    The Riddle
Beatnick is a nickname I created for myself early on when I was writing music on my mother's piano.
It stemmed from my love for the Beatles and I wanted to call my band Beatnick and the Odyssey. It never really caught on, but I continued to grow as a musician and learned to play more instruments. I drew from many bands as influences, too many to list here. I made several recordings, pretty much for myself and a few friends. It was just something I enjoyed doing. I feel like my music is moving in a different direction now. I am focusing on my instrumental work now, mostly because I don't like my voice and I also think I play better when I don't have to worry about singing. When I tossed a few band names around, I found they were all taken. I then remembered Beatnick and went with Beatnick's Odyssey. It represents the journey I took to get here. It also ties me to my roots while still moving me forward. A Memory Ago is a collection of several instrumentals I have recorded over the last few years. Some are rough cuts, but I still think they are good songs to represent the direction I am heading. I hope you enjoy the music.
