Album Notes
The No Where Fast album is about the blessings of American small town life that often we overlook and take for granted until we wake up one day at an age where experience has taught us better!

The title track, No Where Fast is a song about wanting to slow down and enjoy living life, about spending time with the one you love. We all get caught up in the day to day grind. We often lose sight of the blessings of simple things. This song is a little reminder.

Livin' and Lovin' talks about enduring life's challenges and changes. Change is inevitable, but with commitment from both parties, it can get better! This was the first song I penned after recording the Long Way from Home project in 2017.

Pretty Little Lies was described by a friend of mine from New Orleans, Louisiana, as an angry guitar song. It's a look at the daily headlines and the way they are portrayed to the public by the news agencies. Truth seems to be so hard to find these days. This one was a little bit different with the incorporation of multiple synthesizers and the horns section! It was a lot of fun!

I really love the Blues style; I sat down and wrote Workin' Man Blues because I wanted to include something from the genre. I think the lyrics satrically express the feeling of working hard, but often just getting by. I had fun playing the guitars on this one!

I wrote the original Dance a Little over 15 years ago. I remember letting a friend of mine and his wife hear the original when I lived in South Louisiana. I lost the original and yet the idea stuck with me. This song was about my maternal grandparents who met in New Orleans during the World War II time period. As part of the 'Greatest Generation' they endured a lot of challenges both personally and on the war front.

Now I Do is about innocence, and a look at simple small town life. Growing up we think we have it so hard, and yet those are often the best times of our lives! I am glad I grew up in a small town!

I played a rough version of The Long Goodbye for a friend named Joe, who toured for years with a big country name. He was kind and immediately said he loved the song, but offered some tweak ideas. Songs are a personal thing often, but I took his challenges to heart. I spent more time on this simple tune than I do most of them. From a soldier to an aging married couple to a hurting family, we all have our long goodbyes at some point in our lives. This was recorded totally unplugged using a classical guitar and simple vocal harmonies.

I think some time or another we all think to ourselves, "What am I doing?". Only Heaven Knows is about the guy who wants his dream, and the girl. I am not sure that the popular philosophy of "you can have it all" really holds true!

Goin' Down to the River was originally recorded during the Long Way from Home project. It really wasn't time to share it at that time. After some thinking, and some remixing ideas, this version came about. It's a little more raw than most of the tracks with the mix of the acoustic guitar, but I really like how this one turned out. I hope you do too!

Road to Amarillo, a bluesy guitar instrumental piece, came about because my wife and son gave me a new brass slide. Both glass and brass slides were used in the making of this one. I get the mental picture of riding a motorcycle from Oklahoma City to Amarillo with headphones blasting this one into one's head.

The No Where Fast album is the sum of seven months of writing and recording. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. I would like to specially thank the following for their help in listening, critiquing and offering general feedback: Jameson Massey, Brian Ponder, and Joe Irrera.

I would also like to thank my wife, Cammie, and my three children: Kayla, Jonah, and Anna. You all help to keep me grounded and rooted in this crazy world!
