about

I can honestly say this project just happened out of the Blue here in Vermont at my friend Kristina Stykos' Pepperbox Studio.

What excites me about this record is the spontaneous informality of it all, there was no real intention or pressure to produce an album so what we have is some music that had been written then abandoned and songs that were recorded in their infancy. The latter including three songs that will be on an upcoming release by Perfect Trainwreck. I hope that that you will enjoy hearing how these songs translate from a voice and guitar (or banjo) to a whole band production.

Also featured on this record is the wonderful fiddle playing of Patrick Ross who is an award-winning violinist and founding member of the group Blue Merle, as well as Kristina playing guitar and singing back up. It's crazy what talent lurks in these ancient hills. Anyway, buy this record: it is good for your soul, it's good for your ears, and it will make a great gift for any one who likes songs about death, birth, parenthood, love, addiction, confusion, hope, and the general state of the human condition.
