Singles: Dystopian Hellscape (For Donald J. Trump) and Ensenada

I’ve been writing songs more or less non-stop since the mid-1990s but only released fifty. I have a lot of extras in the vault! With an eye toward mining that backlog, I’m going to release a bunch of singles in 2018. The first two were produced by Rick King in his living room in Lafayette, CA.

Goddamn Referee

My newest song was inspired by the last soccer game of the season, which – in the opinions of some – was not well-officiated. For the record, this song is NOT precisely autobiographical.

The Bottom Line

My latest blog post concerns The Bottom Line, the legendary New York music venue where I discovered a bunch of great artists in the mid-late 90s, including Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark.

Current Favorites

For no particular reason, I created a playlist of the songs I’ve been playing over and over. My plan is to update the list whenever a new song enters my consciousness and/or an older one falls out of heavy rotation. You can listen right here, or click over to Spotify; if you Follow the playlist, you can listen along with my musical obsessions.
