Hello everyone,

My name is Dominick and I go by Moptop. I am a veteran weekend warrior vocalist/guitarist of 30+ years (no longer playing out)and hobbyist songwriter. I work as both solo and I also collaborate with a couple other folks, one who is a gifted lyricist and the other a fine musician who's strong point is piano. I usually play or program all of the instruments myself which I do at home in my small home studio. It is a very basic setup but does everything I ask of it. I am always interested in collaborating with other musicians, vocalists, or lyricists on new projects. My one requirement is that they are completed in a reasonable amount of time and don't turn into that dreaded "never ending project".

My musical style tends to learn toward 60's pop. Yes I am an older person so I prefer the music the I grew up with the most but I'm very open to all styles in new projects. I also enjoy Big Band Swing of the 30's and 40's like Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and Harry James, to name a few.

I live in the Midwest part of the U.S. So it's the Central time zone for me. By day I am an home appliance repair technician, Washers, dryers, dishwasher, and the like. While my band was still together I was the one who fixed or designed and build all of the equipment we used. I designed and built all of the PA speakers stage lighting we used. So I am a hand's on kind of guy!

Now, my main reason for writing and recording music is simple....I do this for my own enjoyment..FOR FUN!! I do not actively promote or try to sell my material. I have NO interest in getting involved in the music BUSINESS at all. The competition out there is enormous, with musicians that are much more talented and educated than I that cannot make in the music world so why would I want to set myself up for that constant stress and disappointment. So no aspirations of stardom here. I do this for fun!!!!

I do have a SoundClod page with a number my solo and collaboration projects on it that you are welcomed to listen to.

Thanks for you time and look forward to talking to you in the future.

Dominick/Moptop

Thanks RD Man for the welcome, maybe we crossed paths on another forum. Yes, a collab would be cool.

I'm fairly new here too. Also an older musician, from the other side of the pond. This place is good, a chance to get our songs heard. Glad you're here!:)

Hi, Moptop,
I am also new to the forum and can definitely agree that the swing music of the 30's and 40's is absolutely fab, upbeat music.
Kind Regards,
AnonymousLou
