At long last, I'm pleased to announce that my debut solo recording, Lunescapes Volume One is nearly ready for release. The record is mixed & mastered (we're just waiting on vinyl production to be completed) and will be made available later this winter, digitally as well as limited edition vinyl, CD & cassette via The Satellite Union & Psychic Troubles Tapes.

(ICYMI) I wrote a little cowboy Christmas song a called “All Christmases Past” and it’s available for download via my bandcamp, iTunes & Amazon. And now, you can also stream via Spotify, Google Play & all the other usual outlets. A portion of download sales will be donated to Angel Food East, Inc. (a local food bank here in the Hudson Valley). Thanks for listening and Happy Hollidays!
