Like most of my work, it’s just me and acoustic guitar with occasional second guitars added. The songs might be considered a bit “country-ish”. I can’t help it as I’ve been in a bit of a Hank Williams and Willie Nelson swoon for the last couple of years. Not trying to imitate them mind you, that would be ridiculous…but I am trying to write from the place that they touch in my heart and mind and a little sonic similarity is inevitable. In any case, this album is the result of a somewhat tumultuous year or two in my marriage, which I’ve tweaked, re-imagined, and creatively exaggerated into 15 songs…along with two bonus tracks.
*A heads up for next month: Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016: “Break-up Songs”
The only rules of this Hack Circle:
1. You’ve got to use your feet to keep the sack in the air and off the ground. No hands! (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
2. If you miss or otherwise screw up, you can’t say, “I’m Sorry.” (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
3. No serving to yourself.
4. No hotdogging. Meaning this is not about how many tricks you can do before the sack hits the ground, and it’s not about working obsessively on tricks. Tricks are fine but in general, we want to keep the hack going as a friendly group and keep everyone involved.
See you at the bandshell, rain or shine. The shell provides shelter from the rain and once a circle gets going, you’ll be plenty warm.
