Hello my friends!

I hope y'all are enjoying your spring season, where ever you may be!

I'm off the road for a while and I just played a rare home-town concert to showcase a preview of the songs from The Fallow Year. I had some amazing players backing me up, and this performance got me even more excited to spread the love, soul and message of this record - mental health awareness - as far as I can. Above photo from that show by Paul Schatzkin, Cohesion Arts (extra photo schmutz by moi).

Do you have plans for the summer?  Tell me all about it!  I'll be home through the summer which means I'll miss y'all out there in the world!  Leave a comment on this post or sign up to my monthly email list (details below) and tell me what you're up to so we can stay connected, because connecting with you is pretty much the entire reason I do this!

While back in office-mode at home these coming months there is tons to do! I'll be ordering shipping and packing supplies, designing T-shirts, CD art and a million other pieces of the puzzle that comprise making a record. It feels good to gather the goodies to fulfill all of the pre-order packages that y'all pledged for on The Fallow Year crowdfunding campaign last March.

I still can't believe how awesome y'all are to be a part of my song-world! I'll never not be madly grateful!!!!!!!!

Let me tell you, Nashville sure does know how to do spring! We've had just about perfect temperatures, mostly sunny days, blossoms, trees budding out into delicious new-green leaf, so many birds coming and going from South to North... It's a good season to be home.

I've been taking walks - and of course photographs - at Radnor Lake Natural Area. I'm lucky Radnor is so close to my house.

I just added these three new images to the Art Prints page on my website. These captures look amazing printed Large Scale on beautiful archival art paper. All sizes are available and I'll ship directly from my living room to yours. If you'd like to order a print there are many more images on that webpage to choose from. Check them out here:

That's all for now. Thank you, my good people! Enjoy springtime where ever you are!

Till soon,


PS, I'd really love it if you'd sign up on my email list for monthly correspondence (no spam, I promise!) so you can get some extra good lovins! You can do so at the bottom of any of the pages on my website, 😊
