RECORD / MUSIC PRODUCER /PRODUCER
I have been playing the guitar for 42+ years and still enjoy 'making' music. Have been working on a solo album (From the Heart of an Otherwise Twisted Man) for 6 years now with no completion date in view as the money end of things is slow. Some of the songs from the album (cd) can be heard on Jango.com/ Noblecheque and as I tell everyone I get involved with musically - I'm just a guitar player, nothing more, (the best one on my block......I just happen to live on a very small block).
Started playing music while in junior high school in the 5th grade as a trumpeter. Had 2 very good music teachers who instilled a love for music in me as a youngster- Mr. Price and Mr. Hinton. I believe that playing the trumpet is where I learned what little I know about melody lines and have tried my best to incorperate that knowledge into song form.
I am married with 5 children, all of whom also play one or more instruments (a fact I am very proud of). Currently looking for a 'day job' to support my family and also my music.
The band name I go under or by is "NOBLECHEQUE". First thought of this name while in high school, but never told anyone. Wanted to wait until I formed my own musical group. Funny thing is, I am the 'musical group' as rhythm guitarist, bass guitarist, and lead guitarist, along with the help of a friend (Monty) on drums as the first recordings I had done were done with 'drum loops' and Monty thought he could spice things up a bit.
When I do a 'live' show, I have to play along with backing tracks on cd so people will be able to hear the song as intended, sort of a draw back, but I have had some meager succes with the idea. So, if you want to hear some of what I have done (mind you...it is NOT mixed or mastered by anyone who knows what they are doing......mostly me); check out www.Jangomusic.com/Noblecheque, you might find something you would like.
