Piano and vocal: Easy listening love song. / CLICK HERE to learn more!
I got a late start in life learning music at age 17. I had asked for piano lessons and a piano from my mother when I was age 5. The piano did come through my dad at around age 10, but given we lived in an apartment; I couldn’t practice because my mother was telling me the piano was too loud. She thought I had lost interest in the piano, but in truth I never did. I just was trying to be good and honor the neighbors as requested. Still, I agonized for each day I could not touch the piano sitting in our apartment each day.
By age 15, I was given a guitar by one of the nuns at St. Francis of Assisi Church in North Hollywood one night after one of the prayer meetings I attended to help out with the music ministry. Sister Joan was the gal who gave me her guitar. That guitar is with me to this day some 35 years later. I called the guitar “Joani”.
Once I got my state scholarship, I chose Loyola University at age 17 as my University of choice. I majored in their technical communication arts and sciences program and also double majored in music to catch up on lost time. By the time I was hitting my mid twenties, I had been writing many songs and instrumental works as I tried to catch up on lost time in my studies. Then I had my first NDE and got a life’s review of my life showing that my life had gone terribly wrong and that I had been destined for the entertainment industry and the music industry much earlier in life. I was encouraged not to come back, but did to help my parents and brother.
These days, after convalescing from long term illness, I find myself going through my old reel to reel tapes so as to transfer them to digital for remix and sales on my CDbaby artist page which is growing in offerings these days. You can hear samples of my works on those pages or on TheAstroboy9 channel on YouTube.
This one song I’m letting go in it’s entirety, knowing people seem to think everything is free in life and do pirate stuff off of YouTube which is why I only offer samplings of my works on my channel, to encourage people to support me through sales; given my current day disability.
So here is “Your Song” done some 30 years ago with me on electronic piano and vocal as I show you photos of that life long passed at places where I would perform. This was before my health started to fail at age 27 which came from bad food I ate one day and then got hit with again at age 37 which kept me house bound these past 18 years.
