After coming home from a long tour with my band, Sparta, I wanted to sit in my house and play acoustic guitar quietly. The tour had been loud and chaotic and I was simply trying to level out. I liked how things were sounding, so I began recording them in my studio.
These 5 songs are the beginning of what I hope will be an on going series of recordings, hopefully adding more and more friends to the fold. This volume has a few friends of mine adding some goodness.
On the song "On My Way Back Home Again" Ray Wallace of Secret Life of Sparrows (and my favorite tattoo artist/painter) played harmonica and sang back ups.
Chris Heinrich, who also plays guitar/pedal steel in my other band Sleepercar, adds some incredible Ukulele on "Coastlines".
And I was lucky enough to have the very talented Maura Davis of Denali and Ambulette sing with me on "Take it Back".
This recording will be coming out in a couple of months and I will keep this page updated with news as it is available. It will be available on my label Civil Defense League and you can check out other releases at that site-www.civildefenseleague.net-
