OMG! The website is out with a fresh, new look! Please look around and tell me what you think.
As many of you know I am visually illiterate so I can't take any credit for the style and look of these pages. You have my son Joel and my wife Martha to credit for that! My new Logo was designed by Martha Robertson and the talented Nancy Terzian of Buckinghorse Design.
About that logo! Do you like it? The guitar came from a classroom activity Martha was leading with some students. The assignment was to create an old fashioned ink stamp. You know, where you press the image to an ink pad and transfer it to paper. Martha decided to make a guitar stamp out of cardboard.
The guitar image you see in my new logo is the impression from that stamp! Cool Huh? Once we had that, we turned it over to Nancy Terzian to create a signature and put the elements together. I'm loving it!
Notice I have a featured video! Please check it out. This one is my song "Losers Ballad" from the NEW CLOTHES album. Here's a little background on it; When recording we felt that the sentiment of the song would best be shown with minimal production. so I played the guitar part & sung the lyric. Vinny Ribas (who was indispensable to the entire project) played a simple kick drum and a quiet little piano part. When it was time to master the project, we were slotted at the mastering studio between Greenday and Neil Young. I was all ears to listen to any comments this industry pro might have to say about the album. His only comment was on the "genius of the simple production" of Losers Ballad.
For such a short song, it has some great stories attached to it. Remind me sometime and I'll share one of them.
I am going to have some fun with you on this site. For those who join my mailing list I'll have some exclusive content, giveaways, and other fun things as they occur to me! I want your help though. I want to be interactive with you. So please checkout my social media links or send me an email through the contact page.
I want to come perform in your area, but I will need your help to make the arrangements.
Love to you all!
