Some demos, new tunes and a few selections from the discography, check back for new stuff. Note that Sessions with Woody are recordings from my living room while Woody the Australian Shepherd roams around looking for ways to make himself heard on each take- he's kind of a glory hound that way.
"Fire & Water" (2008) has 14 tracks, mostly my own tunes, but a few written by some of my favorite Vermont gal songwriters: Carol Abair, Susannah Clifford Blachly and Rachel Bissex.
We recorded mostly at the awesome studios of Egan Media in Colchester, VT and had some great guest stars come by and contribute their talents to really make this project sparkle. Guests include: Gregory Douglass (vocals), Paul Asbell (guitar), Phil Abair (hammond B3 & piano), Colin McCaffrey (mandolin), Jamie Masefield (mandolin), Susannah Blachly (fiddle & vocals), Rik Palieri (banjo), Dave Keller (guitar & harmonica) and Martha Seyler (vocals). Thanks gang.
The sound is rocked up folk and blues with a bit of jazz and politics thrown in for good measure.
