Hi there!

I'm a singer, a songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist, and a recording engineer. I made this site to share what I do with you. You might have heard me play at the Skunk Hollow Tavern open mic on Wednesday nights in Hartland Four Corners, VT, where I've been playing since April 2011. Here's a playlist of songs I play at the open mic. I've got a home recording studio and I've set up the gear at several locations for live recordings of jams with various combinations of a small group of my life-long friends. There are hundreds and hundreds of recordings here of songs I improvised or crafted, alone or with some friends, going all the way back to 1979. Sometimes I write a little story highlighting one of my favorite recordings, called the pick of the week. They're a great way to browse the music here and get an idea of what I've been up to for the past 40 years, and there are usually a few pictures. There's one 'pick of the week', selected randomly, below. Playback controls are above.

Enjoy!

This is one of my favorite old Tim & Andy Band recordings, with such a cool, jazzy chord progression. Here's a chart:

One of the two cassette decks had a slightly slower speed than the other such that the first chord went from an A major 7 down to an Ab major 7 (or so) after the two overdubbing passes.

Tim plays bass, drums, and an assortment of his mother's Tupperware, recorded in three separate takes. I play electric guitar, recorded with the bass in the first take. Recorded on March 19, 1982 in the basement of Tim's house on Mount Pleasant Road back in Ithaca, NY. From the album Mount Pleasant.

Thanks for listening!
