Fall Begins 

Just returning to Brooklyn from a nice road trip down to Texas and back. Lots of old friends and old familiar places to revel in.

New writing is in the works, and some new songs are being shared. Keep your ears open, keep your heart wild.

 

is it the end of '17 already? 

so the year seems to be winding down and I've got to tell you, this 'retirement' is coming to an end shortly.  <p>

 

There are new songs, there are ROCK songs. there's a slightly new direction, and there's a life position that is allowing for creativity.  <p>

 

Thank you for always checking in and for your continued support. EVERY DOWNLOAD, EVERY SHARE, EVERY VIEW is appreciated and doesn't go unnoticed.   <p>

but one of the most important ones to me was the Cover of the Week project from 2014/2015

all were recorded on the…
