Getting really tired of this Phoenician Summer heat, so as I have always felt people should have the Christmas spirit all year round regardless of the holidays, I did this last night. Glad tidings to all!

if Booker T., Michel Jackson and Pink Floyd had a love child, it would sound something like this. In my mind anyway! Have a great weekend everyone!

suffering with chronic bronchitis has not allowed me to sing for over a month. I need to Breathe. Wrote and recorded this last night.It's a bit heavy for what I normally do but it conveys my anger at the moment of being unable to feel well ,sing and gig. hopefully soon, I'll be able to add lyrics and vox. Be well my friends and enjoy Breathing.

I have always loved this song and so many of Cat Stevens' tunes. It is by no means a perfect cover, but it's my take on it and it was fun to do. It's message is still clear and as meaningful as it was 43 years ago. Please enjoy and much love and respect to all.

Wow, I've been away for a while(no computer!) and I 've got a lot of catching up! It's great to see so many more great musicians on here. My youngest daughter is off to college and I've been dealing with those emotions and this song came from it. They grow so fast! I hope you enjoy it! Much Aloha....John

Growing up in Hawaii in the 70's and being a surfer, I've always loved the "mellow" side as well as the "heavy" kinds of music equally. This song is my tribute to those endless days at the beach and in the ocean where I always found peace. Inspired by Curtis Mayfield, Carlos Santana and those whacky "Beach Party" movies where Frankie and Annette are walking along a moonlit beach with the waves gently crashing on the shore behind them. I hope you enjoy! Peace...John

Hey John! Thanks for the friendship.....Aloha right back! Are you in Hawaii? I lived there for many years and have family on Oahu!
Posted on Wed., Apr. 24, 2013 - 6:25 AM


 

Well, thank you! I grew up on Oahu and lived there until 1999. Am now in Scottsdale,AZ. I remember seeing Manhattan Transfer at Waikiki Shell and was blown away by your great voices and incredible harmonies! I was a crazy hard-rocker, but had and have a deep appreciation for jazz and all kinds of music. Probably more so these days! Love your video of the Trummy Young tune. I had the honor of meeting him once back in Hawai'i. He was a very cool dude! Take care Erin and Mahalo for your friendship!

I wrote this song shortly after my mother passed away from cancer. She was in hospice and was mostly incoherent and heavily sedated and just wasn't letting go. I kept telling her "it's okay" just go on, we'll be fine, and things like that, not even knowing if she was hearing me.
she suddenly opened her eyes, looked directly at me and smiled. She passed on the next day and this song poured out of me. To me, music is a form of therapy and an outlet for channeling my feelings which are often times, hard to express just verbally. This song is dedicated to my Mom and to all of you who have lost someone special to you. Peace to All.

I hope everyone made it through April Fools Day without being overly fooled! The jokes on me as I'm having a severe seasonal allergy attack and I'm to take part in a benefit concert tonight for The Relay for Life American Cancer Society. My voice is like a few steps lower and coughing like a 90 yr old chain smoker! Oh well, the show must go on! Peace to all and Happy Spring!

I hope everyone is having a great day and wish you all a great weekend filled with p-nut butter-chocolate Easter eggs! I hope it's okay to post this cover of the mighty Zep's "The Rain Song" that I did. It's my favorite song by them. I don't really play keys so It's not even close to the original, but it's from my heart. "upon us all, a little rain must fall"..Peace
