I am excited to say that we are finally approaching the release point for this album. It has been a long, exciting journey. I have met and become friends with many talented musicians all up and down the East Coast in this process. From the inspiring guitar playing of my good friend Lynn Mace, to the recording expertise of industry veteran Roger Caban, The River and Me ( this is a change of album name from the original selection of Down This Dirt Road ) is sure to please every kind of listener. Many thanks go out to the multi-talented Danny Ray Snyder, Scott Michaels and Zach Redner for their incredible contributions to my new album. Excited doesn't begin to express how I really feel about The River and Me, and the title track will show that from the very first note. Stay tuned as I get closer to providing actual release dates.
