The following videos are not an attempt to capture the songs in their most perfect form. They are merely a vehicle to let people hear some of my work that has never been in the public eye. They are shot using the video setting on my little Canon Powershot and a little Joby tripod. The guitars are either a Martin 000 series or a pretty beat up Johnson JD27. My old Kay banjo may make an appearance or two as well, for better or worse.

That's it. I welcome comments and encourage you to share the music if it strikes you.

2017 Song #1: Alternative Truths


Well, as you can see, I missed a chunk of time. The reality of two young kids at home all day settled in and my momentum ceased. However, 2017 is a new year, and it is starting off in the most unimaginable fashion, with a completely unqualified charlatan being sworn in as president. But just one day after the inauguration, hope blossomed, to the tune of millions of women worldwide, marching in solidarity. So we will 'Keep on!' in the words of Pete Seeger, and do what we do best to make the world a little bit better in these dark times.
