I am a word man. I don't know how my songs get written. I have planned some, but many just show up when the time is right. Most of the time tunes come relatively easy. The words are my test, and it's the words that planted the seed for this book of lyrics. From "Chilly Out Tonight," which is the introduction of this collection, comes this line. "I only sing of the moments that spring from the heart of a well somewhere within." There it is.
Some of what you read is me, some you, and some people and events neither of us experienced first hand. As it passes through me to you, I hope it moves you in some way. Laughter, tears, joy, sadness, love, despair, hope, redemption, faith. If some piece of this touches you, I am grateful.
