Ghosts in the Attic started with two members from the band Satin Stone that was a band on the campus on Lyon College. A few years after graduation, Jef Cotham and I started jamming and wrote several new songs and played and recorded them on limited equipment and budget but we loved recording and playing music together. Jef was great at writing lyrics and I did most of the music. We sent off our early stuff through the mail on CD's if you can believe that! We got a few calls from Record Producers but nothing was to become of it. They wanted us to pay for them to record us. Due to age, jobs and responsibilities, Jef moved away and I joined a really good cover band called, "Twisted Halo" We were going places! We headlined the Summerset festival in North Little Rock and made the paper even though we had a following it was not paying enough to do this full time so the responsible part of me quit and focused on work and making a living. Jef decided to become a novelist. I quit playing for several years and finally started playing at a local church with a great contemporary band and I still do today.
Everett is an amazing musician that can play any instrument but drums. We jammed one time and really got along and we kept running into each other. I gave his son drum lessons and that turned into a great friendship that still goes on today. He asked me from time to time to play a few clubs with him and about 6 years ago I got some good recording equipment and we started writing and recording music together ever since. Now Everett plays at the same church I do and we are the best of friends.
