My most recent album “All You Can Do” (is all you can do) has just been re-released. There is radio, YouTube, and digital promotion that will be happening starting March 12, 2024. This is a song from that album. (The album did land at #6 on the MMD for top download/stream this week. MMD is the download service for hundreds of radio stations.)

The first single to be promoted is “Sweet On You.” 

“Afraid of the Dark” is also from that project and will be the second single.


Halloween has always been a special time for me. In October of the year I turned 12 years old, I was so under the influence of Edgar Alan Poe that I took to going down into the basement each night to write some pretty bad Gothic poetry by candlelight with a homemade quill. My mother was amused by this phase but my father thought I must have a couple of loose screws.

Rene Erickson created a very nice video for this piece I think, and Beth and Gregg did a very nice job of making the track come alive.

Use headphone. It helps.

Be well.
Be kind.
