Just a quick update on my recording project. It is about 90% completed. Still looking for some female harmony parts. Also, in the long run hoping to find a bass player and fiddle player for Northern VA area.

Working on quite a few new recordings.

Could use a little help on a few areas: Need steel guitar on one song, dobro on another song. Need some fiddle on 3 or 4 songs but think I have that covered. Also, adding harmony, drums, and electric guitar leads to few songs but think I have all the covered, too. Might be able to trade some bass tracks for someone who could help me on steel / dobro?


I just found my old cassette tape of songs recorded by Ray Tilkens when I was in a band called Sundown in the early 80's. I was able to convert to mp3s (although quality is not as good as strictly digital) & put them up on my site here. I had so much fun in those days playing music with the late great Jack Frisbie, his son Marc, & Keith George. Here's to the good ol' days.
