The Truth Will Come Pt. 3 

Still working on form and arrangement, of course. Is it ever done? But here you go:

The Truth Will Come 

You proselytize 
And polarize 
And shamelessly self-aggrandize 
But the truth will come 

You calculate 
And agitate 
And…

The Truth Will Come Pt.2 

I stay away from the political, generally, in my music. At least the overtly political. Every once in a while something'll sneak in, though. (See "Around 
Here", from my CD Road Of Man). 

As I said last week…

The Truth Will Come 

I'm working on a new tune, finally, the title of which is the title of this blog post. I have resisted writing anything about our current government administration, but this one came to me - unbidden, might I add -…

The Virtual Musician 

Did my first Livestream show yesterday. It was on ZOOM, organized by some friends in the Tucson area. I've had misgivings about live-streaming as a format for music consumption; I think we've all seen shows online with bad audio and/or…

Time And Water 

New tune, and a demo version for you today. Please stay well, safe and strong....

Sometimes amidst the chaos and clutter things of beauty rear their heads. So this has. Believe it if you need it, if you don't just pass it on, in the words of two much wiser than myself. 

The Sound…

Wanna Stay Right Here In My Cocoon 

  Yep. Gonna stay right here and think my unhappy things. Don't want to be no butterfly. Here's the studio version for comparison. Stay well and safe. Wear a mask.

Never Say Die (Before You Do) 

Pray with your eyes open as if there's something there to see
Don't pretend to be nothin that you don't really want to be
Don't rue your empty pockets or the holes in both your shoes
And never say die…

Everybody's Just A Heartbeat Away... 

...from the next thing. Here's another line from my song:

We can't be trusted to our own device.

Obviously true when you look at how we (societally) have dealt with the very real and very deadly threat of…

Wear A Mask. The Life You Save May Be Your Neighbor's 

Yep. As uncomfortable as it may be to some, wearing a mask isn't all about you. It's about me. It's about the service provider at the grocery store. It's about the kids down the street. It's about your neighbor's parents…

Another Life  

How many? How often? How sad. How Systemic.

When is enough, enough?

When YOU say it is.

Pull in the latch string and double-bar the door. Can't see no sin that way, son. Can't see no truth…
