About Me

I have been a freelance writer and music journalist since 1990.

I have contributed to Billboard, No Depression, ChronicMagazine.com, Columbia Free Times, Country Standard Time, Charleston’s Free Time, Lexington Life, The Lexington Chronicle & Dispatch, Palmetto Parent, Upstate Parent, Carolina Homes & Interiors, and more over the years.

This blog is a forum for me to write stuff my usual outlets either won’t or can’t publish for various reasons–limited space being the most common one. Whenever something here is connected to any of my other published work, I’ll note that, otherwise it’s safe to assume that everything here is exclusive content not found anywhere else.

If you’re a band interested in having your music reviewed or your story told, drop me a line at kageyo@yahoo.com.

  1. Do you know whatever happened to Gretchen Meigs? I finally got a chance to listen to her whole CD Disenchanted and I love it.

    Hiya Fred –

    I’m in Phoenix, AZ. Was not too impressed with the music biz after trying to promote the CD, so unfortunately I haven’t recorded anything since. Plus I kind of blew out my vocal cords trying to sing over the background noise at one of those 3-hour gigs at one of those coffeehouses…so I’m working & raising kids. Glad you like the CD & hope you’re doing well! You too Kevin!

    Nice write up on Ted Bird. He was an old friend,
    and the 1959 Guild D50 I play was his. He also
    turned me on to the house I live in, where Patrick
    Sky was living at the time. Thanks for letting people
    know Ted was a talented character.
