Moved to Korea! - October 6, 2012

Dear friends and fans,

As most of you know, in August 2012 I took a music teaching job at Korea International School, just outside of Seoul, South Korea.  I've spent the past three years averaging over 100 gigs per year, with summer touring and weekend fly-outs and local gigs and all sorts of wonderful music craziness all over the US.  Well, now I've taken my act international!  Please see the blog section for more updates -- but know I'll be back in the US and hopefully in Europe too every summer, hoping to see you and play gigs near you.  Thanks, and please keep in touch.  IMPORTANT! E-mail is the easiest way to keep up with me now, given that I no longer have a US phone number.

Peace and great music,


Taking a little break - October 31, 2010

Thanks to all of you who have made 2010 such a great year for me musically!  Over 100 gigs all over the country, and more to come next year.  I'm taking my usual winter break now from travel gigs, looking to play only locally with rare exceptions till March or so.  But I'll be back!  Please see the Music tab if you're interested in buying any of my three CDs.  And keep in touch!  I'll be out there again soon. :-)

"The Road To Happy" is here! - June 26, 2008

Thanks for your patience! The new CD, "The Road To Happy," is available. I received the first shipment Wednesday, June 25, and will be taking all of them to New Mexico and Texas with me. But the next shipment arrives Friday, June 27, and I'll send a case of them to the Library Coffeehouse in Meridian for you to purchase there. Enjoy!

"The Road To Happy" available soon! - June 15, 2008

I've just finished final art and sound proofs for my second CD of all-original music. "The Road To Happy" should be available on or around June 26. Watch your e-mail and this web site!

At long last -- an update - May 4, 2008

Okay, obviously I don't get into this blog thing. In fact, some of you know I wrote a song about it. But you deserve an update . . .

The new CD, "The Road to Happy," is well on the way to completion! Last week we finished all drums and percussion; we just finished all the piano tracks today; next weekend I hope to finish lead guitar/mando and a guest vocal; and during the next two weeks I'll go back and re-record over all the guitar and vocal roughs. That should put me mixing and mastering over Memorial Day weekend, with the CD available around mid-June. Stay tuned!

New CD coming along! - February 3, 2008

Rough tracks for "The Road to Happy," my second studio CD, are complete. So is the photo shoot. Bass and drums should be complete by mid-February, with other tracks finished by mid-March. I hope to finish mixing and mastering in late March and have a CD ready in April 2008!

Big spring/summer plans! - January 22, 2008

See my calendar for some big plans for spring and summer! I already have gigs in Portland and Southern California booked, and I expect gigs to come through soon in Salt Lake City, Spokane, Seattle, Dallas, the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and other places down south. Stay tuned for more details!

I'm in the PSA contest finals! - December 15, 2007
