Two new songs are out now through my Bandcamp page
This is the second installment of Letters…
The sun comes o’er the mountains
Night sky turns red
Fog lies in the valley
Blue hills still wet
Birds sing songs of morning
Green trees still gray
House light on the hillside
Frog outlasts the cricket
Old dog still sleeps
Cold grass in the backyard
Crawdads in the creek
Life seemed much bigger
when I stood here before now.
I want you to see through my eyes
Hear as I hear
All that’s lost
when I’m without you.
These songs are letters put to music. They are the culmination of trying to not only lyrically and musically tell a story, but sonically. I hope I came close to hitting the mark.
And I hope you like them and share them with all your people.

As endless and overwhelming as music can get, sometimes it feels really good to just let things fly on a simple blues with good friends. This recording is of a song I wrote called “Dead Man Blues”. Hopefully it will make it onto a record soon. In the meantime, you can check it out here…
