It is comprised of 11 songs- 10 of mine which are both old and new, and a cover of Betty Elders', "Long Bed From Kenya". Produced by Cris Burns, we got the best takes when it was just me and my guitar (with a click track in my ear), so that's how we went with it and most of them are "first takes"". Simple arrangements, so it would sound like me playing just for you, except for the added flourishes of other instruments here and there. 

Added flourishes is really a bit of an understatement. Brennen Leigh, Katy Rose Cox, Alice Evans, Lauren Gould and Mary Hess added their respective talents. I was unable to pick any specific "great" take because I was blown away by every note they played.

 

If you are so inclined, and I will be most grateful if you can, I have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to hire a professional radio promoter. And help is greatly appreciated. I have a lot of faith/confidence in this project, and unless it gets to the "right People" it won't go anywhere. Kind of like that "if a tree falls in the forest" thing. So here's the link:

Thank you for supporting independent artists like me. 

All the best,

Well then.

  Woo hoo! "Cordless" made the list of 2018's Top Selling Texas LP's in Texas Record Stores. A big thank you is in order to Antone's Record Shop for their above and beyond support of independent artists. It's also the coolest place to spend a rainy day or Sunday afternoon. And if you don't already have a copy of "Cordless", what are you waiting for?

Big thanks to the Texas Music Office (especially Steve Ray) for placing value on the music created here with their support. 

The Tree Remembers...With the Kavanaugh hearings, I saw so many inspirational posts, most of them heartbreaking and empowering at the same time. Someone posted the African proverb “The axe forgets, the tree remembers”,  a Zimbabwean proverb from the Shona tribe, meaning that a person who harms another or borrows from someone will often forget, but the person who is harmed or borrowed from will always remember. I was out and about and this song formed in my head, so I hurried home, wrote and recorded it here:
