Album Notes
A Celebration of Life is my first album. The making of it has been possible by the generosity of Zak King, Scott Kiefner, Jake Pardee and Bradley Royds. Thanks to master guitarist, Joe Morris, for inspiring me to make an album. Thanks to Skuli Thorsteinsson for pushing me to make this album. Extra special thanks to Jake Pardee for talking me into making an album many years ago. Timing was perfect in late 2018 and Zak, Scott, Jake and I got together on December 28th and made the trio takes on this album in just five hours of actual playing. We recorded the trio live at Maritime Music Studio in Gloucester, Massachusetts. The two solo guitar pieces in this album, “Transitions of the Heart” and “Change of Heart”, were recorded on June 23rd, 2019 at the same studio.

May everyone who listens to this album find comfort in the music I have composed as well as the way in which Zak, Scott and I have played it—straight from the heart!
