I was born quite a few years prior to my emergence into Second Life as Lyndon Heart. In fact, I was born quite a few years before that other George Michael from across the pond went and stole my stage name and made himself all famous with it.
For me, it all started with simple Midwest garage bands — kicking up the amps with friends and making the neighbors riot in my native South Chicago. But even in those green days, I knew I just wanted to make music. Over the last three decades, I’ve amassed a not-too-shabby repertoire, had a lot of fun, and gotten into plenty of trouble. My loving family moved around with me from Colorado to California to Florida before we put down our more stubborn roots here on the outskirts of Seattle. I still love to strum and squawk as much as I can, I just sometimes have to do it while keeping an eye on grandchildren now.
When it comes to strumming I favor acoustic and electric guitar, although I occasionally pick up a mandolin, harmonica, and even my trusty kazoo when the mood strikes. As for the squawking, I span a pretty diverse range of ballads, rock, reinterpretations of contemporary hits, and even a few indie lesser-knowns.
I’ve collaborated and contributed to countless US recordings and shared stages with performers such as Shania Twain, Brooks & Dunn, Tanya Tucker and Dan Seals as well as The Average White Band and Loudin Wairight III. I watched a concert once with Willie Nelson and there are a lot of gigs I only remember the start of. You know how it was back then.
Currently, I work a day job, teach guitar, writes songs, play live music with my Seattle-based band Tweety And The Tomcats, slip in for a few Second Life solo gigs every week, and sneak into a local open mic here and there. I also torment friends and family by remaining an insufferable coffee addict.

Lyndon Heart was born January 10th 2006 and I promptly caught the Second Life live music bug.
I have since appeared on most of SL’s premiere stages (many of which no longer exist). My gigs are laid back fun and I try to make them all about the music while inspiring a crowd to dance, wiggle, and squeal. Come give a listen and stay a spell if you like what you hear!
