Lonely in America

Released January 2012

No Angel

Released August 2009

I wrote the majority of this record in 2 weeks. 3 weeks later I was in Rhinebeck with my friend and producer Paul Antonell where we decided that we’d cut this record much like the last one – every song off the floor with live vocals and limiting ourselves to only 3 takes. In every case on this new album [and incidentally, Neil, true to your belief that the first take is always the best...] the tracks that made the record were and are the first takes – without exception!

Love That Shine

Released July 2007

I’ve been fortunate to have recorded 6 records in my career, "Love That Shine" being the 7th. I’ve also been blessed to have had some friends play on this record that happen to be some of the best musicians anywhere.
