Where I live, International Women's Day is a big holiday and has been for decades. I write in a genre where the traditional songs are pretty much BY men, FOR men, and ABOUT men. If they're about women, it's a certain sort o' wimmen, if you gets…read more

I set out to make this lyric a sea shanty, but it didn't work. So it became more of a bluesy Negro Spiritual type song (if it's not a social faux pas to name that genre that way these days). This will not be the final cut of the song. I was…read more

It's been a long time. Too many distractions and not enough time, or even focus to play lately. Somehow this song, "Higher Ground" squeaked out from some hidden place.

@valsvil - Just me. No, I lied. There was also a bottle of rum involved.

I had another version of this Stan Rogers tune up here before. But I recently decided to invest in some nice plugins for my recording setup (IZotope). I used this tune as a learning project and it came out so much better than what I had before…read more

Someone needs to take the Dr’s prescription pad from him. I think Gobbels would appreciate this bold rewriting of history. Its sweep is asphyxiating

I am an American of Hispanic descent living in Russia playing and writing music that often involves the banjo, an instrument of African origin.

It doesn’t get much weirder than that, folks!

Styles include Americana, folk, and bluegrass, with influences from lots of things. And there’s often a banjo in there somewhere, though not necessarily yer grandad’s hillbilly sort of banjo.

Lately my focus has been on creating original maritime folk music after the style of traditional songs, but with my own variety of salt added.
