Sugary Jive

The next song from my “Risky Biscuits” album featuring great sax by Gary Hartle and bass/backing vocals from Dwayne Wallace.   I did a worldwide radio promotion for this song and got heavy play in the Virgin Islands.   Alas, it was not enough to warrant a tour there.   Maybe next time.

Easy Breezy

It’s such a nice sunny breezy day in the ATL today I thought I should post a song especially for the occasion.

“It’s as easy as you want to make it.”  Words I need to do a better job at living by.  This song is in the style of The Sea and Cake, one of my all time favorite bands.  Thanks for listening!

Wild Man

I was in Nashville last week playing a few songwriter nights while I was there on business and remembered how much I loved this song.  ‘Wild Man’ has some of my favorite lyrics of all my songs.    It was written on mandolin and is a story of a tragic rocker living the high life on the edge.  The end has a twist.

This was performed by the Parakeet Nelson band of 2003 featuring John Wayne Tuggle on lead guitar.   It is available on my “Getaway Plans” album.  Thanks for listening!

Thank You Carlos Santana – song of the day

I just got back to Atlanta last night after working in Massachusetts for two and a have months.  It’s nice to be  home.   So much so it makes we want to rock out Santana style.

This is my thank you song to Carlos Santana.   This is from my 365 Songs for 2010 and is just me playing all the instruments.

Crazy or Crazy in Love

Home for the weekend to see my wife.   Working 1200 miles away from home really makes you appreciate your relationships.    That made me think of this song today.    ‘Crazy or Crazy in Love’ was written and recorded during my song a day year in 2010 and has been a great live song for us ever since.  Thanks for listening!

It’s All Relative, But it’s Relative to What? (song of the day)

  lyrics

I haven’t posted a song in a while.  Life and work tends to get in the way sometimes.   My friend and talented songwriter in his own right, Jake Rathburn, reminded me of this song the other day.   And of the vastly cerebral lines (sic)  “Things are not opposite in China as they are here,  the gravity is still the same except for the gravity in the beer”.   Deep stuff I know.    Thanks for listening!
