Where I live, International Women's Day is a big holiday and has been for decades. I write in a genre where the traditional songs are pretty much BY men, FOR men, and ABOUT men. If they're about women, it's a certain sort o' wimmen, if you gets…read more

Beautiful !!! Whatever you are doing, it sounds fantastic. Listening to your lyrics . . . . I think I’d like to meet these Cape Cod Girls.

Well, my fans, such as they be (they be great, if few in numbers) encouraged me to "really" record this from Greg Connor's songwriting challenge. So off into the Total Chaos studio I went, and now this is out on CD Baby (sales proceeds go to benefit…read more

Just happened to run across Greg Connor's challenge to write a song around the words "who knew". I knew right off I wanted to include some characteristics of Greg's songs: romance, humor, and Las Cruces leaped to mind. I thought about it for a…read more

This song graced our living room this morning. Your guitar playing on this is amazingly delicate, but it’s the lyrics that got both Rita and I laughing out loud. Now …. that’s poetry.

You have always had a clean production style. This is professional. Is that the audio production course, or just natural ability?

I Love It . . . .I can almost taste the salt in the air.

I am an American of Hispanic descent living in Russia playing and writing music that often involves the banjo, an instrument of African origin.

It doesn’t get much weirder than that, folks!

Styles include Americana, folk, and bluegrass, with influences from lots of things. And there’s often a banjo in there somewhere, though not necessarily yer grandad’s hillbilly sort of banjo.

Lately my focus has been on creating original maritime folk music after the style of traditional songs, but with my own variety of salt added.
