Listen

Swirl (2007)

FIRST YEAR - A mix of Blues, Folk, Rock, Funk - Vocal and Instrumental

Finding the Blue Bird (2008)

SECOND YEAR - Folk, Blues, Rock, Jazz, Latin

In This Universe (2009)

THIRD YEAR - Played around with chord progressions...simple, unexpected, pleasing. Spent a considerable part of the month educating myself on 11/8 time (Clave). It was a great exercise to expand my musical mind. Sometimes mind expansion can be difficult so I took breaks and had fun with distortion (Sea Seven).

POSTCARD (2010)

A guitar/vocal map of my emotions this last year: 1-Jazzy joy about love and snorkeling. 2-Funky dance rhythm sans vocal track. 3-Melancholy and longing. 4-Mountain Climbing song you can clog along with. 5-Deep grief on ukulele. 6-Short, sweet little guitar tune. 7-Experiment with percussive quitar - tin can lid, pick vibrations, slide. A few Work-in-Progress instrumentals: 8-Song for Howard Zinn; 9-the gypsy in me comes through a little; 10-classic folk sound; 11-distorted guitar

BIOGRAPHY

I live and play in the seacoast area of New Hampshire. Although I've written a number of songs over the years, the 2007 RPM Challenge was my first attempt at putting music absolutely first and creating an entire solo album.
