Ogden's recently released CD titled No Better Place is a feel-good album of contemporary acoustic folk songs that represent his musical homecoming. Singing in a soothing voice, Ogden pays homage to the natural beauty of the South Shore. In his 1-4-3 (Lighthouse song) the gentle sound of penny whistles in the background ties the song in with Scituate's status as the Irish Riviera. The album's title track, No Better Place, is peppered with symbols of the New England landscape and lifestyle, with mentions of cobblestone streets and picket fences, L.L. Bean clothing and Norman Rockwell paintings. Ogden calls the album "my homesick audio photo album of New England." Ben Wisch, who has also worked with artists like Davd Wilcox, Cheryl Wheeler, Kathy Mattea, and Patty Larkin, among others, produced the album.
