ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I sometimes don't know what to think when someone comes up to me and says I remind them of Nanci Griffith, or Allison Krauss, or Emmylou Harris. I take it as a great compliment, of course - but the only shoes I want to fit into are my own.

This CD is my second outing...the first was just me and my guitar. This time, I got a little help from Mike Westbrook, Jerry Abrams and Ted Lindsay.

Mike Westbrook and Ted Lindsay, both songwriters themselves, are two thirds of Ida Claire, a short lived Americana trio we had back in the year 2000. Jerry Abrams' regular gig is as bass man for Houston Marchman, a Texas singer/songwriter who's been making quite a splash in those parts. Jerry was good enough to pull an all nighter with me and give life to the songs he played on that I didn't know was there. I am truly thrilled with the work he put into those songs....A side note about Jerry; he survived the headache of an old instrument in need of repair, just so I could have my dad's bass fiddle on this CD. Four of the songs were recorded with Dad's bass fiddle, and three others using Jerry's bass fiddle.

Looking back, I can see that this CD, much like my first CD, really is about the end of my ten year marriage. It naturally bleeds into the relationship I found myself involved in very quickly after its demise.

The songs are personal, but not so personal, I hope - that you can't find some feeling you can relate to.

Since this album I've recorded a third CD, Old Horses (see my web site or search CD Baby)and am about to put together a bare-bones guitar/vocal CD of all previously unreleased songs.

Thanks for hanging in this far. Hope you like the music.
