I want to Thank all of you who have recommended my music and to all who are on my mailing list and Network shares. I'm still kind of new to sharing my music on the internet But I'm still learning. Music is such a gift. I truly believe we are born with it. I don't know how I am able to write music and play any instrument I pick up. I never had a lesson in my life. I named my newest album "Songs From Beyond Here" because I feel that my talent comes from way beyond my physical link believe all songwriters can relate to that. Have you ever sat at your instrument and tried to write a song and nothing comes out for weeks at a time? Then one day you pump out 3 complete songs within an hour. Music is Magic and it is in all of us, one way or another. Again, Thank You So Much For Making My Dream Possible! Richie Hoffman
Just a quick note to Thank all of you who joined my mailing list and all of you who have shared my music. I am in the middle of recording my new album in my new home studio. I am finally living my dream of recording an album that I wrote all the music, produced all the songs and play all the instruments. I hope to have it completed in a few more months. Thanks Again & It's great that us songwriters help each other to get their music out! It's not easy.
In late February of 2003 I received a phone call from a US Army Major with orders for me to leave my home in New York within two weeks and board a flight to Iowa. I was ordered to report to the 389th Engineer BN, Alpha Company US Army. My wife was 8 months pregnant at the time and my Mother was very sick. I returned to my home in New York 16 months later. After I returned home from IRAQ I was stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, MO I was able to fly home on leave for the filming of this Channel 21 TV Special. Extra footage BEHIND THE SCENES: Facebook
