I have collected 24 of my songs to present in two volumes and let you hear them the way I wrote them, just the guitar, the voice and the story. My temptation is to fill in all the blanks anyone might find. There was a time I would have filled in all the arcane references, the back story and all the things that triggered the story becoming a song. I am finally beginning to trust the songs enough to let them tell themselves and let you the listener fill in the blanks. The hard part was picking 24 songs from a catalog of about 150 “keepers” that have chronicled my journey. I realize in some ways this an organic animists gospel song book and in some ways it’s a simple journal of people, places, thoughts and experiences.
The Troubadour—Volume 1 September 25, 2010—Farmington, New Mexico
It has been 21 years since that fateful day Bill Kingsbury convinced me that if I just put “one word with one chord and let the song go where it need to” I too could become a true singer/songwriter. He made me promise I wouldn’t worry if the song was “good” or not but just write the music down because it was there.
Since then I have seen the technology go from 4 track tape to cassette to digital (my Roland 880) and now the computer based work stations with all the virtual signal processors and unlimited tracks. Now I find the spiral has carried me back to the musical beginnings…just the guitar, voice and the story. I hope the journey has been as exciting and affirming for you as it has been for me and I hope the songs reflect well on the people, places and experiences of those 21 years.
