One day I was holding open house in the retirement community of Sun City Palm Desert when the owner walked in and told me how he met his wife at a singles club there called "Solos." I was facinated by his stories of passionate soap operas among the members. But the title is really more of a double entendre in that regard. Most of the people who live there are swingers in one sense only...they swing a golf club. Golf is by far the most popular social activity there..that and just enjoying life to the fullest...and what's life without a little romance? The people who live in Sun City are also of the generation to appreciate Big Band Swing music. Having been schooled by a big band drummer it is part of my roots too. I look forward to one day recording a big band arrangement of the tune.
By most standards I am a "Master" at Residential Real Estate. For most clients that's all they need to know. But part of what makes a salesperson good at what they do is their ability to empathize with others. This ability is proportionate to the depth of their personal life experience. The deeper and more diverse this experience the greater the number of people they can relate to and the better a salesperson they will be.
Conversely, by most standards I would be considered an “Amateur” Musician, but if you want to know about the depth of my life experience beyond my Real Estate credentials, listen to my music.
Music was probably my first career choice out of school. But that was 40 years ago. Almost another lifetime. Though I never could make a living at it, while finding success in other fields I acquired the experiences I wrote about in these songs. They are in effect a journal of my life in California for the past 40 years.
Leonardo Da Vinci once said "A work of art is never finished, only abandoned." Some of these recordings are the first and only takes recorded on a hand recorder but even the more recent studio recordings are still being tinkered with. For now this is all I've got. I hope you will forgive the inadequacies of my musicianship to hear the messages and emotions within them.
If you are a Musician/Realtor interested in putting together a band to perform locally for charity give me a call.
