Songs of life, love and Africa…

Logo 1 HRWelcome and thanks for the visit!  This site was down for a few years while I was working in Ethiopia, but I’m now back in the Live Music Capital of the World (Austin, Texas) with plenty of time and energy to make music, which I’ll share with you here, along with the occasional random thought about things that are inspiring me.

I hope that you’re here first and foremost to hear my music.  Everything I’ve recorded in professional studios is on the Music page, and I would urge you to go there straightaway and have a listen.  Some of the songs, including three about Africa, are also featured in Videos, so check them out, too.  And if you like what you hear, please share it with others who might enjoy it.  I don’t do music to make a living — damn good thing!  The currency I trade in is resonance — having someone tell me that one of my songs really struck a chord with them.  So when that happens, please shoot me a message on the Contact page and let me know.  It means a lot to me.

One of the great things about Austin is that so many incredible musicians live here, from the nationally famous to the best singer-songwriters you’ve never heard of.  Sometimes, I’m lucky enough to play and record with them. I’ve had the great pleasure of touring with Stephen Doster in Africa (Events).  Here are some of my other Austin favorites: Steve Snyder, Paula Held, Moonlight Towers, Bill Carter, Dony Wynn, Chris Maresh, Erin Ivey, Joel Laviolette and Rattletree Marimba, Luke Hill…Check ’em out!

Another side of my musical life is The Duke Street Liberation Army Band…a crazy group of aged hippies spread around the country, but originating in southern Pennsylvania in the early 1970s.  Check out our debut album, Arsenal of Love, released in 2014.
