I am delighted and honored to be named one of three winners in the 2019 Vic Heyman singer-songwriter competition at the South Florida Folk Festival, http://www.southfloridafolkfest.net/SFFF/-S-SCompetition-2019Winners.html . There was a ton of great music there and I made a lot of new friends and had a great time. Competition winners get to play as regular performers the next year and I'm already looking forward to going back to participate in such a wonderful music festival again in 2020.
My new CD is back from CD Baby. It's a collection of the humorous songs I wrote over the last few years. I'm delighted with how it turned out. Kayla Williams, Mike Palecki and Danny Goddard all provided stellar accompaniment on different songs and Pete Winter did his usual ace job of mixing and mastering. Please check it out when you have a chance but use discretion if you have children around, Why Buy the Cow?
I recorded this last November and am grateful that Mike Palecki came and added a harmonica track for it. I was inspired to write it after reading a novel by Jefferson Bass entitled "The Boneyard." It's about the Dozier School for Boys in Marianna and the White House Boys. http://www.jeffersonbass.com/ http://www.officialwhitehouseboys.org/
I posted a new recording today, Black Bear. This is another one with Kayla Williams doing another amazing job. The lyrics come very much from the FL DEP website about Black Bears, their habits and how they interact with humans. Please enjoy and feel free to download for free if you like.
Years ago I had an older friend that immigrated from Yugoslavia. His favorite quote was "too soon old, too late smart." I always liked that quote so much I decided to write a song around it. This is for Janos. Too Soon Old
