A lot of people have discovered a sort of secret about me. I dabble in music. It’s just the thing that keeps me grounded. I even created a CD of my music, and people keep asking how they can get it. Well here it is. If you care to download the music, please do. It’s free. Enjoy and just a word of caution…don’t operate machinery while listening to it! It’s mellow! Below is the inside of the jacket cover so you can see what got me to playing music. Happy listening!
It all started for at 8 years old with a tiny little kid’s keyboard that my parents got me as a consolation present when my pet rabbit had its neck wrung by a neighborhood dog.
Later, whenever I was sent to my room for being bad, I would dink around on the keyboard and somehow figure out Christmas songs. I remember how I used to imagine being able to play every single instrument of the orchestra – at the same time! Quite an imagination. But then again, I was bad a lot so I had a good bit of time to think and play on that keyboard.
My orchestra was make believe, of course. And, I still think it’s the most powerful thing I ever did – make believe. I like to think that everyone else did the same thing with their own fantasy. Somewhere along the way, most of us abandoned those dreams. I decided to finally play with mine again…just because.
So here it is, a few too many decades late while I mustered the courage to do a CD, and a lot of messing around with music later…here it is. I’m not a trained musician; I mostly pretend at it. And, I didn’t fix up the music to make it perfect. It’s my hope that you may once again make believe, too. I hope you do. Enjoy. Scott Halford
