New album under construction

For many years, I've been accruing songs that couldn't necessarily move a bar full of people to dance but I always thought were "pretty good."  By some coincidence or not, these quiet and under-performed songs were written largely in and about the upper Midwest...even though I spent about 50% of my nights in Massachusetts during the time they came into my life.  I'm finally recording this set, and am so far surprised by how cohesive the thing seems to be.  The photo below was taken a few blocks from the house I grew up in, and it seems like a fitting book cover for the new music.

I'll be playing some of these new songs on the internet this week, though the virtual concert hall Concert Window.  I hope you can tune in!

Concert Window Live Stream

This is cool: I'm doing a pay-what-you-want live webcast via Concert Window on Thursday, September 25.  I'll be singing songs from my living room, taking requests, and answering your hardest questions all in real time.  YOU can watch and listen to this happen wherever a decent WIFI connection is available.  Ben Cosgrove will be joining me in the living room of course, because my songs sound better when he's involved.

Oh, and this show is definitely BYOB, so make sure you treat yourself to something nice.   Online "tickets" are now available through the link below - I hope you tune in!  

Showtime is 9 PM EDT.
