Hi folks! I am an independent musician and songwriter. Been writing and playing for the past 20 years. I hope you enjoy these songs. I love stripped down acoustic folk and blues music. That is mainly what I am going for with my own tunes. Poetry set to music and the rhythm of this wild and crazy universe around us. Along the way I hope to make people think and maybe smile a little.

Best wishes...

Hit 'Em Where It Hurts

I just listened to your song "Lioness"-I had never heard it before and was totally blown away. It is beautifully written and performed. I want to hear it over and over again.


All is well with you I hope. I have been doing open mics with my garage band and with the acoustic duo/trio-it's been a lot of fun.

JP,

I've been away from here for a while too as evidenced by the fact that I just saw your message on my page. I am still playing with two different groups though one has slowed down over the summer. Have been doing some acoustic open mics both with one or two others and by myself-it's been fun.

I look forward to hearing your new songs and how you've redone some old ones. Your music keeps coming up on my I-POD by the way. I am actually on my way out now but will be back to listen as soon as I can.

Hope all is well with you and your family.

Jeff

Hi J P!

Mad River is convincing-fine vocal and emotionally spot on!! I love it!

Yep we have had over 7000 quakes since February-my hometown is munted

JP,

Just stopped by to say hi and see how everything is with you. We have survived winter in the northeast and if the rain ever stops we might actually have a spring!!!!

I've been playing with my garage band and also connected with two other people to do some acoustic stuff. We played a couple open mics and hopefully will continue to do that. I even snuck in a couple originals at one of them. It's been fun. Doing some writing-put one or two on my page in the recent past but I;m actually spending more time playing than writing right now.

What's with you? Are you doing much writing/playing??? Hope all is well with you and your family.

Jeff

Exactly as you put it-an IAC grassroots concert and get together is what is needed !!

I am not so interested in a "Competition" as Dave and Co seem to be promoting but I will go anyway, if enough of my friends were there.
So far Duane Flock is the only definite who has contacted me
-Some of the regulars are hurting over Larree being barred
I would love to meet you and Eric, Paul and Mark-hell it would be hootand Anne my wife is keen!! Sam would be a bonus too!!
