Album Notes
This is the recorded version of me playing for you on your front porch, no studio tricks, just me, my guitar and the song. Hopefully a couple will strike a chord, be that funny or otherwise. Some songs would be described as novelties, some are better left without description. Now, song descriptions...

Not Just a Fish gives a taste of the sportfishing life down on the Gulf Coast. Written prior to the oil spill closing down the water there, it's a bittersweet celebration of what was and hopefully will be again.

The New Pyramid is the 21st century green machine.

Cadbury Egg is a sad story about addiction.

Mr. Him-in-a-Hole is the story of a cat who lived in a hole.

Copperfish Blues is the ballad of Hanes Hoffman, copper artist in Wilmington, NC.

Beaufort is Better captures the essence of a cool town on the water in less than 2 minutes. (Bo-fert), NC not (Byoo-fert), SC.

Beach Day is grown-up summertime fun.

Old Tire is a metaphor.

Love Life is a different highway sign.

Through Your Mind is about not knowing much of anything but hoping for everything.

What Should I Say is distance, distance and more distance.
