Matthau, in his caring, yet cynical style, says , "Kid, it's not the one big break, it's the fifty." Overnight success rarely is, and most creatives that […]

Your Book Is NOT A Business Card!

[ALBUM UPDATE: We've got about half the album recorded and I've approached a couple of engineers about mixing and mastering the project - one of whom has worked with artists like Clapton, BB King, and Rod Stewart. This is getting REAL, yo!
