Acoustic guitars (sometimes pounding the backbeat), harmonica, and me singing a few of my songs. It's an enhanced "live" sounding album with hopefully just enough "ear candy" to keep you listening... and a couple of surprises for longtime fans. It's about the songs here. Not much more than what you'd see at one of my acoustic sets. Indie folk meets Americana laced with a little pop/rock.
These songs were recorded over 2 weeks in September of 2016. Most of these tracks began as "live to tape" performances, and all of the arrangements were kept to a minimum. I believe this album reflects mostly what I'm doing on my solo gigs but, more enhanced... and minus the cover tunes! I want to thank those of you who have purchased this already! Special thanks to those who come out to my "live" sets. Enjoy the show!
