The song "Kindness of Strangers" was written the day after the terrible events in Las Vegas Oct 1 2017. I was sick at heart and had to deal with how I was feeling in a song.

I have been selected for the first round Grammy Award ballot of the 2017 Contemporary Blues Album for my recording "Live at Mt. Baker R&B Festival." This year there were over 22,000 Grammy submissions! Thanks to Lloyd and Steve at TrueToneAudio and my greasy guys Dave Chobot and Martin Blonski for providing the glue that makes sure we come out in one piece! It was a great gig and I hope you'll have a listen! The recording is available on iTunes.
