Jud Caswell, owner and engineer of Frog Hollow Studio in Brunswick, Maine, interviews me about my new CD, "I've Got a Secret", that I am recording there.  Jud is doing a really great job, liberating me to get my music down the way I've always wanted.  Listen to the sound of the lead guitar lines Jud elicits from me in Fade Away, or in "I've Got a Secret". (I love that Les Paul!) I'm about 1/3 done with the recording work, but I need your help to finish this project.  There's still a lot of studio work to do, mixing, mastering, packaging design, graphics, duplication, marketing...  This is a lifelong dream, and I hope you'll join me in making it come true!  Lots of good stuff for everyone who participates!
