Im trying to give the Ryders more and more and now I’m starting to learn how I can do it and continue to do it! Believe it or not almost everything I do, I do for you.  A song needs a listener.  The Ryders really are a big part of the songs story, maybe even the biggest part… This is just the truth.  Ive played these songs countless times, with bands, without, recorded and not, open mics, and producers, and some of the scariest places.  Ive played them well and horribly, drunk, stoned, and sober, and other drugs no doubt.  Ive played them tired and with all emotions.. and in many places and many different timezones.  Different continents.  Through many relationships, some that lasted and some that didn’t…They have been with me through good times and bad.. they have been beaten, torn, and wornout, and I’ve asked a lot of them over the years as far as healing…and all of them were written with truth in heart… also hope… and hopefully grace.

I don’t particularly like performing them but I do it for the song and the listener…I rarely blast a song when I’m alone.  Truth is i favor the quieter more intimate sound more in my “older” years…  Ive believed in these songs but just barely enough to be honest.  I have had to fight for them too… There is an entire industry with millions and millions of dollars and lots of hungry enteprenuear type people out there trying to take advantage of them…and you have to navigate the whole thing with discernment… I remember telling one guy that “I’ve fought and bled for these songs” and he said, “So have I”…ultimately you either choose the song or the trap.  He also said you have to make smart decisions…  I had three things going for me.  I was free and mobile and I had skydiving and contracting…

I’ve met a lot of great people along the way.. I guess you could say that Ive protected these songs and kept them, and still I am only a rider on the song itself… 

I love that about songs… they are timeless if they reach you then they will reach others, and long after we are gone…. when we birth songs together or when I bring an unfinished or just started song to you Ryders…I hope you know how special you are to the song itself… and to me… I’ve been a songwriter for over half my life… I’ve rarely shared the songs because of the depth… and now, you don’t only like them, you appreciate them as much as I did and still do.  It really means alot…

trust me when I say my circumstances since covid have been all over the place…I am not really in a place where I can let go and unleash… I haven’t even played my amp in well over a year… maybe even 2… I miss my amp guys, I miss my recording place and now it seems life is unfolding more… Im not in the best of health but, I’m still rolling…

Still though Ryders I am going to give y’all so much more… but I have to set everything up… Podcasts, Live Streams and notifications, YouTube Videos, and even teach a little about songwriting and hopefully help you in some way…and a touch of fb and Ig… and don’t forget the Ryder Rydeups!  Also Fishers of Men for those that want to go deeper..

Truth is, having you here on my email is the best because it is just me to you… That’s the safest way possible for both of us… But please understand you are always on my mind and there are lots of things happening… stay tuned…the ride continues… thank you for being you and for letting me be me… LOVE MY RYDERS!!!
