Ashland Daily Tidings 9/11/07 Memorial Service

I first started writing songs and performing them publically when I was a senior in high school back in 1975. Since then, at one time or another, it's been a career ambition, a serious hobby, a form of therapy, just plain fun, or some combination of these things. Now it's something I do mainly for pleasure and self-expression. During the period between 1987 and 1996 I did a lot of performing and recording in Seattle, mostly with my friend and musical partner Victor Cummings. Below are some albums from that period as well as some newer ones. They are all CD-R's that I've burned myself and should play on any CD player made within the last 10+ years.

You can buy my CD's by clicking the "Purchase" links below ($12.00 each, shipping and handling included), or you can now download mp3's of any or all of my songs on a DONATION BASIS.

Just click on "Download Songs" for any of the albums below. You'll find a player with all the songs from that album on it. Click on any song to listen to it. If you like it and want to download it, hit the stop button on the player. Then click on the little downward pointing arrow to the right of the song title to begin the download. It's that simple. Donate whatever you feel the music is worth to you or whatever you can afford. NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL (or too big!). Donate now. Donate later. Donate anytime. Just click on the "DIGITAL TIP JAR" below.

If you like what you hear, take as much as you want and donate what you can. Sharing with your friends is fine by me, just encourage them to visit my site and make a donation if they like the music. I'm more interested in finding an audience than in making a fortune. These are simple recordings but they still cost plenty to make. I really appreciate your support and encouragement and every little bit helps.

Terms of Surrender ~ Part One - From the end of 2006 and well into 2007, I experienced a major burst of songwriting inspiration. Over 20 songs in less than a year. I said this about Plan B but it's true again:
These are some of my favorite and in my opinion, strongest songs. There were too many to fit on one CD, so I've split the project into two. Part One is more upbeat and topical. Part Two is more relaxed and introspective. All of the songs feature more poetic license, metaphor, and imagination than my past work. They're all "true," but less literally so.

THE TIME OF WONDER - I recorded this album in 1993 with Victor Cummings and several other musician friends. It has a very warm hypnotic live acoustic feeling. The songs are mostly about meeting and falling in love with my wife Samarra.

TURN THE CORNER  - This is another solo performance-just me and guitar-recorded in 1991. It remains one of my all-time favorite recordings and contains some of my favorite songs, many of which I still sing today. (Originally longer, I had to trim 2 songs to get it to fit on an 80 minute CD! ) A musical diary of one relationship that allowed me to "Turn the Corner" on a long standing and difficult pattern.

5. Come Clean 6. Something More 7. Catalyst 8. Flexible Guy 9. Give Up 10. No Hope 11. Right Behind You 12. Her Own Way 13. Friends Forever
DON'T GET SWEPT - I recorded this album in 1990 with my friend and musical partner Victor Cummings. Victor played mandolin and electric guitar, sang harmony vocals and added multiple keyboard tracks. It was by far our best selling album. Definitely in the pop vein, the songs explore the grey area between being friends and lovers, the pain of love and loss, and the joys of being single.

SONG TITLES: 1. Don't Get Swept 2. In the Grey 3. Dance 4. Do it Now 5. Free 6. Marry Somebody 7. If She Knows 8. Ready 9. Forever 10. Life After Love 11. Together Alone 12. Silhouette 13. L.W.S.T.D.
