DC Rapier was born in a little log cabin he helped his father build in Kankakee, Illinois. Later, he whittled a guitar out of firewood and taught himself to play simple tunes. After years of professional starvation as a 'working musician', DC found his way to Taiwan where he has lived and taught English as a foreign language for 24 years. In addition to being BoPoMoFo’s (ㄅㄆㄇㄈ樂團)lead singer, sax, flute, Blues harp-player, DC also performs as a solo performer singing songs from ‘Tin-pan Alley’; the popular music of the early 20th century written by legendary American songwriters and composers such as Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, the Gershwin Brothers, Hoagy Carmichael, Gus Kahn, Harold Arlen and Irving Berlin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tin_Pan_Alley
