I am thrilled to announce the completion of my new CD, “Five Reel Film”! Many months in the making, this piece
of aural cinema represents the first official release in my nearly 16 year solo career. For those of you familiar with my
solo acoustic shows and folkier tunes, “Five Reel…” may seem like a departure. However it blends many styles
and influences that have been a part of my musical being since I first began to sing at age 4: a speck of folkiness, a pinch
of country twang, a bit of Beatlesque harmony, a chunk of classic rock, a spot of musical melancholia, and a dash of psychedelia;
yet each song is held together by the cinematic lyrical themes of memory, confronting the past, and trying to live in the
Though primarily a solo effort, I could not have completed the CD with out the valuable musical contributions of Michael
Grow whose tasteful lead guitar and lap steel add everything I cannot musically. Also helpful were the songwriting ideas of
Alan Zucker and the vocal stylings of Randy Berge and Hali Hammer. When you see the cover, you will be dazzled by the original
artwork of Howard Penner.
Now you can read lyrics and the stories behind the songs. Keep checking back for more information.
