I met Isha Love @ TAXI this past weekend. Her playing reminded me a lot of Joe Sample. I met Joe @ the Baked Potato many years ago. He was sitting in the audience behind me & then Don Randi called him up on stage just to jam!  I forgot if I had posted of Joe's passing in September, I didn't see it on my timeline.

Cousin Dave 

Thanks for prayin', & for stoppin' by here Dave was comin' over to my house before I was born. His dad (my uncle) was very close to my mom (his kid sister) & visited often. So he's is very much my older brother. As of today, 11/21, he's still @ Olympia Medical Center & will not be home for Thanksgiving, but by the grace of God, he's improving.

Yes, there is a lyric for a song that is NOT on the CD. It was in rotation for over a month on TEE-M's unsigned show back in the summer, & will be posted to listen to as soon as I find the file! :) Many of you requested this one for my next CD, & I was really surprised at how many of you took the time to email me while it was on the air. Let me know your thoughts either by email or taggin' my guestbook!


Well, I've only been here about a week, & so many of you have found me! I am humbled & honored that you've taken the time to say hello! The lyrics are still being posted, please keep checking back, I should heve 'em all up along with previews for the next one soon!


Hope you're havin' fun! New CD, new songs, new friends & a new CD all at once! The JEMS show was amazing, & Sumako Azuma herself performed for the first time in 10 years, brought a tear to my eyes. I now have 15 original Christmas songs, 32 recent coffeehouse songs, 76 Christian songs, 27 instrumentals & a couple hundred I still haven't decided what to do with yet. let me know whatcha wanna hear & I'll consider that for the next CD!
