We’ve been in the recording studio – Big Sky Recording (engineer Geoff Michael) – hard at work on the new CD “Searching for Neverland” and honestly we just can’t wait to get it in your hands. That said, as you probably know, making a CD costs money and we can definitely use a little help. So, if you’re interested in our music and feel pretty sure that you’ll want this CD (or know others who might) all we’re asking is that you consider making your purchase a little early. We WILL get this CD done no matter what, but every PRE-SALE will make a difference.
This CD is going to be filled with songs you’ve been hearing us perform over the past few years, some re-workings of a few songs from our Take Me To The Fair EP (which was a limited edition and is now out of print) as well as a few newer songs you may have heard if you’ve been to a show recently and we’ll be saving a couple for you to discover for the first time on the album!
Once again we are taking advantage of the amazingly gifted, Jason Dennie, who has been contributing his essential skills on both mandolin and harmony vocals to most of the tunes. In addition, we’ve got the super talented Dan “Ozzie” Andrews on bass and there will be several guest artists to be named later rounding out what is sure to be a uniquely satisfying sonic experience surrounding our songs. (Ha! Who writes this crap?).
Anyway, you’ve got a couple options. If you want to pick up the CD at our CD Release Concert on May 29 at The Ark, or any concert after that, we’re asking just $15.00. If you prefer to get your CD in the mail as soon as we receive them (est. late April), we’re asking $20.

The only thing we have to say now is THANK YOU! So very, very much.
It was this very time last year, sitting in the tiny living room of the townhouse at which we landed in early 2013 after an abrupt, radical and painful change in our life, when we decided to make another change – this time for the better. Don’t get me wrong, the townhouse was a perfect place for us to do what we had to do … get rid of, let go of, purge, both material and emotional crap that was cluttering up our lives. It just wasn’t a home. So as I was sifting through boxes and boxes of really old photographs – the kind taken with a crappy Instamatic camera by a not-so-great photographer (me) that you had to pay to get developed and of course why wouldn’t you want TWO of each in case the crappy photo of the person in the photo might actually want a copy?? Please. And I realize that not everyone would agree with me, but why would I hold onto this photo of that guy I dated for like a second? Seriously. It was unbelievably cleansing to say good-bye to them.
Anyway, I said to Rod, “I can’t spend another summer here”. Continue reading

Well, so much for my goal of writing a new post at the top of every month. Life does present its share of interruptions doesn’t it. Funny enough, just as I typed those very words, I got interrupted. Don’t even remember what it was, but that’s the way things have been going lately – bouncing from one thing to the next. I’m not complaining. Does it sound like I’m complaining? Doing means I’m alive and even if sometimes the thing I’m doing isn’t the thing I think I want to be doing or should be doing at least I’m doing. Speaking of which, I made a big long list of things for doing but I can’t find it right now.
Let’s see what’s on the calendar for this week – Monday – in the studio with the Yellow Room Gang (Jim Bizer wrote a fantastic new song which you’ll get to hear soon); Tuesday – rehearsal with Jason and Ozzie; Wednesday – On The Tracks Songwriter Showcase with John Flynn and George Heritier.
Keeping the rest of the week open for getting things done…
As you were.
