About

Hello Friends and Fans!

I have recorded 11 new songs that I am so excited to share with you!

My new CD is called “Grasshopper Mile” and the songs are about the celebration of life, the celebration of death and all the dreams we have in between.

Titles include some of my most requested songs: “Leave this World” a song I co-wrote with Melissa Greener, “Angus McDonald” a song inspired by an obituary and the title song “Grasshopper Mile” co-written with Templeton Thompson and Sam Gay.

I’ve always wanted to record a very stripped down, bare bones record and I’ve finally done it.  These songs feel very personal and intimate to me.  They wanted to be recorded with just me and the guitar like a live show.  So all I am going to add are the fabulous harmonies of singers/songwriters Templeton Thompson and Sam Gay!  Sam, who is also a multi instrumentalist and all around great guy, will add touches of dobro, guitar and mandolin. He is also co producer and engineer.

I would love for you to become involved in the making of this CD!  Your pre-orders and participation will allow me to cover the costs of production and manufacturing.  Offers include: hand written lyrics,  a Skype session, a youtube dedication from me and personalized song written for you, along with signed CDs!

I am so very blessed to have all my incredible friends and fans who’ve embraced my music all these years!

It fills me with such joy to write, sing, and record my songs.  I can't believe I've been able to spend my life doing it.  But here I am and it's all because of you!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there and for listening.

This is my 5th independent CD, and I feel it's going to be one of my very best.

Risks and challenges

The 11 songs have been recorded and will be delivered to you! With your help, I can cover the production and manufacturing costs.

I have successfully crowd funded 2 previous CDs, but it's a leap of faith every time!

I am hoping and trusting that my songs have and will continue to enrich your life and through your pre-orders and participation, I can finish this CD and deliver it into your hands and eventually into your heart!
