Boggia Donnelly Hillis & Wisely, Three Hour Tour

East coast dates with three long-admired singer/songwriters. What’s with the water in Philadelphia? So much talent in one place. Well for sure, I’ll be drinking plenty of it while rehearsing and touring with home-town kids Jim Boggia, Pete Donnelly and Cliff Hillis. You see, the four of us are starting a band and it’s called […]

ringer t-shirt tee. blue sky, wings, Saranac

Transparent recording process reveals all. Turning on to Ryan Adams hit me like a thunder bolt. In admiration of how prolific an artist he is, and how wonderfully nonchalant nearly all his work tends to be, I wrote this one as quickly and decisively as possible.

The Singles Series: It’s Better Not To Care

broken Gibson 125

Transparent recording process reveals all. In the midst of yearning for someone who doesn’t feel the same about you, who of us hasn’t wished that they’d have played it a bit cooler? Stayed aloof. Given less. Kept your stock high in the eyes of someone you wish would love you back? Good luck with that. […]
