Album Notes
One day en route to work, I was trudging up some subway steps when an impatient lady behind me grumbled something about “all the slowpokes.” I remembered something a friend of a friend once said, along the lines of: “It’s the slowpokes who need the lovin,’” and that turned into the song “Comfort You Up”. SLOWPOKES as the new album title fits in a bunch of ways: although I’ve been singing and writing songs since I was a kid, it took me until my early 30s to actually stand up in front of people with a guitar; and making my first album, LAND OF MY BABY, took a couple of years. Certain things can be pretty sweet when you let them bloom to their full potential.

SLOWPOKES features the talents of many folks, including: Rod Hohl (Mary Lee's Corvette, Yarn), Andy Hess (Gov't Mule, The Black Crowes, Tina Turner), Steve Goulding (Garland Jeffreys, The Mekons, Elvis Costello), Rob Clores (Colin Hay), Rob Jost (Imogen Heap), Boo Reiners (Demolition String Band, Klezmatics), and Scott Anthony (Daniel Lanois, Lloyd Cole). Robert Scheffler is an amazing NYC singer-songwriter who helped me push some of my unfinished ideas into real songs, and we ended up writing (and singing) a beautiful duet. Slowpokes was produced by Scott Anthony, Rod Hohl, and me, and was mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Gene Paul (son of Les Paul).
