Back in my early 20s, I was practicing bass three hours a day, playing in a band with a drummer who practiced six hours a day and a guitarist who was one the "up and coming" lead guitar players of my home town. Plus, I was writing a song every day. I had this dream of "making it" without really knowing what "making it" meant. Stuff happened. Other priorities got in the way. I spent some time acting professionally, then went back to school, then had to work a few years to pay off the schooling. I didn't actually get around to *recording* my first CD until my *late* 20s. Now, in my forties I'm realizing that I'm too old to be an "up and coming" rock star. Not that I'd want to be. Not really. My tastes are too far outside the mainstream and I don't really want to change to fit the popular taste.
In 2013, I started recording and performing under the name One Finite Monkey. For the first time, I'm playing all of the instruments myself. On the first OFM CD, I played ten instruments. I have two discs up on NoiseTrade for donation (http://noisetrade.com/onefinitemonkey).
Currently, I'm all over Botswana doing musical production projects. When I have time to do my own music, I'll post a bit here.
