I am a 60 year old singer/songwriter from Alaska Michigan in Caledonia Township. I am getting good at losing with dignity, keeping a good attitude despite odds against me, and willing to take risks despite potential negative outcomes. I have no regrets about my past, am fully engaged in the present and am excited about the future! I have been playing guitar for over 40 years and only recently began writing my own music. My music has been influenced by "Bach to Rock" and I am an avid listener of our local Community Radio station WYCE 88.1 FM and have been influenced and convinced that the local music scene could support many more music artists. I participated in the 2015, 2016 Artprize competitiona with my music entry "Mackinac" and "For my Jenny" and had a blast! Since then, I have taken on the stage name "Buddy Wally" and am working on a lots of "new music". I will let you (the music listeners) tell me what you think of my Eclectic Mix of music. I'm looking forward to playing live for you this year and hope to see you at Artprize! You only live once! Seize the moment and live your life to the fullest! I am! BTW my song for this year "Its only Rock-N-Roll" is a high energy fast paced rockabilly song about frustration of being a musician singer-song writer at a later stage in life with very little support from those around me who just can't seem to understand how at age 55 you could start writing music and want to form a band. It is possible! I am living proof! Give me a chance, a few moments of your time, and I will ROCK your world............and you might even like it! CYA
