MOST RECENT RELEASE!
Twisted Tango - a tribute to PNW songwriters
Popllama Products release date: 2.1.21
My mother used to tell me that I started singing and making up songs while still a toddler in my crib. Over 60 years later, it's still something that's a vital part of each and every one of my days.
Over that time, I've performed solo with guitar, in an acapella group, and with multiple bands from new wave to R&B, country, and rock, and sung backup and lead vocals on a lot of recordings. I love to be in the midst of friends making music of any kind, and adding my voice to the magic.
All three albums are available on your favorite online download or streaming service, or you can order a CD at www.Popllama.com
The Road, Vol. 1 is my first solo CD, a recording of 12 of my favorite lifetime songs, from Bob Dylan to Patsy Cline to Johnny Mercer and more, accompanied by stellar guitarist John Olufs.
Hankin': a 10-song tribute to one of my biggest musical heroes, the legendary Hank Williams. Recorded with a full honky-tonk band!
Recorded at Egg Studios in 1996, engineered and produced by Conrad Uno. Released in November 2018
In the summer of 2019, some of my very favorite musicians joined me to record Twisted Tango. It features my versions of 12 songs written by great NW songwriters and bands such as Pearl Jam, Red Dress, Young Fresh Fellows, Jim Silva, Mudhoney, Soundgarden, and more!
A NEW ALBUM IS IN THE WORKS!
In the summer of 2021, I went back into Seattle's fabulous Crackle & Pop Studio to start recording again with "my guys": John Olufs, Jed Jedzrejewski, Pete Pendras, Kurt Bloch, and of course Johnny Sangster (on multiple instruments and in the control room) What a great time we had making music together again!
And don't forget the energy and enthusiasm of Silas the studio dog!
After returning home, the recording continued during fall and winter inside the unfinished (yet perfect) Arivaca Dancehall, with Conrad Uno at the helm. These songs feature the wonderful musicians that I've been jamming with for the past few years: Tom Lewis, Hal Buckingham, Julio Lopez, Alan Wallen, Peter Ragan, Brad Knaub, Andrew Alday, and the inimitable acoustic bass/piano genius Glen Moore.
The new album is entitled "The Road, Vol. II" and includes 12 songs (6 with each group of musicians). It has now been mixed by Johnny Sangster and mastered by Ed Brooks, and will be released in fall 2022... perhaps in tandem with the grand opening of the Arivaca Dancehall!
