This CD may be described as Red Dirt Rhythm and Blues and “other stuff”. It is defiantly Home Grown - Hand Crafted - Always Fresh - Story Telling that uses original Rock, Jazz, Folk, and Americana vehicles.
I have never liked the confinement of genres. It is difficult to describe my music based on their limits. I am a ravenous music listener. And, I purchase songs that I think will help me with my song writing or that I feel my band should learn. I like most types of music. However, I am most interested in anything new. Blues, Alternative, Rock, and Singer / Songwriter are the categories I seem to be the most drawn to. I’ve been writing all styles of music for years. Many of these songs began with simply visualizing people or landscapes. Romance and History are resources I enjoy exploring.
The hardest thing about song writing is finding the time to just sit down and do it. There is always something important to do like sorting socks or watching bad TV. I have written hundreds of songs and these are some of the best.
As he built his home studio into one of the finest in Oklahoma, Tripp and I recorded a couple of CDs worth of my tunes. Many were recorded before the ink was dry. As his studio evolved it became apparent that we were making a CD.
I hope you enjoy this project. Stay tuned for more.
