2015 - 3 Songs for Film

I love this short but worth-it CD! With help from friends, I was able to have these three songs arranged for string quintet. "Heaven" and "More" are being considered for a movie (more when it's a sure thing). In the meantime, I've loved every moment of this project and hope you will too! "I Wave Bye Bye" is a stunning song written by Jesse Winchester. I've sung it here with Chris Ranney's beautiful arrangement. $7 includes shipping.

Journey CD

(2014) This is my favorite album so far, but I say that after every CD I make. This one's a little more fun than previous recordings, though. I worked with Peter Tomlinson on Journey. He played accordion, organ, and various guitars. Lou Pappas played bass, Manuel Quintana and Gary Burke played drums. I did the vocals, piano, and some guitar, and I wrote the songs. The wonderful Dave Cook mixed and mastered the final tracks. I recorded my tracks in my studio in Colorado. Peter recorded his in upstate New York, so our collaboration was done mostly via email. Very fun to put it together. $14 includes shipping.

Confession - CD Released in 1995

(1995)Guitar and piano based songs, this is often picked as a person's favorite of mine, which I find interesting. I think there's nostalgia in that view. This, I think, was the first really good recording I did. 'Good' because the players were great, and because I feel like I found my voice in these songs. 'Voice' meaning lyrics and forms more than vocal quality. See what you think! Songs include: Up on the Hill, I'm Here, One Small Cage, For You, When the Hero Falls, His Mother's Legacy (with Harmonytryx)Write Me A Love Letter (with David Keyes on bass), Motherless Child, confession, Grace, Reprise, and a subtly different mix of I'm Here tagged onto the end. 

Silence is Broken CD

(1992) My first official recording. Boy it's a long time ago, and boy, oh boy did I learn a lot doing it. Players include Pat Bergeson (guitars, harmonica) Dave Anderson (bass) Mike Marble (drums) Jay Scott (acoustic guitar) and David Hamburger (dobro and pedal steel). Songs include: Waiting, Oh Willy, Love is All, Tears Are Full of Fear, Seasons, Sailor, Silence is Broken, Billy, Can You Hear Me?, Quit It, His Mother's Legacy, Modern Man, and Amelia. $10 includes shipping

(2007) This is a recording that I always wanted to make.  I recorded this collection of standards with Peter Tomlinson (piano) and Lou Pappas (bass).

The Lone Writer's Writing Club Workbook - 8.5" x 11" spiral bound

This is a writing workbook/handbook/storybook for writers (or anyone, really) who wishes they had a group of writing friends to motivate them. The book is filled with prompts that the lone writer will respond to, followed by the responses of 2, 3, or 4 other writers. Reading other writers' pieces gives the lone writer an opportunity to see what others do with prompts. It also gives them a sense of community and the all-important reminder that their own story is worth telling. This workbook is meant to inspire more writing. In that way, it's good for writers who are just starting out, writers who write professionally, writers who are moving from non-fiction to fiction or the other way around. It's also great for anyone who's interested in knowing themselves a little better. Perfect for writing groups who need an absentia leader as well. And there are plenty of blank pages to write on. 

$12 plus $3 shipping in the USA. Thank you!

 

 

Click Here to purchase at AMAZON : There are two versions of this volume at AMAZON: a 6" x 9" for taking on the road (or hiding if necessary), and a larger version that's 8.5" x 11" for those who like a lot of space to write on, both with a standard binding. We hope you enjoy it, and we also hope you get a lot of writing out of it. Thank you!

Liturgy CD

(2003) Recorded for my mother-in-law, Shirley "Olma" Schoenberger, who loved these hymns. I learned how to read music singing hymns as a child so this was a sweet record to make. $10 includes shipping.
