State Of Affairs (2016)
I wrote and produced this album during a period of my life when I was performing regularly as a one-man, looper act at jamband festivals. I wanted this album to be as close to my live sound as possible, with only a little more polish added in the studio, to be able to give my fans an offering consistent with the sound they had grown to love. I wrote, arranged, performed, and engineered every note on the album. The album was mastered by Thomas Blondet of Rhythm And Culture Music. The song “Wildflowers And Sage” from this album had mystical origins, became a fan favorite, and won an award for Song Of The Year. I still consider it to be one of my most relevant and poignant offerings.
