New single:
Little river

Every city or town has a ‘Little River’ or two, a neglected creek that runs through the heart of town that brings a strip of green, a touch of wild, between the rows of houses and cul de sacs. It’s usually polluted by parking lot run-off and the roots and shrubs are clogged with plastic bags and other trash. 


This new release is my homage to one such urban creek, Shooks Run, in downtown Colorado Springs. I fell in love with this lovely, neglected and abused little creek when I lived in the nearby Shooks Run neighborhood. It was one of my favorite hangouts and places to explore with my kids when they were small. We’d find old bottles and pick up trash and climb around on the gnarly old cottonwoods and elms. 


The guitar part for the song comes from the very first composition I ever wrote on guitar. It was probably influenced by songs I was listening to at the time, like Jorma Kaukonen’s Embryonic Journey. 40 years later I realized that lyrics I had been working on called ‘little river’ fit the meter and vibe of the song perfectly. At least I think so. I hope you like it too.

words from 'the dark ages'



They’ve got answers

 they’ve got truth

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth

Half the world blind,

the other cannot smile 

 Me, I’m just trying not to cry.


The Dark ages

The power is in the hands

of the men

with all the lands.

If there’s one thing

they can’t stand

It’s when a peasant

joins a band 

in the dark ages.


king snake

You got a reckless disregard

for the truth

You drive drunk

right through my blues

You weave and spin

You don’t even know

what state you’re in

You’ll say anything

to confuse
