The stars aligned in late November — thanks to the 2016 Kickstarter campaign! We spent three days tracking in Ithaca N.Y. at Pyramid Studios and put down the majority of the tracks for the new album.

  The players consisted of Sebastian Steinberg  (Fiona Apple, Soul Coughing). Sebastian was fresh off of a tour with Iron and Wine . Greg Evans  (Ithaca College percussion professor and awe-inspiring musician). Friend and Producer Craig Street   (Nora Jones, Joe Henry, Holmes Brothers),whom I have been cultivating this album with for a couple of years now. Willie Watson (Old Crow Medicine show, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings) put down some vocals and we hope to have him back for the next session. With luck my friend  Tyler Ramsey will be joining us as well.

Here is a very  rough track of the song "The Split"  with Willie Watson on duet vocals. This might give you a hint at what to expect.

The experience in the studio has exceeded my expectations. This is my fifth studio album and it has proven to be the most exciting and rewarding production time thus far! I am now launching the final crowd funding campaign through Indigogo with anticipation that  we can complete tracking of the  album in early March 2018! I cannot continue this inspired process without your help.

finding Nina.... 

A web page announces that they are "under construction." ?... I suppose that's how I have been feeling the last year or two...and it's a good thing. Part of the process has been gaining faith in my  music and in that undertaking gathering support in surprising ways. Last night I could not stop watching Nina Simone's videos and documentary's... what I witnessed was such power, fear, anger, and an absolute willingness to dive in to what she believed she was born to do.
