News!

December 14, 2017 - My 26th solo album "Dropical Storm Spike" is released today! This is a tribute album to my cat Spike who passed away on July 21, 2017.

NEW SOLO ALBUM - December 14, 2017!

DROPICAL STORM SPIKE is my 26th solo album of all original songs and is the most personal album I've ever recorded.
This album is a tribute to my beloved cat of 15 years, Spike who passed away on July 21, 2017. All of these songs were written as part of a batch of about 30 in total during the last few weeks of his life. We had a routine where I would give him his heart medicine and then we would have a songwriting session. The only exception to this is the opening song "To Last A Lifetime" which I wrote as Spike's tribute song about a month after he passed. Spike was with me from January 2, 2002 until July 21, 2017. The picture on the cover is an accurate depiction of how I have started every morning since he passed. I go outside and try to make a universal/spiritual connection to Spike. It's a very personal time for us.
I performed all instruments and vocals in my recording studio, The Droperating Room.
