#27 - Call Her Wild 

Since I call this a creative journal, here's another rough draft song sketch.  I teach songwriting via Rivertunes At Home this weekend, so I'm trying to get my circulation moving for those quick, 5 minute song starts. You know, just…

#23 - Wide Open Road 

I wrote this tune yesterday, and I like it okay so far.  I've been walking and working out how I'd like to sing it, and looking for any natural bridges.  Walking with a tune in my head is one of…

#17 - No Place But Here, Song + Video

Upright piano, bent pool cue 
Pick-up tires, adult diapers, 
A GE electric dryer, 
Pink chair and a plaid sofa,

#2 - Quarantine

Here's a new song, Quarantine. I think it's not quite done, so maybe after I do more work on it, like sort out my singing, arranging, and a possible bridge, I'll repost an improved version.  For now, here you go…
