Songwriting came to me while I was in Nursery School learning Woody Guthrie songs and power swinging at the playground on Sullivan Street. Drifting into me like a life tide softly, surging like the wind past my ears. Song Writing. Being the song creator was unattainable but drew me in tight and forever. Walking to Childrens aid society with my mom clutching my hand I would dig my heels in and stop her dead in her tracks to stare at a kid with a guitar, 8x11 glossy in front of the Purple Onion or Night Owl, or Gerdies Folk City. A kid with a conductors cap and a twinkle in his eye just a little older than me with curly hair. It was overwhelming. The power of his guitar radiating through the promo shot into my frontal cortex like a bolt of lightning. Thats when I committed. Thats when I uncontrollably and evermore committed to the power of song writing. And when I was 11 my father made friends with him. Bob. And he was in my house talking about making a pirate movie. I was struck dumb.
Later that year, I bled all over my Martin 0018 in Fishermans Wharf tryng to get at least as loud as my conga player. I was playing the hits of the day, dreaming of my own songs.
