II write quirky songs and poetry mainly paranormal / horror themed as just a hobby and send them to various radio stations websites / for possible publishing or airplay, i take the songs and poems as a bit of fun and i hope the listeners do too
Although mainly the songs are recorded in one single take so the songs are in a raw demo state but have been played on over 500 various radio stations and podcasts all over the world.
