It's looking like 2016 is going to be jammed with exciting projects. In January, "the matter men" will be releasing woof, their second CD, and I have to say it sounds great. It's highly diverse and takes you on a wonderful sonic ride. Lot's of solo, duo and small ensemble work is booked ranging from americana to neoclassical. 2016 is looking to be wonderful. Let's hope,


 I recorded this little ditty today 16 Saturday 1-2. Happy 2016.

you're too kind Carl. Thanks for your support!
