My Sanity-saving system to prioritize your day

First, an announcement: Des is BACK from L.A., and we had a great session this week, recording tracks for The Fine Line. We laid the final tracks for our sexified version of Aerosmith's "Dream On" as well as the understated Eagles tune "I Can't Tell You Why." I am looking forward to sharing that track […]

White Christmas

This weekend, I was invited to do a short set for a local non-profit holiday party. So Des and I dusted off the road gear and delighted the ladies with a few Christmas favorites. Here's one I've not shared previously: Irving Berlin's 1940's classic "White Christmas." It's fitting, since last week I did "Rudolph" and […]

Valentine: There's A Gift In Just Showing Up

It's not every day one of your heroes gives you a public acknowledgement. Perhaps that will change one day, but for now, I'll keep savoring the occasional tweets, nods, and virtual hi-fives that come from people I admire in the world. Sometimes we forget that competition isn't always about "winning" in the traditional sense. In […]

Dream On

About 18 months ago, I met this kid, Des. He's got an amazing gift for playing piano. Watching him perform is like watching God sit at the piano... It's almost like Des isn't even there... just music direct from the Divine. I was looking for an arranger. For this song, in particular. For a few […]

I Can't Make You Love Me

Des looks at a piece of sheet music for about 20 minutes and says "Okay, I'm good." Then he hands me the sheet music and creates his own equally compelling arrangement. Listen to the solo section for a glimpse into this kid's creative improvisational genius. Just amazing. Oh, and this is song #75 in the […]

Made To Love

When Des came to visit, I was lucky enough to get two tracks for the new album done. Yes you heard that - the new album is finally becoming a reality! YAY! One of the things I've always wanted to tackle was Tobymac's "Made To Love". I've heard it covered and mixed in a couple […]

Sharp Dressed Man

Back in May, I was joined on stage by The Damn Whippersnappers for my first virtual concert. It was a fun-filled and amazing day. I've posted clips from that show, but none of them really do justice to the fantastic musicians that played with me that day. Well, as luck would have it, Des, the keyboardist […]

What Love Can Do

This was the finale from our show this month. Needless to say, this was one of those "dream come true" moments for me. When I first started writing this song a couple of years ago, it begged to be played with a band. The Damn Whippersnappers do not disappoint, and Kris' solo is just the […]
