Dave here. William Hoover and I have been writing songs since the 1970s, but up until now we've pretty much kept it to ourselves. After 30 years of that, we thought we might try sharing it here with whoever's interested.

I'll start by saying that I'm not a performer, and don't really intend to be.  I'm a composer.  What' I'm posting here is to give you an idea of how the song goes. I'll post some lyrics where appropriate and maybe even a bit of sheet music. And just to keep things interesting I'll put a little background for each of these songs... maybe a story or two. Hopefully someone with more talent than I will pick it up the music and play it and share it (with proper credit, of course). If you're that talented individual I'd love to hear your interpretations, and post them here with on the composer's site. We have hundreds of songs backlogged. As I get 'round to it I'll update this index.  Enjoy.

Oh. One other thing. Due to patent issues, the preferred format for music on this site is Ogg Vorbis. I may post some MP3s here in the short term, but I don't promise to continue. Please visit the Ogg Vorbis website to update your music player with the codecs for this excellent open music format.
