Hello from Long Beach, CA, USA

My street name is TK Major.

I've been hanging around the Internet jawboning about music, songwriting, and music tech since the dial-up BB days of the late 1980s.

My general info page is here: www.tkmajor.com/tk

My folkie/songwriter blog is here: www.AYearOfSongs.org

I've worked in a number of genres; in the 90s I did live shows as both an ambient electronica live echo looper and as a folkie singer-songwriter. My 'produced' song work in those days tended to postmodern mutant pop with an emphasis on synths and electronic beats. But, with the rise of pop electronica, with the threat of actually working in a popular vein raising its ugly head, I found myself drifting back to my early love of folk, blues, and other acoustic forms. (OK, so now the popularity of Americana is pressing on me... where can a poor boy go to avoid making music in popular genre?  ;) )

It's good to see you here @blue2blue . Having familiarized myself with your music I think you'll find this to be a good place for a bit more jawboning.

Take a look around and then pull up a chair and set a while.

Had a listen to "Don't ask a Fool...." - lovely easy sound.. I agree with @Leonard Scaper - I think you might like it round these parts....
