I've been pretty low-key for about 3 years, while leaving Chicago and planting some roots right on the border of Orange and LA counties. While waiting the past year to have something to "blog" or "post" that doesn't somehow sound pretentious to me, I realize that it's a lost cause -- so here I am making an effort to put something out there. I just released a new album of original material that feels pretty damn good and I'm in the process of forming a band that I'm comfortable leading out here in these parts. Please check out a song or two -- and stay tuned for more ramblings... Peace. Jr.
