Jugglers

Released 2017
There sure have been a lot of social changes since the founding of this country....economically, environmentally, technologically,
to name a few. When living with so much uncertainty, it might just be the time to pick up the balls, and relax into it.
NOTES
Do you know the collective noun for a group of jugglers? You've heard of a "Gaggle of Geese', a "Murder of Crows".......it must be something a little shady. I mean jugglers.....really?

5 Times 'Round the World

Released 2017
Released 2017
The Leatherman travelled New York and Connecticut on foot in the late 1800"s. The mystery as to who he was or why he chose this path has created quite a legend. My take on why his acceptance by the locals, shares so many parallels in todays world.
NOTES
John Coates joins me again on keys and harmony vocals. Frank Busse played drums and percussion. Thanks guys!

The rest is me: Guitars, mandolins, upright bass and vocal.

A punky look at a couple of artists from diverse genres making a life of it.....and happiness abounds!
NOTES
Thanks to John Coates for the punky keyboard parts. Always loved that Farfisa like sound back in the day, until it got over used. But I thought it was fun to revisit it for this tune.

The rest is me.....

NOTES
Being a farmer as well as a musician, I took the opportunity to set the life of our farming neighbors to song. My own experience working the land has given me some insight into the challenges and rewards these good folks deal with on a daily basis.....I hope this resonates with you.

Big Al's Car

This is a rocker inspired by my favorite live bar band, like the one's we all grew up with. We all did grow up right?
NOTES
After decades of playing rock music in bars and clubs all over New England, I've been leaning heavily into the lighter acoustic stuff. Lot's of "real work" songs.....inspired by the folk rock of the 60's .......Trains abound, farming abounds, life abounds!

A rootsy, moving celebration of America's great railroad past, present and future.
NOTES
This trio of seasoned musicians has been mining the history of transportation in America for almost ten years. This new collection of songs evokes a full set of human conditions. From the excitement of youthful discovery to the tragedy of loneliness in a fast moving boxcar of unknown destination. Wandering around the country....searching. But it's not all trains all the time, there's also trucks and cars and a fair amount of walking.
