Well, how about that – just when you think you’re coming out of the tunnel, the tunnel decides to get just a little bit longer. Covid, the  @#$%^* game changer. Deep breath. Pivot.

Having been presented with this new game plan, I…. well… I sort of….well, no,  I actually… made a new record! Drum roll please– and welcome LIFELINE to the world!! This one feels really special; a record that can only have been made at this time in my life. During the pandemic, I wrote lots of new songs. Some of them have been performed by the MDUUC HouseBand, like “Survival Stew” (watch here ).  And a bunch of the others made it onto this, my 6th (!!) project of original songs.  LIFELINE feels like a testament from the kind of insight that can only come from hindsight. I hope to make 2023 the year that I follow the Lifeline, or that it follows me. Coming soon to a town near you, available on all digital outlets you can think of, and available right here! Just click on “STORE” above.

I am still teaching guitar, piano, voice and  songwriting, in person or by Zoom. “SongC.R.A.F.T.- Writing Songs in your Authentic Voice” the BOOK, became an Amazon #1 Bestseller, and  the popularity of the SongC.R.A.F.T. workshops I have conducted has tipped me towards focusing on helping writers articulate their vision, and find their authentic voice.  Look for more workshops in the near future, and/or, contact me for one-on-one songwriting coaching  You can buy a copy of the book from my store right here, or visit www.mysongcraft.com to learn more.

The Crosses of Lafayette are STILL up, and I continue to play my song “Memorial Day” at each vigil, as promised. Last year’s shares got the video as far as Hong Kong. Feel free to share it with friends near OR far on Memorial Day, Veterans’ Day, or ANY day you feel like taking up the rallying cry to end war.

 Be sure to sign up for my email newsletter over on the right, connect with me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or visit my YouTube Channel.

If you need a special song for a special occasion, consider having one written just for you, please visit my new page, above, MILESTONE MUSIC. I am accepting a limited number of song commissions this winter/spring. What better tribute to your someone than a song of his/her own?

THANK YOU for your support of original music in general, and of mine in particular. I hope we get to see one another at a show sometime soon!!
