I’m Rick Hayes, a songwriter. I like to write in general, mostly fiction, but writing songs is what I’m best at. I produced a CD a few years ago. Here is a picture of the cover. (If I had my time back I think I’d change the cover from such a big picture of myself. But I was younger then, I guess.)
I was born on Newfoundland Island in 1976. I grew up with much partying going on around me. There are pictures of me before the age of one with cigarettes hanging out of my mouth. Pictures of me with someone holding a beer bottle up to my lips. Those were different times. You could still smoke in hospitals. The world was different too. That was the year before they stopped using the guillotine in France. Seems like that should have happened long before then, but maybe that’s just me.
