Leaving Again

by admin on February 18, 2013

I’ve added a new preview from the upcoming CD “Says The Rain”. The song is called “Leaving Again”. I wrote the entire song on a bus trip from New York City to Boston. I was visiting my daughter in Brooklyn one weekend and I took the Bolt bus back to Boston. The words all came […]

Top Five Recordings for 2012

by admin on January 1, 2013

My top five recordings for 2012 are obviously going to be heavily acoustic/singer-songwriter oriented (just to be up front about it). And I have, needless to say, missed plenty of great recordings this last year. Still these are some of my favorites. John Fullbright – “From The Ground Up”. First heard John at the Kerrville […]

December 28, 2012

You can preview the song “Poodles In The Wild” from my upcoming CD “Says The Rain” just below. But some of you may be wondering how the song came to be… It was at the Kerrville Folk Festival in 2011 that my friend Terri told the story that led to the song. She was working […]

Searching For Sugarman

November 4, 2012

Saw the documentary “Searching For Sugerman” the other night. Oh wow. If you haven’t seen it, and I’m guessing most people have not yet seen it, it is well worth the $’s to go find it at your local artsy/indie film theater. Or buy it when it becomes available. This is an amazing story. Rodriguez […]

My Instruments

July 8, 2012

For the equipment geeks out there… My main guitar is a 1970 Martin D-28 (one of the earliest of the East Indian Rosewood dreadnoughts), strung with John Pearse 80/20 strings (bluegrass — light on top, medium on the bottom). The guitar was fitted with K & K Sound’s Pure Western Mini pickups by Music Emporium […]

May 19, 2011

Well I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I was at the Kerrville Folk Festival. But here it is. The festival starts next week and once again I will be making the trek to Texas! I’ll be hanging with the SingKerrNicity crowd a bit, but I expect to get out to other song […]

Have guitar, will travel…

October 21, 2010

…but not on Delta anymore. Why do some companies just not get it? I mean, I understand that sometimes I’ll end up on a regional aircraft that just doesn’t have room for my guitar on board. Or maybe the flight is just so full that there’s no more room in the overhead compartments for my […]
