This collection of 6 original songs covers themes ranging from melancholy looks at lost family history & love gone by, to joyous takes on facing death & digging the dregs out of the honey jar. Recorded live in studio, it’s pure folk music: just my vocals and guitar.
You can listen to the songs below. If you want a copy of the CD for $5 (+$2 s&h), shoot me an email! Thanks!
