As you may have read in my “About” page, I am an amateur musician, and have worked with a number of professionals in my area doing their photos.

One of these people is also an accomplished studio engineer and producer (we worked extensively with Jack for our most recent music project) and he put me in touch with a local Texas singer-songwriter who was at work on a new CD project himself.
