Desert Magic has become my most popular song. I wrote it in the 70s. This was recorded live at Star Hall in Moab Utah, I think 1994.

I wrote this song when I was 15 or 16. I was hitchhiking from Austin TX where I'd been playing music, back to Utah for xmas. I was stranded in the cold rain, no money, no ride, outside of El Paso. Recorded it years later..

I grew up in Utah and started writing and performing music when I was 12 years old. I traveled the United States doing what work i could get to support my music habit. In 1988 I moved to a remote ranch near Capitol Reef National Park in Utah. I bought a 4 track Fostex recorder.I could drag it out into the desert and run it from my truck battery. I recorded 3 albums this way, DESERT MAGIC, DESERT RAT, and LIVE FROM MOONFLOWER MESA. I have a spinal cord disease which ground me down so I couldn’t record or perform from about mid 1990’s - 2013.Finally got the pain under control and I’ve just finished a new ten album collection.Includes the albums Desert Magic, Desert Rat, Live From Moon flower Mesa, recordings from Ed Abbeys Moab house, a double Live album, stuff from the sixties and more. Its titled Retrospective. Release date was April 2019. For info email me at desertmagic505@gmail.com ENJOY!
