Life and golf

The end of 2017 approaches and I cast my mind back to its beginning. Stirring with the joyful anticipation of new places, new projects, happy reunions and renewed zeal for whatever lies ahead, I approached it like the naive golf approaches the next tee-off, imagining that long straight drive, the solid shot from the fairway, […]

Back again

Finally, my website has been returned to me. Out of date, to be sure, but I’ll catch up over the next few weeks. Wanted to say, though: the gigs with Garnet Rogers were among the best I’ve ever experienced. A great exchange of words and music, a fine meeting of minds.

With Lynn Miles

Three tremendous days in the studio with Lynn Miles recording some of our co-writes. What a total pleasure to toss these tunes around and see them land exactly where we aimed. And, of course, there’s Jamie Robinson who never, ever disappoints. Some days are diamonds.

I realize that sometimes someone else’s plans and/or schedules depend on getting information in a timely way. And, it’s common courtesy. Not bully […]

My Christmas Reprise

The end of another lightening fast year.  A lot more silver threads among the gold (not that my hair was gold). My skin, doughier and slipping its mooring. My drooping left eyelid and the drooping left side of my lip are more and more…well, droopy.  And so another Christmas, my 62nd or 63rd. And once […]

The Road to Stanfest

I don’t know how I neglected to post this, but better late than never, I guess. I’m overdue in reporting on my week as an instructor at The Road to Stanfest Songwriting Camp. Wow. What a year. The other instructors were sharp and funny and kind and smart, smart, smart. Doris Mason, Kim Dunn, Thom […]
