Latest and Greatest!

Happy summer from beautiful Central, Oregon!

This is our first full summer here as we approach our first full year in our new home after leaving Southern California last August. Melanie and I lived in SoCal most of our lives and loved it, but this was such a great choice for us to start a new chapter in our lives. I wasn’t going to work at all this summer but a few things came up and I couldn’t resist. I will be in-studio live on the radio this Saturday in Bend and head to Washington for a few shows and back to Eagle Crest for a house concert before the real touring begins in September. With all this free time, I have come up with six new songs that I have demoed so there just might be another CD after all.

That’s about it for now, but if you get a chance to listen, you can stream the live radio show from 2-4 PM PDT

Hope to see you at a show!!!
