I have been playing my Bedell Blackbird Vegan Parlor Guitar since February 2016 and love that Bedell Guitars is committed to thoughtfully and sustainably honoring our connectivity between the woods of our forests and our music, creating beautifully crafted instruments from “seed to song.” Bedell is superb in delivering on both compassion and tone, and I am so proud to be a part of the Bedell Family.

Podcast: On the Village Green

Podcast: On the Village GreenI spent a lovely afternoon back in February chatting with the ever-charming Richard Byford of Byway Entertainment. His delightful podcast “On the Village Green” is available on Podomatic, iTunes, and on the Byway Entertainment Blog. We talked about a great many things including many of the challenges I have faced and how those challenges have informed and benefited my songwriting. In fact, you could say we discussed “Life, Death, and the Spaces Between.” *wink*

Songs featured: Live Like An Angel, Rodeo, You Gave Me Wings


Artist Rep for Shubb Capos – update

Shubb Fine Tune CapoStopped by the Shubb booth at NAMM this past Saturday and the lovely Rick Shubb gifted me with the brand new Shubb Fine Tune Capo. This wonderful new capo has an innovative adjusting knob makes it the most ergonomic screw operated capo. Because the knob maintains a fixed relationship with the frame, for improved ease of use, and for the lowest profile when stored behind the nut. This is my new favorite capo! Thank you, Rick Shubb! <3
