One of the difficulties I faced as a TBM was being a creative musician among non-creative people. How about you?

Welcome Louise! I was a band geek at one point too.

Hey guys. I'm not as much into music anymore, but I worked part-time in a cover/rock/dance band for about 6 years, including some time during college to pay living expenses. I play(ed) drums.

Amazing video of Hotel California, recorded by 2 amazing artists, 4000+ miles apart in different countries.

Welcome to Carl and Lori! I have a full schedule today, so I can't get to your myspace page, Lori, but I will. Carl, I totally understand the whole deal about lds folks suppressing actual feelings (like at lds funerals for a real stark example!). Anyway, more later from me. Gotta run. If anyone wants to hear some of my music, there are snippets from my New Orleans CD at Also, more contemporary jazz, including a couple of my own compositions, can be heard at

Ciao for now.

Ed, I never answered your question in the welcome. I felt basically squashed being a musician among non creative people. I try to write music about the human experience, the good and the bad. Even now, out of the church, I don't play most of my music around my family. Once my mom wanted to know if there was something wrong with me. I was writing lyrics about being unhappy. I needed to talk to my bishop. These lyrics weren't immoral or about drugs but good Mormons don't talk about unhappiness; they hide it. I have written some happy tunes I play for family at Christmas. Happy is part of the human experience as well. By staying hiding away the bluer shades of life, many Mormons don't paint full spectrum.

Hi All! Love the site!

I wrote my album "The Warrior In Me" in reponse to my critics of leaving the church. You can hear it at, or purchase it on Itunes. I look forward to hearing your music!

I am throwing myself out there a bit but I figure you folks are musicians and exmormons. I attached a song I wrote about a year ago on the day I resigned from the Mormon church. It was from live performance at the Alaska Folk Festival. Bear with me; he recording quality sucks since it was recorded off the on my shirt.mp3

I play guitar and write songs. I play a couple shows a year. Music is one of the best things in my life.
