MN Homebrew Radio show has a monthly writing contest. This month it was to use the word "wait" or "waiting" in your song. So the hook line of the chorus popped into my head at 5:30 in the morning and the rest of the song came pretty quickly…

I wrote the lyrics to this song a couple of weeks ago while thinking of personal reflections. I figured out the melody just in time to head down to Greg Connor's MN coffee table and get he and Mark Lofgren's great voices and guitars on it with…

Glad to get some inspiration from new friends and an old video of Jackson Browne's speech accepting his induction into the rock and roll hall of fame.... As usual a first draft and a rough cut, but glad to be feeling the muse again... A GHOST…

I am happy to post this first rough version of a song I wrote yesterday after a really long creative drought. It cracked me up because I'd woken up with this idea on my mind first thing after watching a stupid TV show the night before where…

I wrote this song while watching a beautiful snowfall a couple of winters ago - right after the 2016 election. I was feeling a lot of emotions at the time, and writing this one helped out. I decided to record it in the studio, and we're almost…
