The 513

A song about trains, love, and choices (but aren’t they all?). This is one of the first songs I laid down after I broke out my drum set after 20 years in storage. Good call. Real drums are fun. [Lyrics]


Gwendolyn is an actual a goddess. The background video was some dunes I was shooting in Death Valley, and these oblivious young ladies ruined my shot — so I vowed to use it somewhere. Might as well connect a nice love song about a goddess with real life revenge. [Lyrics]

Death Valley

Sort of my signature song, which is about writing this song about Death Valley when we were at Death Valley.  This was two mics live on separate tracks for separation, which worked out okay. [Lyrics]

Tiger in my Heart

A truly goofy song. So happy Jeff Schmitz shot this first-time live version. December 6, 2019 @Spacebar – I fully expected a crash-n-burn trying this, but didn’t … quite. [Lyrics]

Trail of Blood (sneak peak)

Old-timey sounding faux-western tune about a bandit and his pursuer, with yodeling.

I just mixed this, but intend to do a video… not sure what.  Anyway, I also intended to re-record the whole thing, but it is what it is – simple and straightforward, with yodeling.  [Lyrics]

The Outlaw Pearl Hart (a true story)

Pearl was one of the last stagecoach robbers, and the only woman (to survive the robbery). She got caught, but knew how to work the press. [Lyrics]

This is a lay-it-down-quick-and-dirty-right-after-writing-it two-track recording from March 2019. I shot and cut the video v1 that same day too. This is a quick reshoot/recut remix, but still just bare bones.
