BLOG

Once all the dust settles, I get thinking. Then I get writing. This is my no-holds-barred space to give it to you straight. I’m grateful to have you stop by to read the blog ‘cause I’ve gotten into documenting. Whatever it may be, you’ll find it here. All about my projects and collaborations, the stories I hear, the struggles we all face. Life is a lesson in everything. I’ll say hi from the road while I’m on tour too and I’d love hear from you, too.

Get content you won't get anywhere else and be the first to know with everything that's going on. If there's a club, this is it. You in?

21. W.B. Walker To The Rescue

I like Sturgill's new record. I put myself in his creative shoes before listening to it. How would I follow up Metamodern Sounds in Country Music. The only option is to make something totally different. There are a few tracks that harken to past releases but for the...

20. Starbucks with Sturgill Simpson

I make little efforts of consistency. So far, restless sleeping has been the only entry on that list. I'd harass Melanie and her bassist, Beth, when on the road, as they brought their own coffee making supplies into someone else's home. I saw it as almost a rude...

19. Kentucky; Unbridled Spirit

In a La Quinta parking lot in Loudon, TN, I had the best half-assed sleep yet. I could feel a change in the weather as a thick morning dew gives me a little extra privacy on the windows. It's my quickest transition from sleeping quarters to driver's seat, as well....

18. New Year’s Eve 1979; I Am My Father’s Son

My father doesn't fly. Obviously he has. Once sitting next to me as a chaperone on a grade twelve grad trip to Edmonton. The slightest turbulence caused groans of possible death. I fly, but if time allows would much rather drive. As a family, Dad and Mom loaded us up...

16. The Day Stompin’ Tom Connors Died

Canadian Legend, Stompin' Tom Connors, passed away on March 6, 2013. That morning had a similar tone to the previous five. Petty arguing, frustrations and jealousy. In a long distance relationship, as the majority of them seemed to be in my life, I was the one that...

Miguelito’s Little Green Car

In June of 2013, I became a first-time uncle. At the risk of selfishness, it was the perfect gift. An opportunity to assume the loose responsibilities of raising another human without having to commit to the drastic lifestyle change and financial toil. My brother and...

A Humble Thank You to The Hag

Death is beautiful. With the numerous passings of musical icons in the past few months, I felt my respects were best paid in silence. Resisting from a passing tweet or Facebook post but truly giving a few minutes to the appreciation for their lifelong dedication to...

The Ladies Have Us Covered

The arrogance and dividing efforts were displayed in spades last May when radio consultant, Keith Hill used the painfully weak metaphor of a tossed salad to provide an unsolicited opinion on how to "fix" your radio ratings. I could get behind the usage of the term...

The Mammoths of Kyle, Saskatchewan

On a fall day in 1964, amidst road construction 5 km outside the rural village of Kyle, Saskatchewan, a scraper blade unearthed what was to be a major historical discovery. As the southwest corner of the province boasts home to fossils ranging back 70 million years;...

Mr. Misunderstood, Understood

In yet another act of distinctly setting himself apart from the rest of the wheel, Eric Church got his Drake on and dropped a fully-produced, 10 song album into his Church Choir's inboxes - an "old school" subscription paid fan club - giving thousands of $49.99/yr...
