I enjoy writing lyrics. Lucky for me, I have my brother Jason, an incredible musician, who comes up with great melodies and sings them in a matter of minutes. Most of the songs you’ll see at http://www.showcaseyourmusic.com/shawneegrove Jason is singing, and he recorded on his phone within twenty minutes of seeing my lyrics (usually at family vacations).
I also enjoy writing educational cartoons, and Jason is the narrator/singer for the most popular one, “Your House of Education” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wm3FNdf9Cwk (covers why education is so important).
One night we all went down to watch Jason sing for tips on a street corner. “Frozen” was his most popular song. Children of all ages would freeze in their tracks when he broke that one out, and ask parents for dollars to drop in his guitar case. It is something I never will forget.
Here’s a picture of Jason and I fishing at Rollover Pass around 1973.
