HOW MY POETRY CAME ABOUT BEING PUT TO MUSIC
In April 2004, Christian singer “Marty Kearney” contacted me when
he came across my poetry site through another link on the web.
He said the flow of the words was perfect and the music just fell
into place. He then asked if I would allow him to set some of my
poetry to music. I have met personally with both Marty and his
wife Jean on three different occasions in Illinois prior to my recent
trip to Florida in Dec. 2004. Once, they made a special trip to Illinois
to perform in a local church to see how well the congregation
received them. They were greeted with a very warm reception.
Marty and Jean would like to turn this venture into a full time
Christian music ministry, traveling across the U.S. performing in
churches and other organizations along the way. Currently, Marty
is a professional landscaper in the state of Florida and Jean manages
an apartment complex for the elderly.
To make a long story short, I drove 1,200 miles on a trip to meet with them
personally in Okeechobee, Florida in Dec. 2004. Several nights, I accompanied Marty
and Jean to the recording studio in Port Saint Lucie, FL. where Timothy
Gordon, Producer/Engineer/Musician helped Marty get my poetry recorded.
