New Song: "Life is Fine"

Another Song & “The Cable Guy Comeith”


Just settling into my summer writing retreat, getting things hooked up. Have you ever noticed that every single cable guy who comes to do an install or repair says he can’t believe the last guy did it that way? I suspect surgeons feel the same but have the good sense to keep it to themselves. Presidents, on the other hand, behave more like cable guys.

Gearing up for my annual trip to the Other Coast — 5 shows in CA, one in AZ, back home. I thought things were supposed to slow down at a certain age. I guess I’m not there yet.

And the songs keep on coming. Here’s a link to another new one (for email list subscribers), done again at the kitchen table just for you. (It’s not perfect, but, hey, it’s at the kitchen table!) And it’s actually, a new TWO — I’m sliding from “If You Will Love Me” into an instrumental in the same key, “Lullaby in E”. I’ve been trying this out on stage and folks seem to like it a lot. Do NOT listen to Lullaby while driving, operating heavy machinery or changing diapers. I can’t be responsible! (Again, this is only for you folks on the email list — if you know someone you think would like it, get them to sign up here.)

The West Coast Swing:

Saturday, May 11th, Santa Monica, CA, two shows at McCabe’s: the 8:00 PM is sold out, but not (yet) the 10:00 PM. (I know it’s late, but Hey!, let’s pretend we’re back in college!)

There’s more, but that’s it for now — thanks for reading!

I was just told that the woman who opened the first location for Freight & Salvage bought the building, fixed it all up, but didn’t have enough money left to change the sign on the front, hence “Freight & Salvage”.
