02/22/2017 - A year later and I still haven't gotten any better at keeping this page (or the site) up to date.  I guess the biggest news musically is that I've gotten deeply into playing some instruments from Godin Guitar.  Most of my playing these days is on a pair of 5th Avenue archtops (a Kingpin II and a Composer) with a Montreal Premiere on its way to me next week.

I've been busy recording and have finally overcome a mess of technical gremlins.  I really like the recorded sounds I'm getting again and I hope there will be a new album soon.

And in non-musical news, we recently got back from a fabulous trip to Puerto Vallarta.  Mexico is simply magical and we're looking forward to getting back there soon.q
02/07/2016 - More apologies for not keeping up this page (apparently I'm not the blogging type).  We've moved again ... this time to beautiful Nanaimo on Vancouver Island.   For the first itme in two years, I have good, clean electrical power and I'm now finally hard at work on a new album.  Look for videos and release info very soon.
06/09/13 - We're finally getting settled in the new apartment in Vancouver.  I'm ready to start teaching and hopefully I'll be playing out soon.  More news to come soon.
5/20/13 - Sorry I haven't kept up with this page.  It's been a busy, busy time.  The big news is that we're moving this week!  We're on our way from Portland to Vancouver BC.  We will be unreachable for a few days, but check back after May 23 for an update.
9/24/12 - Bare Handed is now available at, both as CD's and as download.  iTunes and are coming soon.  Click on the button to have a look at the page on the CdBaby site.
09/24/12 - I'm in the process of setting up as a separate website from  As I focus more and more on playing and teaching, it doesn't seem to make as much sense to have it all together with a a business building guitars as it used to.
