The procrastination has ended and I finally built a social “home” for a portion of my own music library on ReverbNation . If you are already knew I was a composer and music producer, then simply click hear to visit my page, listen to music and, fingers crossed, help me spread the word .
I composed my first piece of music at age 10 and had originally planned to pursue a career in music. After several detours in life brought about by fear, insecurity, shyness, false starts and allot of trial/error I’ve spent the last 10 years putting myself and my music out there, mainly through my work in independent film. Nonetheless, music has been the greatest constant in my life and over the years and regardless of the path I was on, I’ve never stopped composing, writing and recording.
What I’m about to say may hopefully seem more fascinating after you listen to a few of 28 tracks presently posted, but to this day I’ve not made a single cent for my music, volunteering my services for each director/producer I’ve work with up this point… still it remains one of the most gratifying aspects of my life. I always tell people that if you go into film or music first and foremost to make money, you’re certainly going into it for the wrong reasons. But if you have a relentless passion, a devotion to your art and focused persistence then one day the opportunities will arise. This is where I’m at and why I feel the need to get this music out to a larger audience beyond my immediate network of collaborators.
As you’ll read in the bio section of my ReverbNation page , I believe there are things in life that we do because we have to… there are things in life we do because we can… and then there are things in our lives we do because we quite simply can’t not do it. For me… that’s music. SM
