A little about meFlag Profile
Short Bio: I am a #Catholic #Folk #SingerSongwriter who has been a Music Minister for the Catholic Church for over 50 years. I play a Martin D-28s Guitar named "St. Camillus", an Epiphone Banjo named "Jake", a Roland Synthesizer named "PMA-5", my 'Cello which doesn't have a name, and a Roland "WX-7 MIDI Wind Controller" which can Control the "PMA-5" using MIDI to Create Original Catholic Folk Genre Music. Oh, and I Sing too, I have a Range that starts at Upper Baritone, and stretches to Lower Tenor. My first Album was Inspired by Jesus' Teaching in the Gospel of Matthew, 10:42, to give "a cup of cold water" to the least of the brethren for the brethren's sake. Based on that Teaching, I recorded an Album called "A Cup of Cold Water" gleaned from my first 30 years in Music Ministry for the Catholic Church that began in January of 1968, when I was appointed to be the Leader of the High School Folk Group at St. John Fisher Catholic Church in Portland Oregon by the Pastor, when I was a Sophomore in High School, and continued to the Fall of 1998, when I was the President of Resch Engineering, Inc., a Materials Science & Engineering based Company, working mainly on Medical Implant Product Liability Litigation Cases for the Plaintiffs. In the Fall of 1998 I turned our Conference Room into a Digital Audio Recording Studio, where I spent 6 months Recording & Producing my 10 Track Album of Original Material (except for "All my Trials" which is in the Public Domain but I have some Custom Lyrics for). I Copyrighted it on 2/9/17 (my Wife's Birthday) titled: "A Cup of Water - Catholic) which is the name I submitted to iTunes that iTunes changed without asking me. Part of my Mission as a Music Minister is to give that Album away for Free to anyone who wants to Listen to it, using my Website: Resch.com as a Distribution Vehicle for facilitating Free Downloads of the Album. I also Produce other Christian Contemporary Compilation Albums to give away for Free using that Website.
