Album Notes
"About seven years ago, I had figured my music career was pretty much spent. Then a friend of mine, Milo Skinner, invited me to play music with him at our church. I had not played in a band for almost seven years and had not really practiced much, so I was a little rusty. Through the encouragement of Milo and my family, I began playing regularly again.

A few years later, a drummer I was playing with, Pete Yaskovic, asked me to play in a country band with him for an amazing singer named Gretchen Owens. I played with 'Gert' for the next two years, while still playing with Milo and many other friends on Sundays, at festivals, at bars and pretty much wherever.

I also used to spend lunches meeting with Milo and a few other musicians to work on songs or play jazz (which I played horribly) or just talk about life and music. I had one song that I worked on with Milo, called Alright This Time. It was a fictional tale about coming back from tour and finding your house empty and your girlfriend/wife gone. It was kind of silly and cliche, but it got me off my butt and writing again.

In September of 2015, Milo Skinner was flying with his grandfather in Creswell, OR when their plane malfunctioned and caught fire while they tried to return to fix it. The ensuing accident took his and his grandfather's lives. To say I was devastated would be an understatement.

A few months later, I was playing the chords to Alright This Time and a new song came out. While I was writing this new story about coping with life after losing someone, I had a Milo inspired epiphany. I needed to make an album.

I started a Kickstarter to fund my album and began writing more and more songs. At first, what came out was similar to the country that I was playing. Over time the songs were transformed into the sum of all of my influences. From the rock and roll of the late 70's and early 80's that I was raised on, to the blues, funk, and soul I listened to with my Dad when we visited him in Detroit, to the pop and grunge of the 90's that dominated high school and college for me.

All my old friends were there, Skynyrd, Alman Brothers, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Roger Clyne, Garth Brooks and much more found their ways into my songs.

Ultimately, this is a labor of love and a way to honor my friend while also to fulfill a dream that I thought I never would. In the wide range of song styles, hopefully, there is something for everyone on homemade."
