So excited to report that I have a new recording of original songs that will be (fingers crossed) coming your way for a May release. Many of these songs were composed in my little music room in Sandpoint Idaho during the long months of COVID isolation.

The name of the project is “The Mountain, The Valley, The River, The Pine” and of the songs in some way or another pay a tribute to Idaho’s mountains, valleys, rivers, and pines as well as the people who live here in the beautiful state known as “The Gem State”.

Many of the songs are solo and are played just the way I wrote them: Vocal and guitar. Others feature some of Sandpoint Idaho’s many talented musicians who are people I treasure. The artwork on the CDs cover was painted by Alison Barrows-Young one of our local and internationally known artists. The cover was designed by graphic artist Trenee Solt of Bonner’s Ferry Idaho. The recording was done at Selle Valley Sound by Kerry Diminyatz. Of course what all of these people have in common is that they are all my friends, neighbors, and fellow artists and so this is truly a homegrown grass roots effort for which I am very grateful.

The recording will feature bits of bluegrassy folk, acoustic blues and gentle fingerpicking folk. To say that I am blessed to be able to do this is an understatement!

That is all for now! Here is to hoping we will meet somewhere along this joyful musical path I travel! Until then – Cheers!
