I CAN REMEMBER BACK AS FAR BACK AS AGE 5, WHEM MY MOTHER WENT TO THE FIELD TO PICK COTTON AND I WOULD RIDE ON HER SACK WHILE SHE SANG LIKE A BIRD.  I SUSPECT THAT WAS WHERE I GOT MY FIRST LOVE OF MUSIC.  I GREW UP LISTENING TO CLASSIC COUNTRY AND OLD TIME GOSPEL MUSIC.  WHEN I WAS ABOUT FOURTEEN, I WAS INTRODUCED TO THE GUITAR AND STARTED PLAYING FOR MY CLASSMATES AT ASSEMBLIES AND SCHOOL FUNCTIONS.  LATER , AT AGE 21 I FRONTED FOR A DANCE BAND AND PLAYED ALL OVER NEW MEXICO.  WHEN THE HOOTENANNY CRAZE CAME ALONG I PLAYED IN MANY COFFEE HOUSES AND BEGAN TO DEVELOP MY REPERTOIRE, OF COUNTRY, FOLK AND GOSPEL.   I WAS FORTUNATE AS A YOUNG MAN TO BE INTRODUCED TO A COUNTRY ICON NAMED STUART HAMBLEN THROUGH A FRIEND AND ONE OF HIS DAUGHTERS. 

I RECORDED MY FIRST COMMERCIAL RECORD WITH THEM.  IT WAS ABOUT THAT TIME I STARTED WRITING SONGS AND MOVED MY FAMILY TO HOLLYWOOD WHERE I WROTE OVER 100 SONGS IN ABOUT A 10 YEAR PERIOD.  THIS IS 

WHERE I FIRST MET RED STEAGALL WHO PUBLISHED SOME OF MY SONGS.  AS FATE WOULD HAVE IT I HAD SOME SERIOUS DISCORD IN MY FAMILY AND I MOVED BACK TO NEW MEXICO.  I NEVER WROTE ANOTHER SONG FOR 25 YEARS, BUT CONTINUED TO PERFORM REGULARLY.   THEN I BEGAN TO GO TO COWBOY POETRY AND MUSIC GATHERINGS AND I KIND OF GOT MY GROOVE BACK, WITH A SONG I WROTE ESPECIALLY FOR MY WIFE, JANET, 

CALLED  "WALTZ OF THE RAINBOWS' AND CONTINUED FROM THERE WITH  "ECHOES FROM THE CANYON,  

"ROSCOE DINWITTY DROVE THE CHUCKWAGON"  "BALLAD OF JULIO ROBLEDO,  AND "OH ANTONIA"  THEN IN

2014 I WROTE  "THE DAY GOD KISSED US ALL GOODBYE" A SONG ABOUT A TRAIL DRIVE THAT EVEN GOD WOULDN'T GO ON.  THIS SONG WAS ONE OF 5 NOMINATED FOR SONG OF THE YEAR BY THE ACADEMY OF WESTERN MUSIC.  I AM A LIFETIME MEMBER OF THE INTERNATIONAL WESTERN MUSIC ASSOCIATION. 

I ALSO BUILD WORLD CLASS CUSTOM TURQUOISE INLAID JUMBO ACOUSTIC GUITARS WHICH YOU WILL SEE EXAMPLES ON MY GUITAR PAGE, AND SOME OF THE WMA ARTISTS THAT OWN THEM.  I CONTINUE AT AGE 78 TO PERFORM AT FESTIVALS, FAIRS, HOUSE CONCERTS, ASSISTED LIVING CENTERS, ALZHIEMER UNITS, AND I HOPE TO CONTINUE WRITING MY COWBOY MUSIC WHEN IT COMES TO ME, WHICH IT DOES NOT COME AS EASY AS IT USED TO.  YOU WILL FIND EXAMPLES OF MY SONGS ON MY SOUNDCLOUD PAGE, SO FEEL FREE TO PERUSE MY ENTIRE SITE  AT YOUR LEISURE AND CATCH MY PERFORMANCES WHEN YOU CAN.  AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL FOR LISTENING TO MY RANTS.
