Re: Tus besos

I just listened to several of your songs. Your team is certainly prolific. Are you performing your songs live?

Re: A work in progress

I wrote most of the first draft a few days after participating in a jam in Luckenbach, TX. It will have to have an outlaw country feel to the music. This is the morning revision: My brothers an alcoholic, he brings the family shame He goes to AA but doesn’t say his last name. He has to stay sober ev...

Re: You Wake Up

I've been ruminating about this one. My best songs are usually about people that I know well but don't have an emotional relationship with. When a piece is about a loved one or myself, it gets kind of "sticky" and self indulgent. When its about someone else, I'm able to approach it from a neutral po...

Re: You Wake Up

I hadn't looked in the Sunday forum for a couple weeks so I missed this until now. Very nice. Perhaps your best song/recording that I've heard. Very gentle and thoughtful.
Great tribute to David.

No responses ? Sheesh. Anybody? How does one narrow down people to single dimension, to focus on the humerous aspect while negating the tragic?
