"Kenny is truly a bright light. This new material is really awesome. It reminds me of Joe Henry, Carl Broemmel and Elvis Costello, with production worthy of Jon Brion. I thought Six String Drag was awesome, and several years ago, my old band had…"

12/12/12 finds me living in a new place, with a new coffee shop, two new recordings on the cusp of release, Dave Brubek and Ravi Shankar recently passed. It's been years since I shed a tear at the demise of the old No Depression magazine. Finally, I'm back in the orbit. Nice to be back.
