I’m a Native American Hobo who, for half my life, called Surry (“Mayberry”) County, NC my home. I’m a songwriter of Political Folk, Psychedelic Folk, and Main Street Blues.

I’ve posted my pre-2014 originals at alonetone.com/mythopoetica, my covers I am posting at /redshirt, children songs and covers performed with Starry Nightmoth are at /nighmoth, and my new originals are posted at /koehl.
