December 14, 2017 - My 26th solo album "Dropical Storm Spike" is released today! This is a tribute album to my cat Spike who passed away on July 21, 2017.

July 21, 2017 - My beautiful, wonderful, sweet baby Spike flew away on his eternal journey early this morning. He was my entire world for over 15 years. We lived alone together in my recording studio without any other pets or people since 2002. I loved him with every ounce of my being and every part of my life involved him. He was by my side for every song I've ever written. He will always be with me for everything that I do from now on. You are the King of the Universe Spike! And you are running the show now, buddy. Thank you for everything! You taught me so much and you helped me to be a better person. Your daddy will always love you!

June 25, 2017 - My 25th solo album "Drop For Thought" is released today! I made this album to help raise money for my cat Spike's medical bills. He is having heart and kidney problems which require a lot of hospital visits and medicine. Spike and I are posing together on the front cover. All sales from this album go directly to help him. And I also have a donation page for anyone who wants to donate any amount to help here: Donations For Spike. (NOTE: Spike passed away on July 21, 2017. But I will leave this donation page open for anyone who wants to donate as I'm still paying off the medical bills.)

May 23, 2017 - Recording sessions have wrapped for my new solo album "Drop For Thought"! All 10 songs are recorded and mixed. Now the audio is being mastered at Sage Audio in Nashville, Tennessee. Release date is June 25th!

February 20, 2017 - All of the songs for my 25th solo album "Drop For Thought" have been written and recording sessions have begun. Release date will be announced soon!

January 1, 2017 - This year I will release my 25th solo album titled "Drop For Thought".

NEW SOLO ALBUM - December 14, 2017!

DROPICAL STORM SPIKE is my 26th solo album of all original songs and is the most personal album I've ever recorded.
This album is a tribute to my beloved cat of 15 years, Spike who passed away on July 21, 2017. All of these songs were written as part of a batch of about 30 in total during the last few weeks of his life. We had a routine where I would give him his heart medicine and then we would have a songwriting session. The only exception to this is the opening song "To Last A Lifetime" which I wrote as Spike's tribute song about a month after he passed. Spike was with me from January 2, 2002 until July 21, 2017. The picture on the cover is an accurate depiction of how I have started every morning since he passed. I go outside and try to make a universal/spiritual connection to Spike. It's a very personal time for us.
I performed all instruments and vocals in my recording studio, The Droperating Room.
