Going for his dream: After decades of self-destructive behavior, aspiring songwriter Tommy Botz is seven years sober and in the process of achieving his lifelong dream with the recent release of "Family & Friends," featuring his songs recorded by local musicians Billy Sullivan, Logan Wells and Michael Seifert. "There were points in my life where I was going to give up, but music saved my life," said Botz, 63, a 1966 Maple Heights High School graduate. "I've been at the Ed Keating Center for seven years. Early on, I saved money up and was debating whether I should move out and get my own apartment or go for my dream, which was to record some of the 200 songs I've written through the years. Eventually, I got ahold of Michael Seifert at Ante Up Audio, gave him my vision of what I wanted to do, and he helped me get together with the musicians." Botz, director of the Ed Keating Center's East Side office, has high hopes "Family & Friends" will make its way to Nashville and lead to an established artist cutting one of his songs. His favorites include the Johnny Cash tribute "Train of Glory," the gospel-sounding "He's Coming Back" and the honky-tonk "Maggie."

    Tommy Botz worked really hard before achieving his dreams last 2011. It has been 9 years since he entered the industry, and I am glad that he is living the dream right now! Most of the songs that he produced are all wonderful, that's why I became an instant fan of him! I also tried to read some [url=https://www.resumehelpservices.com/resumewriters-com-review/]resumewriters reviews[/url] about his songs, and most of these reviews are good!
