My love affair with music began sometime in the 1960s when I was about five years old, I went to my friend Scott's house and he played one of his sisters records for me it was Uncle Albert Admiral Halsey by Paul McCartney and Wings.
I was into this epic landscape of musical change and was instantly transfixed by the allure of something mystic and magical in the music.
Understand that I was only five at the time and the words, music and magic had a similar sound. In a similar meaning in my eyes, my understanding of magic was Felix the Cat pulling a trick out of his hat
So I asked my friend Scott how do they make the magic, he said “It's music and they use guitars.”
“Guitars?” I replied “What are those?” He then picked up another album, showing me a picture of one. It was one of the coolest things that ever seen and I knew it five years old I wanted one. That’s what began my love affair with the guitars, the bass, the drums, that magical music. The last two years I've grown, gone on to a few things like jamming with a couple guys and actually get paid to do it on a semi professional level which is something I'm very grateful for.
When I play the guitar, it is magic. I can feel the motion of the music coursing through me and as a conduit, bringing that magic to life, giving it its pulsation as the bass player to give it its heartbeat.
I've played a few live bands around town such as The Bobby Champion Band, Blue Midnight, Stevie Ochoa and others. I've had a great time being part of the West Texas music scene. Having so much fun as part of the West Texas music scene, I started filming our band and others as well, creating a website called basinbands.com
