Lucky shots…

Of all the photos I’ve taken in London over the years this is my favorite. Somehow that bird represented freedom from the bureaucracy symbolized by that building.

Passing it on…

Posted: February 2, 2019

When I moved from Santa Fe to Portland I gave up my custom-built recording studio. Only thing I miss about the place, being honest. I transported all my gear here and watched as it sat in a garage and then in one side of my live/work apartment. I always told myself I’d get it all […]

I had some dreams. Then I dreamed a song about them.

A survivor.

If memory serves me well, I have now had this guitar for 50 years. I think I was 16 when I bought it (with help I’m sure from my parents). I remember the shop that sold it to me and the excitement of walking out with the best guitar I’d ever had up to that […]

Is there a word that could change your life?

Posted: January 21, 2019

After years and years and years of examining this question, I think there is. It seems to me that the root of so many problems is one word: insensitivity. Not being aware of the effect you have on others. Think about it. I like to think I have and I like to think it has […]

All in a good cause, I hope.

I am not sure if it is a direct consequence of age or more a subtle shift associated with the changed points of view that age enables. Either way, I have been actively decluttering my life for some time now. Today I parted company with boxfuls of books that at one time I would have […]

Potentially a new song about an old problem.

Posted: January 7, 2019

Clearly not inspired by any recent events, I think this song is based on a theoretical concept I may or may not have experienced as a young man. Can sex make a relationship worse rather than better? I’ll leave it at that, other than to say this is one of those lyrics that was born […]

Another New York loss.

Posted: December 12, 2018

Some of my happiest times were on stage at The Cornelia Street Cafe. After rebooting my musical life after a 25 year pause I performed at The Bitter End on Bleeker Street in Greenwich Village, New York, supported by my dear friend Craig Snyder and encouraged by my other dear friend Peter Farrell whose band […]

Deep into his fiery heart…

Incredible that this was recorded during a sound check. This is great musicians playing for the pure joy of it. No “one, two…check, check…one, two” for Leonard Cohen.

38 Years Ago Today…

Posted: December 8, 2018

We lost John Lennon in 1980. On that day I wrote these words. It would not be until 2005 that they would become a song. I tried extending them into a more conventional, longer song but I had said all I needed to say. And so “John” became a short closing tribute on my album […]

A new poem

SELF PORTRAIT   The self portrait I would draw Would not look like me Drawing what I feel Not what others see   This life is not a mirror Or a photograph Both are in reverse Life’s forged autograph    ©2018 Dave Tutin

Crazy – but what a sound!

Posted: November 3, 2018

For some time now I have being trying to sell the equipment from my studio. I was hoping to keep it all together and sell it as a plug and play small studio but no such buyer presented themselves. So I was getting ready to break it up into its component parts and sell it […]
