Dr. Michael A. Gray

I have played strictly for my own private pleasure (guitar-presently acoustic for the most part) for approximately 45 years on-and-off.
What occurred, and I believe is essential for one to develop musically-there must be a motivating factor(s) that leads the musician to give the necessary time and effort to becoming competent (usually the love of someone or that something is so important to the musician). Anyway- about 2+ years ago my motivation occurred and, judging about the songs I've written and composed -I don't have to say anymore for you to have a good idea what was my motivation.
Well, even though the initial motivation didn't bear fruit-once I asked God to take charge and realize I had to both depend on and allow for God's love and wisdom to send an angel- AND - He does in His time (which, is always perfect).
However, to truly gain acceptance from the public- they must be able to sense that your words (and music) comes from the heart. This is why I won't waste songs typically on pickup trucks, good in those jeans, on the dance floor, etc. - opening up my heart (which is often difficult in putting self out there) is, to me, my way of serving others. If I can take you to one of your private places then I've connected- If I can help you to move through that which is difficult, then I have served you well. God wants us all to be servants. Thank you and God's blessings on you. Michael A. Gray
