About Drivebye

Two stents as lead vocalist in early bands one as a teen in Clearwater Fl (Just Us), the second as a young adult in the service in Tahkli Thailand (Kaleidoscope) ... didn't take either long to figure out they could do a whole lot better and fired me.

(expired link). bill helped nurture the love for music and soon graduated University of Miami 1974 with a musical merchandising degree. Never used it .... taught guitar, took photographs worked in a Bowling pro shop for a few years eventually ending up in retail sales.

Final life's career stage spent in business to business sales .... all the while keeping a guitar handy for self amusement, never a profession.

Retired just a year ago and was prompted to try and write, an urge I have resisted my entire infatuation with the art ...... my very first attempt was Her Ghost Waltz heard here and the second attempt was The Last Sea Horse.

My only hope here is that I can expose not my preformance talents, as I recognize that they are minimal, not my recording/engineering skills, as these were recoded in my spare bedroom on a Mac mini with the minimal amount of equipment and experience but ........

That somehow, somewhere, sometime there may be a receiver tuned into just the right frequency to which my soul transmits and can appreciate my existence even if just long enough to appreciate a 4:00 minute attempt at making musical art.

I have chosen not to select download music on this site because of the limited number of songs this site allows as well as only allowing lower resolution mp3 files. For those interested in downloading my music it is available for download on the web site Bandcamp by typing into your browser:

I'm halfway through my latest project (6 out of 12) and have hit a creative wall so to speak. I have also reached the point in my current post of my friend's three originals where the plays have dropped off to a trickle which leads me to the decision to replace them. What with is my current dilemma! If you enjoyed the writing of my friend Lefty Dave Smith and long to hear more as I am oft to do please check out a bunch more of his original work, performed by the author himself, at his page on Reverb Nation. Just search there for Lefty Dave Smith Music.

I will now reload three songs at a time from past writings and posts until I am once again visited with the spirit of creativity. I have decided to tie them together with some common element like theme or message and the first three will be linked by a similar positive outlook. I feel that the last four years may have been one of the darkest periods in America"s 250 year history and a stain on our common souls. These songs are hopeful that we have emerged from internally focused energy andmay once again return to the realization that we are all one humanity with a vast reserve of love for our fellow man and an empathy for his plight.

The first song is basically obvious in meaning .... simply put, find the positive in all and use what's available to you to get through the rough spots. It's called Lemonade Kool Aide.

The second entry is a more personal semi autobiographical piece about hanging in there and turning disappointment into success. Around every dark and dismal dorner you may run smack dab into a smile. It is called Some smiles begin as frowns.

The final piece is a metaphor for the entire dark period from which I am hopeful we will rebirth ourself, refreshrd and anew .... much like Winter turns to Spring and it is called The lamb of Spring.

Please enjoy and I will upload fresh new songs as soon as I am able.
