I enjoy writing catchy pop songs and arranging them. By the way, in my Latest News, I look for fun things to talk about: trivia, geek tricks, and I enjoy featuring you and your songs.

Ride the Wave!

Hey, Catsters!
Corporate profits were at a record high last quarter of 2023. Yet inflation still hits us. It is because the corporate monopolies controlled by the super rich gouge us at the supermarket and other places by controlling prices and keeping them high. Let's get together and stop it by voting blue across the board this November! Ride the Wave...the Blue Wave!

Hi Mr. John Walradt. Thank you for listening to my most recent uploaded song "I PLAY". Your time is always very appreciated, and thank you for the generous rating. Like many of my songs, that were conceived in the last 2 decades, I am on a roll so to speak and hope to have more of them completed and on line in the near future, along with a mix of new creations. I wish you the best of success in your musical creations and other pursuits.
your friend always!

Hi, Pete Ben-jamin! You're very much welcome!

The concept and content of "Play" follows your quest to write meaningful songs to inspire healing and harmonize the earth. That's a wonderful life's work. I'd like to see a much bigger place for the work you do; that is, a larger audience to not only listen and feel the songs you write, but for something to think about and inspire to act on.
Right now my wife, Lora, and I are in process of selling our condominium (or condo-minimum, as I call it...heh, heh) located within too much activity, then to move to a town near Redlands, California, which should be much more peaceful and less repressive.
More later, my friend.

Hi again John. Thanks for your insight and the professional advice/direction. I'm going to look for such a place as a platform with a much larger audience. Right now, besides the broadjam community I am a VIPer member of a community called Home Studio Corner run by Joe Gilder. I am taking courses in recording, mixing and mastering to improve those areas in my musical efforts.
I hope you and your wife find a peaceful place to live. Phoenix is quite busy and large. My wife, Redonna, our puppy Cheyenne and I moved from Tucson to Jefferson Georgia in 2018 for a much needed escape with the hope of finding a peaceful retreat. It was perfect and the best 2 year vacation from a long list of family deaths and sadness. After 2 years we moved back, but to Marana instead, not by choice but by accident, plus I had a lot of clients wanting me and us back. Even though my very large family has been in Tucson since 1912, we are always looking for a better location, or locations while traveling the country. Being on the move seems to suit us as there's always new places to see and experience. I know you both will find the perfect place just waiting for you to show up.
Thanks again!!!
Pete

You're welcome, Jeana. Your tunes are always a beautiful listen. I don't usually get on Broadjam much anymore. Just enough to spend a couple of minutes. I've been spending more time working on getting out of Phoenix and some time making videos using artificial intelligence, which still has lots of glitches!

You're much welcome, Pete. I have several songs to complete as well and I'm working on one about global warming called "If the World Ends" and giving it a Roxy Music treatment as in their song, "Avalon." I also did some fingerpicking guitar and just found out it just doesn't mesh. Back to the drawing board! You really come up with beautifully layered compositions and a flair for pleasing melodies that have not so common chord progressions. That's a great thing to have! You also have thought provoking lyrics. Of my songs, my favorites are "Stay Here Now," "Far From Home," and "Raindrop Soul" which I consider my most beautiful song. A lot of people like "We Didn't Have Time Enough." If you have some you'd like me to listen to first, give me a list. I'll be happy to do that! Happy 2023 winter holidays to you as well!
