Awesome. I wish that I could sit down with each of you in the same room and play you some songs face to face. Talk, sip some beer (or coffee) and laugh. I am regretting the fact that I have not played outside of California much, and would like to make 2009 that I do a tour of some sort. The question I have is, Where are you? . I hav...Read more

One of my favorite songs of late... written by the Jayhawks with Matthew Sweet. From their album "Rainy Day Music"
Gather everything you need
a change of clothes
and a book to read
'cause it's a long flight
Security won't let me by
to see you off
to see me cry
Call me please
and say that you're alright
And your suitcase
is good to go by the table
your flight's on time
I'll carry on like a baby
and somewhere there's a room
where everything I've ever lost is hiding
and e...Read more
I'm sounding the horn, a call to arms, to help me officially launch this ship named "Ulysses" into battle. Instead of cannonballs, swords, and gunpowder though, I'm hoping that I can call on you, to use your arms (and fingers and voices) to help me spread the word about my album. (less bloodshed that way) I am making it available as a free download.
If you could forward these links and the below text to all your friends/loved ones, I will sing you love songs for the rest of time. time. time. time... (fade out...Read more
After four years in the making, my second album, Ulysses, has officially launched!
Whereas Daylight Savings, my first album, was written and recorded in solitude, Ulysses is a reaction to that; a celebration and collaboration with artists and people whom I’ve had the good fortune to meet through the first album.
The call to arms here is helping me cross the toughe...Read more
So, in surreal news- I wrote some of the lyrics to the song that plays during the end credits of the movie “Body of Lies” entitled “Bird’s Eye”. I think I played some bass on it too…
The track features the vocals of one of my all time favorite vocalists, Mike Patton of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle fame. This is like a teenage rock fantasy come true for me… (hopefully not a nightmare for him)
I listened to that Mr. Bungle album almost daily during the 90’s, it was one of the most cryptic, delirious, and hilari...Read more
