“Creating music starts with a discovery, which leads into an exploration, which leads to the passion and love of creating music.” Rick Haynes

At a very young age I always knew that I loved music.

Born in Plainview Tx, moved to Lubbock Tx at the age of three, I would sit on my swing and make up songs. Music has been in my family for years, from my mother to my grandmother there was always music in the home. At the age of twelve I created a song called “Flutter of the Blue Jays”. I still remember sitting at the old dining room table and putting the song in a score form with my mom helping me write the score. Lubbock Tx was having a song writing contest and I was so excited about admitting my song I couldn’t sleep at all that night. I did not win the grand prize, but I did come in second place. After that the music took hold.

As in almost everyone’s lives, life takes you down a different path. But I never left sight of the goal I so loved as a child, an young adult to the grand age I am today. My love of playing keyboards and writing has done nothing but get stronger with each passing day. Every time I walk by a keyboard I to have play it. Sometimes it can get you in trouble, but not always.

The music I compose is a blend of progressive jazz/rock combination. As being a trombone player thru junior high into college, and placed into the Music Hall of Fame “Who’s Who in Music” in 1978, I found another talent that started on that day sitting at that kitchen table in Lubbock Tx. Writing full jazz band scores, then combine the scores with a rock style, then you get the best of both worlds of music. I just love the sound of horns and orchestration in the music I create.

I am asked how do I get my ideas for songs? My response is that “the music just creates itself” I will sit down at my keyboards and just let the music put itself together. Sure I could just let the world go by and let my dreams just pass away, but since that day I sat in my swing and made up songs, today I am talking to you and I hope you will come and hear me play.

I would love for the world to hear my songs, because that is why they are written. Maybe in time, the music I compose will contribute to the music in time for future and present music lovers too.

Hello Everyone. Hope everyone’s doing well. First, l would like to say: “Thank You” Your support and comments are far beyond comprehension. So Thank you very much!

Flattire Shuffle is getting a tune up and I need your help.

“Flattire Shuffle”is one of my favorites and by the looks at it, many folks are making it theirs. I’ve badass up the song a bit, added a middle eight, and now I am working on a vocal line. It is not pressing at this time, But if you know of a vocalist that wants to create history, please have them or you contact me. Think southern rock style vocal.

The song below is the first original cut, it is not the finished product. The song is still structured the same. Again, Thanks so much, it is nice to know my music is so well received.

Hello everyone and thank you for the nice comments and great support. I am pleased to see that my passion and fun of writing music, has been embraced by so many. I recently created a song and for some reason it reminded me of a flat tire. I’ve combined both words together and created the song: “Flattire Shuffle” and by all time hits, chosen by you, is the number 1 choice. So sit back and enjoy the music. I hope everyone has a great day and be safe out there.

Your friend in music,
Rick Haynes
