I never wanted to be a front person. I was always content to hide in the background producing and writing the music so it is difficult for me at times to put myself so forward. Maybe that is why a lot of the songs express angst. Still, I have this machine in my soul that pushes me day in and day out to write and produce. So, I do it. Like it or not. It’s me. – Blondeking aka Thomas Dickens
