  1. When you're creative, you do it for you. You can only hope others enjoy what you've done. In 2012 I wrote a fantasy novel called "The Crystal Keeper". It's an easy read like The Hobbit but more epic like LOTR, and is all of $.99 cents on Amazon. Still needs more editing but oh well. My readers are mostly from Asia. Music is my real passion though. Here's the cover of my band's first album released a few weeks ago. It's been called hard rock and/or classic heavy metal and listeners have said it sounds similar to Judas Priest, Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold and Ozzy. The good news is that it's been downloaded around 1000 times and has received an average rating of 4.5 of 5 stars from various sites. The bad news is that most of those downloads have been "stolen" using BitTorrent. We really just want people to enjoy it but those 1000 downloads would have covered what we paid for the studio out of our own pockets. We do get $.004 per stream - wow! Gonna keep the day job. Anyway, you can stream it on most platforms including the most popular Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora. You can also purchase and download it on iTunes or Amazon. I also have cd's I can mail out as well. If you like it or just want to support us by getting it, please use our website where we will get 100% of the profit. Best tracks imo - "Too Complicated", "Do It For Yourself".
  2. As a 6'5" fellow as well... My current dog is a Boerboel, a South African Mastiff. I think I will get him certified as an emotional support dog. Just thinking about it brings up such difficult emotions. (sniff, sob)
  3. IMG_2144.MOV Not the best quality but the studio can be a bit dark. No, I don't dance around and make faces when I'm recording but it's fun to screw around. I'd rather play guitar, but I handle bass as well. Hope it takes you laugh!
  4. Yes, I was young once. But the old lion still roars! Lol
  5. I am listening to me! Well, the band is "SoulBeast". Seriously though, I know our music may not be everyone's style but please check us out. I have currently put up 4 of our songs on our website and we have 3 more done that I release in the coming weeks.
  6. Thanks guys. whether you like it or not, I'd appreciate any promotion of it you could send friends. Yes, I miss my hair - lol but getting old. You have the right spelling Pas and say Hi to Caryn from me. (Robyn is doing great and very happy!)
  7. Any hard rock fans, please check us out at You can hear them on Spotify as well, or go to our Facebook page and give us a "like"! We have our first 3 songs complete and 4 more in the hands of our producer for mixing and mastering. We plan to head back into the studio in April and if all goes well our full album will be released in June. You can still hear, and purchase if you like, the 3 songs we have done and I will be adding more as the producer gets them done. Our artist is on his 3rd upgrade in the development of our logo. Here is the the latest---can't wait to see it in color!
