Some Tunes for You

The current CD's available now are titled "DOWN IN BLUEe" and "Full Throttle", featuring music from deep Delta blues to Ragtime styles and a handful of original tunes. Down in Blue features musicians from both Florida and New England including Barry Johnson on second and lead guitar, Bill Koetting on Acoustic Bass, Roger Ebacher on Congas, Scott Shetler on clarinet, Justin Quinn on harp, Joyce Anderson on Fiddle and harmony vocals and Jon Ross on Bass, Mandolin and who is also the producer of this record. Copies can be purchased direct at any Gigs, by emailing this site and will soon be available on CD Baby and itunes, along with local music stores. Price is 15.00. plus 5.00 shipping

"FULL THROTTLE" was recorded in Nashville in June 2017 and features some original tunes and some Novelty type songs. The record is a mix of solo tunes along with some ensemble work with both Florida musicians and Nashville musicians. The musicians on this projevt were Dennis Crouch on Upright Bass, Shad Cobb on Fiddle, Josh Hunt on percussion, Barry Johnson on lead guitar, Richard Smith on lead guitar and Henry Hartman on Upright bass. Both CD's are now available on Spotify, Itunes, Amazon Music, Pandora, CD Baby and others or can be ordered directly from this site by dropping me an email. CD's are 15.00 plus 5.00 shipping.

I have one song featured on the NATIONAL GUITARS CATALOG / CD package called "ARTISTS IN RESONANCE" Vol 2, which is available from National guitars. It features a song by many of the great artists that play National Guitars, along with a catalog with specs of many of the models that they produce. It is a really spectacular presentation. The song I playon that is "Savannah Mama" by Blind Willie McTell, and is peerformed to demonstate the sound of a Nationa;l Baritone Estralita 12 String Custom Guitar made of Walnut.

Update May 2020:

I have recently recorded a new CD project which was finished in Nashville this past June (2019) and was just released. It includes 18 cuts recorded at Richard Smiths studio and has a really nice line up of musicians on it. It includes Dennis Crouch on Upright bass, Stuart Duncan on fiddle and Mandolin,Andrea Zonn on fiddle and backup vocals, Josh Hunt on percussion, Jim Stevenson on dobro and Richard Smith on second guitar. About half the tunes on the CD are just me solo and include a number of new songs I have written along with my traditional Blues and Ragtime stuff. The title of the CD is called" Don't Forget it", and I will have more info on it up here soon, and maybe some sound clips when I get the time. It is available either here, Amazon, or ITunes but I am not streaming this one for now.

The steel and Resophonic guitars I play are all produced by NATIONAL RESOPHONIC GUITARS in San Luis Obispo Ca. The flattop guitars used on these recordings are by COLLINGS guitars with the exception of one guitar played on DOWN IN BLUE, that I built in JULIUS BORGES shop. It is based on a Gibson 185 style in Brazilian Rosewood and Red Spruce. All sound equipment and pickups used in all the live shows and some select recordings are by FISHMAN TRANSDUCERS.
