New Performance Videos Now Available
Rocky Maffitt and I played a set to celebrate the release of my latest CD The Last Day of Winter (details on the CD can be found below), and as part of that set we jammed on The Steel Guitar Rag. Check out the performance on my Video page here, or on YouTube here.
The Last Day of Winter
Here are two tracks from my newest CD, The Last Day of Winter. The Water is Wide is the timeless Americana melody performed bottleneck slide style on a custom 9 string parlor guitar while Tequila is the classic 50′s rocker performed on a National Tri-cone guitar. Listen or download to the tracks below on me, then you can browse over to SoundCloud to listen to other select tracks from previous CDs… Or, you can just click the CD cover to the left and order your own copy of The Last Day of Winter.
Reviews are coming in for The Last Day of Winter!
Read what Jonathan Aird of Americana UK had to say about the new CD.
Illinois Entertainer included a review of LDoW in their March 2013 edition of Around Hear.
And here’s one from the March/April 2013 issue of Maverick Magazine.
I have compiled an expanded version of the liner notes for The Last Day of Winter, that include not only notes on the songs themselves… but also notes on the myriad of instruments that were used while recording the CD. The instrument descriptions include hi-resolution photos that allow you to get up close and personal with the guitars, mandolins, amplifiers, and other musical tools that were used to craft The Last Day of Winter.
