Our Kickstarter campaign is over, and we did not make our goal. But that's okay. We learned a lot, and we'll be back with a new, smarter campaign in a couple months - and I hope that we can count on your support when it is NOT the holiday buying season...

Best rehearsal yet last night - cannot WAIT to get this into the studio and get it down. It's getting better and better and better. We are going to debut a couple of these songs on Sunday at The General Store, to be recorded by KNBO radio...
Posted on Tue., Nov. 13, 2012 - 11:06 AM


And band rehearsal is cancelled THIS week because I'm sick as a dog. Dangit!!! Stupid chest cold! If I had a head cold I could still sort of sing, but this is ridiculous. I'm doing my best to be bloody useless, but I'm really not very good at it...

Great gig last night with Kodiak Flats (aka my Nephews). Everybody was on fire. Somehow all of us have taken great leaps forward all at the same time...

Band rehearsal cancelled last night due to John being sick as a dog. I hope he gets better fast. Rescheduled for Thursday.
Posted on Tue., Oct. 30, 2012 - 10:44 AM


What a night! Saturday was the Halloween Party at the fabulous General Store Pub in Stone City, and the Nephews were in rare form! I had one of those nights where I just couldn't play a wrong note if I tried. Gods why can't they ALL be like that??? Magic.
Posted on Mon., Oct. 29, 2012 - 7:21 AM


Pickin' with Nephew John tonight at the Lincoln Wine Bar on the historic Lincoln Highway in lovely Mt. Vernon, Ioway from 8-10PM.
Posted on Fri., Oct. 26, 2012 - 6:25 PM


What a band! More major progress, tons of refinements and little tweaks that are going to make this stuff rock. Magic! I do love my Nephews.
Posted on Tue., Oct. 16, 2012 - 8:56 AM


Rehearsal tonight... If it goes as well as last week, I think we'll be dangerously close to ready to make this record happen. Yowza.
Posted on Mon., Oct. 15, 2012 - 7:35 PM


Practicing yesterday was very frustrating. My ears are stuffed because of extreme ridiculous allergies (it's corn dryin' season here in Ioway) so my violin made my head hurt, so I muted it, and then it sounded like feet... Curse you, allergies...

Hmm. I wrote all these songs for the record on the guitar, but I'm not playin' guitar on most of 'em. I'm playin' fiddle, but I haven't really thought about being "the fiddle player" because I've been so busy learning all these songs I wrote. On the guitar. I think this is called "kicking your own ass."

Fantastic rehearsal with the Nephews last night! They learn fast, and Jake, our rhythm guitar player, is a drummer, so he GETS syncopation. Wow. It's gonna be even better than I imagined. LOVE it when THAT happens!

Rehearsal tonight, 8-sharp, with the Nephews! Can't wait!
Posted on Mon., Sep. 17, 2012 - 3:32 PM


Another arrangement session tonight with Sr. Nephew John Waite, to hammer out the rest of the basic arrangements and charts, and then we get to teach all this stuff to Jake and Slim...

Us in bad light

We played a really great gig on Sunday, at a winery with really terrible light... Our new friend, photographer Hailey Dixon, did her best, but there was just no winning. Still, it's a good picture!...
