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. 

The Surfing Life

I wrote The Surfing Life for my friend Josh at the behest of his wife, Hope. Surfing has been a big part of Josh’s life, but these days work and family compete for and often monopolize his time. There’s nothing wrong with that – he’s mostly not complaining! – but surfing, cycling, and other semi-solitary athletic activities retain their head-clearing, perspective-shifting power. As a side note, I stole the title from a great Tim Robinson song with his permission.

Bob Hillman & Spooky Ghost

I’m working slowly but surely on a recording project with the New York guitar player who calls himself Spooky Ghost. Among many other things, he’s known for creating “haunting” soundscapes. That’s a brilliant pun, obviously, but also a hint as to the direction of our collaboration.
