On Finding Baha'is Who Do Music: I call my style pop/goth madrigals

Where can you find Baha'is who do music? Purusing the wall of the Baha'i Musicians Group International on Facebook, administered by Jarome Matthew, is one of many ways. There are 95 wall posts up with links to names both familiar and new to me. (Hey 95, a good round Baha'i number -- or should I say, nine-pointed?) With the emergence of all this do-it-yourself technology that makes making music to share online so much easier in this day (like blogging makes publishing on the 'net a breeeze), the universe of Baha'is who do music is surely in the many thousands. Here are two more recent postings from the Facebook group. -gw

I thought that joining this group might be a good way to connect with other artists. My music is very non-mainstream, and because of this, it's hard to find an audience. I call my style pop/goth madrigals. I'm sure there is an audience for it somewhere. Just not the kind that listens to top 40.
Anyway, this is my website:

And this is my Facebook page:

Hi, I’m not a bona fide musician but I enjoy listening to music and setting the prayers and Hidden Words to simple melodies. I believe that dabbling in songwriting and music, no matter how shoddy my attempts have been, has made me better at my vocation in science and engineering because it has taught me to look beyond the merely perfunctory towards that which inspires and uplifts hearts. I'm open to collaboration with anyone who is interested.

Here are some of my music videos on youtube:
