Back when I was getting started we would have killed for the technology that is available today to memorialize a performance, capture a mood or document a show. From 4K images on cell phones to multi camera productions we have an array of options when it comes to sharing music with others. Here you will find some of those moments caught in the amber of video and ranging from the early days of my return to music back in '08 (as captured by none other than Gary Hall) through more sophisticated reels of original and cover songs.
Enjoy the music and the mood. Visit often as I continue to add bits and pieces to the mosaic of the music I love.
This is a clip reel from a performance at the Winchester Music Hall the night I opened for Marley's Ghost. It's a good representation of what my shows are like.
My first decent song was written in the early '70s. Many of the tunes from that era are featured on my CD. Since then I've added to the collection as I work toward the release of my next opus. The collection of videos here showcase the old and the new and highlight how the music has matured and become more universal.
A listener once said that my music seemed to "come from the heart." That is exactly where the songs captured in these videos originate.
Cover tunes - those written by others - are an important part of any performance. They serve to give an audience a reference point for the kind of music they are likely to hear at my shows while providing a context against which the original tunes are judged. I try to find songs that I believe should be shared because they are well crafted or amusing or particularly interesting. A few popular numbers might find their way onto a set list (I really like doing Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl) but the hits have never held much fascination for me. There are too many great songs that don't often get heard.
This particular collection is nothing more than a random sample of some the songs I like best of the billions and billions of songs that are the fabric of our lives
