Greetings from Dacula, GA, USA and Happy New Year.

I hope you are being safe and getting through the pandemic. As live events dried up, I worked on new tunes and may have put together enough that are suitable for a new CD to be released soon. You can hear most of them on my Soundcloud page: (expired link)

Best to everyone and be safe,

Greetings from Dacula, GA, USA! I hope everyone is doing well and listening to a lot of good music. Spring has been great for me as a solo musician and with The Now and Then Band, even with the 2 events that got rained out. I have had some Saturdays with 2 appearances and have 2 coming up on May 2. It would be great to meet anyone from my N1M mailing list, so don't hesitate to introduce yourself if you are at any of my events.

I posted a tune on CD Baby. You can hear the whole song, not just a 30 second clip, as you can with any of my CD Baby posting. I hope you like the tune and would appreciate any comments.

Keep on pickin',
