve Good Bory who is, Um, he he played with Cindy Lauper for years and um, and I just real quick. This new offer thing was, uh, you know, I played with her for a couple of years I toward with her for a couple of years and got to do quite a few tourist with her. So I'm still in touch with a lot of the people from the band and their girl great people. And um, but Steve and I got together two with the idea of Let's ride in instrumental, you know, have no preconceptions. So let's just write something with no pesky lyrics you know, just just go for it. And um, Steve his writing tends to be, um. No, I wouldn't say orchestral rock but it it is. You know, he he's quite good. He's been doing a lot of writing a lot of instrumentals for his wife's ballet company, which is called Ballet's with a twist. And he's he's really, really smart, really smart. And I knew he would challenge me. So I just wanted to push myself as a player to play things that I wouldn't normally play because when you're playing for me, I I I try not to I'm try not to play so flashy that it's like, you know, on somebody is somebody else project that, Yeah, You know, and you don't necessarily even do it on your project. You just want to play what's right for the song. That's what's important to me. And um, so uh, Steven I got together, we wrote the first song with the idea. Let's kinda do a jam thing, but still have structure to still have averse and a chorus and still have something that you're you're can latch onto. So it's not a you know. Now I can I don't know if I could say wakes us, but it's not that you know It's nice flash last year. That's right. They still. Yeah, it's still leaves, You know, easy on the ears and still rocks and and this catchy and it had to make your foot still tap. So, um, we did that that song, which is called light This candle. And then we wrote another one called Red Dog l- little bit later. And then I wrote a track with a good friend of mine and Ian Hatton and in used to play in the ban Bonham with Jason Bonham. Oh, And um, so and that's a song, uh, raise the roof and radio and proof. Let's go ahead.
