5:00 - 5:45 Mountain Chaser
When I began writing songs, it was always alone with my guitar in my room, hoping the house is empty, hesitating, resisting, inching forward. The houses have changed. Maybe slightly the speed of forward motion. But not much else, and certainly not the guitar.
Years of serendipitous friendship and collaboration have grown and stretched my ability, my range, my confidence, and delivered me again to the doorstep of the ever evasive but inescapably magnetic solo project.
Sounds of church music from my childhood are cast in the bedrock, and mysterious hints of sacred music I don't think I really "know". Threads of the songs made by my friends and our bands of the past are woven throughout. I wear them like a treasured garment and wrap them around my shoulders as I take to the road.
