15 tunes done and counting! 

Hey, People have been wondering whats happening with the new albums. Well the originals album is basically complete. 12 songs done and 99% mixed. The covers album has 3 songs complete and 7 to 10 partially done. I have run short on money, so we are on hold for a couple months til funds begin to roll in again.

Summer 2009

A few more shows this summer, then September will bring me back to California for…

Something very cool about people bringing blankets and lawn chairs to kick back and listen to me…
