In the recording studio 

Currently, I am working on a new album which some of you know has been a long time coming, since I've been a studio producer for other artists for a while now. Mostly originals will be featured as well as a few instrumentals. I'll be singing and playing acoustic and electric guitar, ukulele, and steel guitar. Many of the tunes I've been playing live for a few years, slowly changing arrangements as I go. I'll give you a taste with a few tracks to listen to soon so stay tuned.
