I keep getting requests to post some of my Destiny songs. I don’t know why I haven’t until now. I guess now seems like the right time. For those of you who don’t know, I was one of the founding members, with Jeff Morgan and Erik DeBower, of the instrumental trio Destiny. We did some great things, recorded some amazing tunes, played some wonderful gigs. Our debut CD was recorded and mixed by my good friend Brent DeRocher. Erik was with us until 1997 and then our friend Wade Campbell joined us until 2002.
One of our most memorable gigs was opening for Joe Satriani two nights in a row at Portland’s Roseland Theater in 1996. Those were the days when jaw dopping guitar riffs were the norm and everywhere you went to see music you would be humbled and amazed by the incredible guitar abilities of fellow guitar shredders. We took a huge gamble playing the music we played. We didn’t become radio stars, but we developed a nice following and we had alot of fun.
I loved my time in Destiny. It seems when we hung up our hats the days of wild guitar histrionics were over. Thank goodness for people like Lincoln Brewster who are passing the torch to the younger generation. I’ve been told at times my style is a bit outdated, but I’m so grateful for my good friends who continue to encourage me to push the limits. If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have had the courage to enter Lincoln Brewster’s Reaching For You guitar solo competition. So yay me I won Third place!! LOL

I hope you enjoy the music!!
