And what is Adored by one is Feared by the other.
And what is Sought…

Summer Soul-Stice Tour Finalized And Confirmed 

Yep, it's really gonna happen! The Summer Soul-Stice Tour is a 14 show in 18 day extravaganza, the success of which is predicated on the health and survival of my old truck. Starting in Tucson with an apogee in Maine…

I know I've tortured you with the first two installments of my new tune "Talking Blues", and this week is no exception. Here's the second verse:

Talking Blues, Pt. 2 

If you checked in last week you were subjected to the first verse of "Talking Blues". The Chorus (to follow) was written first, actually, a few weeks ago. It was one of those things that popped up, landed in a…
