Here’s the deal with me, and I know I’ve been over this several times and in several forms. In my formative teenage years I became a folkie. I appreciate a great songwriter. I’ve seen and see quite a few of them, and I count many of them as my friends. There’s a vibrant and wonderful […]
Katie flies a drone and I try to film it. Mostly we just laugh a lot. Also I’m trying to be more organized…haha.
Whew. I’ve been all up in the video making lately that the text post quality on this blog has really gone down. Part of me regrets that, part of me is proud of posting videos so regularly so…eh. But TEXT! Let’s WRITE! So…I spent the week in New Mexico for my cousin’s wedding. It was […]
A certain amount of years ago (ok, like 10) when I was in college, I hung out with a group of 4 friends and we called ourselves The Quadrangle. We did most everything together, enough so that we had to coin a term for our clique. We all keep in touch even though we’re all […]
We all know where I stand on the topic of Mary Chapin Carpenter. She’s only one of the greatest American songwriters ever. I am fortunate sometimes when the Greatest comes to my neighborhood, and I get to see a show! My friend Heidi rolled into town from California – we’ve seen about 45 million MCC […]
I feel the need to blog more before it is 2014. Uh… I had the joy of spending the week before Christmas with the Traveling Red River Songwriters’ Tour…with the amazing Drew Kennedy, Walt Wilkins, Kelley Mickwee, Brandy Zdan, Josh Grider, and SusanG. We all gather for the Red River Songwriters’ Festival in January in […]

My friend Charlie Faye asked me to help her make her new album pledge campaign video. Specifically she asked for my booking agent voice (example here). Help a friend get a great record made AND make silly voices? How could I say no to that? Here is the result: Here is Charlie’s PledgeMusic site where […]
Lots of good music stuffs going on this month…both spectating and participating. First up: HOBRO…an all girl band named HOBRO because we can. Elizabeth Wills, Christa Hillhouse, Susan Gibson, and moi formed a girl band to play our friend Anna’s benefit out in Wimberley, TX. We played only Susan Gibson songs, so it was kind […]
We had a great time at the Snowy Range Music Festival in Laramie this weekend…we got there a day early to see Macy Gray (Susan noted that a good Macy cover band should be called the Gracy Mays). I really only knew Macy from her big 1999 album and the song “I Try”…and her hair. […]
