It's All Coming Together

With the help of Jane Harbury, publicist extraordinaire, I'll be launching JIGGERY POKERY on June 26th at The Painted Lady in Toronto after about half a dozen radio interviews and performances.  So if you'd like to see and hear what…

How about them videos?

The latest batch of lyric videos has been a blast to create.  When I shot all of that Super-8 film footage decades ago I could not have imagined where it would end up.  And the vintage film archives have been…

New Look, New Record

If you've been here before, you've noticed that it does not look the same.  Finally!

Welcome back, and welcome to the new record.  The official release is still some ways off, but close friends get benefits around here.

"Blue Skies" on your ceiling?

Hello and happy Wednesday - it's a beautiful day and here's the song to prove it.

"Blue Skies on the Ceiling" did not make the cut for the new record, but it does wake me up quicker than a…

Get That Funny Feeling

This week's video post is a preview from "Jiggery Pokery", a lyric video for one of the bonus tracks.

"I Got A Feelin'" is quite the toe-tapper, if we do say so.  We left it off the record because…

Ah, Saturdays

Our folks liked to laze-in a bit on Saturdays, so we would create our own morning meals to enjoy in front of the TV.  Cartoons were an important ritual.  Then we were all set to our tasks, either something that…

Dad was a pretty chipper guy and he loved to sway to some good rooty tunes.  I hope he would…

Boodles Doodles

I just wanted to see "Boodles Doodles" on the screen.  And I thought it might be justified as this week's video offering fits the title.

I will run out of these at some point, then it will be time…

Doodle videos

You may have seen my recent doodle videos.  I thought they might make an interesting alternative to the other slide-show videos I've seen around, and which you will certainly see here at some points over the coming months.

Prodigal songs?

Whatever we may call them, they're overdue.

The artist is working on the cover, a couple of lyric-videos have been put together, and a million other things. 

And it's Wednesday, so we will call this the first "Willodious…

Time keeps on slippin', slippin'...

Making records can take a long time and most of one's attention.  The dream-trip to France took a few weeks off the table, as has the novel and screenplay writing.  And yet, I have been moving forward on the next…

More writing, recording, and rhythmatic

It seems that I just can't stop writing, but somehow never in blogs.
The trashy pulp fiction opus "Luckiest Guy in Town" now has its eighth draft completed, research for two screenplays is well under way, an old idea for…
