“It’s always been you” from R.E.’s Style is in my mind one of the prettiest ballads I’ve written. The string section is just awesome and really drives the song forward. I’m playing the The melody on a Fender acoustic/electric guitar and the solo is featuring my baby, the Fender Stratocaster. The video image is the Fender Stratocaster case open holding a glass of Scotch and Pipe. My son Christopher R.E. Fort collaborated on image. Thanks Chris. Released: 2015. Track 6 of 10. Genre: Ballad.
Guitarist, keyboardist and songwriter. I picked up the guitar at 10 years old and never stopped playing. I started taking real interest in piano/keyboards my first year in high school in California. During high school and college I sang in choirs and played in a number of rock and jazz bands.
As a composer my music spans a number of genres from blues, smooth jazz, ballads and rock. My motto: Without Music Life Has No Soul.
