ARCANA: an anachronistic anthology

Posted: September 2, 2016

  “We all know something’s wrong…but life goes on…” Coming soon. My least polished and yet, to me, my best album. ARCANA, which means secrets and mysteries, is subtitled ‘The Lost Songs’ for a reason. These sessions were brought to a premature finish by technology issues, lost or corrupted files and my move from Santa […]

Dedicated to those for whom Mother’s Day is not as happy as it should be.

For those dealing with the gradual loss of someone to Alzheimer’s. TWILIGHT OF REASON from the album THE STORY OF IT ALL.

A song about death comes alive: UPDATE – This song just made the finalist list in the NEW MEXICO MUSIC AWARDS – Best song, Americana.

Leonard Cohen once described his song Here It Is as a happy little ditty about death, or words to that effect. And those words describe my song The Old Machine perfectly. Few songs have been written about dying from an atheist, or shall we say non-Christian point of view. And while I did not deliberately […]

A taste of what is to come

Posted: October 11, 2015

It will take some time to finish but my next album will be called ARCANA. A simpler, more organic sound is what I’m after. This is not finished but will give you a taste. This features the superb talents of Ben Durfee on drums and Sam Bevan on bass. The rest is me. I’m hoping […]

The songs of THE STORY OF IT ALL

Well, I hope you’ll forgive the very long gap between posts! It was due to a major life change…a move from Santa Fe, New Mexico to the greener, lusher world of Portland, Oregon. I’ll probably be posting some tales of the trip now that my computer is up and running again. I had my iPad […]

#9 NO MORE SECRETS Of all the songs on THE STORY OF IT ALL, this is the hardest one to write about. I say that for two reasons. First, I think it’s the most straightforward and accessible song on the album. So needs little explanation. Second, it is so deeply personal, based on real events, […]

#8 THE THUNDERBIRD MOTEL So, how’s this for timing? I arrived naturally at song number eight from THE STORY OF IT ALL just as it was announced that it is a finalist in the Best Song category of The New Mexico Music Awards 2015. (Night Circus is also a finalist in the Americana category, that I […]

#7 DON’T GIVE A DAMN #2 I was the proverbial angry young man. No denying it. I didn’t like where I was, what I was or who I was. I hated school. I didn’t feel they were teaching me anything of actual use in the real world. The only classes I enjoyed were English Language […]
