Im really sorry, but I just dont know where anything is anymore. Thanks for sending me "Along For the Ride" by Thom Harris.  He has since sent me his latest CD with a nice note.  I passed the CD on to the folks at the Crestline Theatre to have them listen and perhaps arrange a gig for THOM. I enjoyed the songs and his relaxed musical delivery.  If you speak to THOM tell him I received his letters and feel badly about not answering them.  I will soon.  Poor excuse but I've been so busy and preoccupied.  Please forgive me.  Howard

I suppose the answer is finding places who'll play you every week till you become a regular and dependable to the house.  Open mikes, hoots, gigs, anywhere you can present your wares.  Eventually the industry takes notice and signs you to a deal, especially if you're a singer songwriter performer who is willing to collaborate with other writers to create a minimum of 15 covered songs a year for the term of your deal (usually 3 years).  It can only be done in places like LA, NYC, London, where the tools of the trade are in abundance.  Ie: access to producers, studios, labels, publishers, managers, attorneys.  If you have to work parttime then keep it in your industry (film, tv, music, etc.).  There is no short cut to fame or wealth especially in fields where the competition is as fierce as it is.  You know the drill though so I shouldn't have to tell you, because you've already been there and back again.

The interest here is imperceptable.  No one really cares about that time when the world was mud luscious in a pretty how town.  Music and poetry abounded as did art and theatre.  Throngs of people were on the streets and in the cafe's while great artists played and sang their immortal music and created their own album covers with friends.
