Things in Life is the new single from Annie Savage and myself, it will be released on May 25th, 2022. The single is part of our album "Precious Memories" from several years ago. Honestly I had forgotten that we recorded the song but when listening recently I was struck by the beauty of Annie's singing and wanted to share the song more widely so decided to release it as a single. You'll find it on all the usual streaming platforms.
Thanks to Chuck and Lilly Sitero and Nick Einterz for having me on Sometimes A Great Podcast this week. We had a delightful time playing and talking music. You can watch the episode here.
I've just released a book of poetry and prose entitled "Words and the Sound of Words" and you can get yourself a copy right here. I plan to put out a book of comics and silly stories, most of which appeared at one time or other in my old zine "Nu Vu Du Revue". I seem to work in cycles, and it's been an energized, busy cycle lately so I hope you find something you enjoy.
My latest release is an EP entitled "Fellow Traveler" which can be found on all the streaming sites and physical copies are available here in the "store".
My new album (which is actually made up of older recordings remastered) will be available for streaming on January 24th. You can order a physical copy now if you click on over to the "Store" part of this website. You could also write me an email to email@example.com and we'll make arrangements that way. If you are a DJ or writer for one of the folk/americana/grassicana/ roots music stations or publications drop me a line and I'll get you a copy along with a press release.
I'm pretty busy these days - two new musical releases coming in the next month or two as well as a book too. You can get this swell new design on t-shirts and coffee mugs right now though. You might recognize the words as the lyrics to "Shouting!" a song that I first wrote/recorded in 1985 and have put through different arrangements and adaptations over the years. There will be a new version on the EP "Fellow Traveler" which will be out on February 23rd of this year. Spread the positive message…Read more
We welcomed in the year of 2022 here in Louisville, CO under clouds of thick, black smoke as wildfires tore through our town. As you may have heard on the news, more than 30,000 people fled ahead of fast moving fires driven by winds that reached 100mph on Thursday.
I had enough time to grab my laptop and run out the door, jump in the car and start the process of navigating packed streets as we all tried to find a safe place to wait and watch. My section of town, known as "Old Town" made it through the…Read more
Many of Woody Guthrie's songs will live forever and that's a wonderful thing. Not so wonderful however is the fact that many of his songs remain so relevant. I've been thinking of Vigilante Man this past week for obvious reasons. I do it here with more of a minor key melody that Woody used, but I'll bet he varied his songs from time to time. Also added some new words which I know he did all the time. You can watch the video here
This was a busy summer for Orchard Creek Band, finally had a time to edit a few videos from some of the lovely places we played. You can see them here.
Since my Facebook account was hacked and snatched I'm trying to write more of my observations on a blog I started sometime ago but have neglected. Go ahead and hold me to a promise to write more in that format. You can read my latest piece here where I think out loud about being political
