hey, i made it into the reverbnation top ten blues artists for rockvale. this is really great because there aren't ten blues artists IN rockvale. but it's been a long hard struggle, and thank you fer puttin me over the top.
I am still hearing Popeye The Sailor Man in my head, so when
you talk Blues, I'm like, really? LOL. But hey, your picking
will take you anywhere my friend. Still, I cry every single
time you do that song!!! Dang, now it's in my head again. LOL.
Enjoy your Blues success, I will still hear your incredible
Cat Stevens like song rendering in my dreams. It inspires me
to write even better every time I start a song! Always,
Norine: Yeah. Basically I think 'blues' and 'bluegrass' are the
flavors of the moment. But since you know my repertoire, then you
know that I'm not any one of those or other genres. I just write
what comes down through the fog. I'm not even folk, except once in a
while. For a while I thought I might be Americana, since that
implied some sort of American-ness, but lately even that has seemed
to elude me. I could go on and on, and perhaps will. I do appreciate
the favorable comparison to Cat Stevens. See you in Tampa/St Pete in
March/April, I hope?
Then I get a note from some sweet person like Norine. And the sun comes out.
