2020 Can Go Suck It

2020 Can Go Suck It  So far, 2020 is a year when I can’t see people I love, when I can’t hear the music live that I want to hear, when the world is falling apart at the seams, and when tyranny has become the rule of the day.  A year when the resurgence from… More »

The Bestest Music Stores….

Wow. Been a little time between posts here, but thank you for sticking with me. There has been a lot going on both in my day job and with just the stuff of day-to-day life. As a result I have not done as much of this kind of writing as I should like to, but… More »

Recording, and Being

Greetings everyone. It’s the end of another week, and the beginning of yet another. I cannot express to you how happy I am that I’ll be taking vacation time at the end of this week. Also, there are at least two new songs that feel like they want to be written. I plan to work… More »

Burnout

Sometimes life gives you clues in the form of subtle metaphors. Other times it delivers them with blunt force.  Tuesday was one of those other times.  My computer monitor had been acting strangely over the previous couple of days – suddenly shutting down, but responding to turn back on, and then turning itself off again… More »

Four in a Week (Live Music, Recording, etc)

If you’re wondering why it’s been a little while since there has been a long blog post, it’s because we have been busy!  One of the things we’ve been working on is recording music. Demo versions of both “Clouds” and “In a Minor Key” were released to SoundCloud a few weeks ago. If you haven’t… More »

Before…. (On the remixing of new music)

I come from a long line of do-it-yourselfers – tinkerers, mechanics, electricians, and even an engineer.  As a result, my first impulse is almost always to try to figure things out on my own. While this does get me into trouble sometimes, my successes so far outnumber my utter failures (utter failures being defined as… More »

Playing some music and raising a little money

Hi everyone. Relatively short post here today. I want to remind y’all that I will be playing some music live this Friday night at 8:30 Boston time on Facebook live. Here is the link to join in. I’d love for you to stop by to listen to some old familiar tunes and maybe a couple… More »

On a Tunnel 18 Live Event (& Travel Shock)

First a little bit of news, and then a little bit of observation. First, I have decided to do a live stream event on Friday, May 29 at 8pm Eastern, both as a way to play live in a longer format, and also to do a little bit of a celebration.  Tunnel 18 first played… More »

Of Clouds and Singing

So, I promised you a longer blog post. Here you go. Thank you for hanging in there while it is taken me some time to get some other items in order. Work, day stuff. However, I’ve also been immersing myself in as much music as possible: writing, performing, even learning. First, there’s new music.  Remember… More »
