"Songwriting isn't brain surgery;
it's heart surgery."
--Guy Clark

Appalachian music...

I've never lived in Appalachia, but people often say my music reminds them of their home in the mountains. Let me bring you high lonesome, down-home songs from the heart.

But took the morn - " (ll. 23-4)

--Emily Dickinson, "One sister have I in our house"

Songwriting combines poetry and nonfiction in the mountain songs I love to learn and to write.  This was the lucky year I found my way east to record a new album of songs coming in May 2022. Trouble Ain't Ours to Keep features all original songs and the first two co-writes I've ever done. Here's a sample track for you. Peace.
