Nothing New Comes From Normal is my original pandemic song. It was sort of commissioned - the first part of the pandemic experience came kind of close to Lent, so the two themes merged in my head. It was first done for an online church service, as it happens.

"Someday when all this is over, I'll come 'round and see you my friend" is the first line in my new song Autumn Leaves Swirling. It's about some time in the future when we can sit and shoot the breeze about stuff that doesn't feel related to our very survival all the time. It's one of my pandemic songs, but never mentions the pandemic - it's about hope and healing and relationship.

Family Christmas - I felt like if there were ever a year when I had to put this one out, this is it. It's a faith-based Christmas song, just so you know. I'm not trying to mess with anyone's head - just expressing myself in my songs.

I Do What I Do (And I Don't Pay No Mind) - is a smattering of down-home philosophical thoughts about living in the present and feeling free.

Heart Portal - it's about that rare moment of instant connection when you catch someone's eye across a room and you feel like you want to be looking into those eyes forever.

Nobody's perfect, and no political system is perfect. But for all its faults, democracy is the best bet for giving people the most possible freedom to be all they can. I wanna be like Democracy. That's my song.

Healing Power of the Blues (On Catharsis) - The blues make you feel good about feeling bad. Strictly speaking, this song ain't exactly blues - but that's what it's about.

I Don't Know What I Want is my blues song about regret - not for decisions made that went wrong - but for decisions never made and adventures unattempted.

I Lie to You Sometimes is about how we push people away when we're nervous about disappointing them or we feel like they're getting too close, and the downsides to doing that.

I Want to Be With You All the Time is my most streamed song by far. It's that early all-encompassing enthusiasm that goes with a fresh romance, but also a kind of existential point of view about the moments that give life meaning and how stringing those together creates a long term relationship.

Nails and Thumbs 20200728201800615 Unemployed, underemployed - I've been both. This song is about being desperate for work, to live - even more than enjoying music. But of course I had to write a song about it.

They Gonna Blame You For Something 202007281600155801 - a cautionary song. Even positive change will get opposition from those who benefit from things being just the way they are (or who think they benefit). Like the hockey players say - "Keep your head on a swivel!"

I Really Like Feeling This Way 20200729113509151 - Every once in a while I write a country song! It just happens. This joyful tune is about that time when attraction is turning into love, but doesn't want to say so and jinx it.

Falling Hard To Smithereens 20200729103449755 - This song comes out of the few times in my life when I felt completely devastated, lost, and like all I had hoped and worked for was for nothing. I hope it helps anyone going through that to feel less alone and more understood.
