A new song (weird)

I've been in a real dry spell, writing wise, the last year or so. I think I have 3 new songs since the CD came out.

I can add to that now. I have been wanting to write about my experiences in Mahtowa for 2 years now.

For those of you who are new to my LJ, The Highway 61 Folks Festival is a little music festival where you can hear great original songs every year. I cannot recommend it more highly. It is mostly local folks, mostly amateurs and pretty much entirely great. I have heard some folks who are not real comfortable onstage, but I have heard very few bad songs. I have heard very few mediocre songs. And there are always a bunch of great songs every year.

Well, last year I had a strange encounter with a motel owner and have wanted to write a song about it. If all goes well (and it seems to be) it will be one of my entries into the songwriting contest this year.


  • So, what's going on this weekend?

    It's gonna be a weekend! Chicago Friday night, Champaign Saturday night. The Peoples Church of Chicago 941 W Lawrence Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60640…

  • Demicon!

    Two shows, no waiting. We stormed through both of them. The new songs are finally figuring out who they are onstage. Music Room Show Persephone…

  • So yeah, that thing

    I am on DW, same name as here. I will, as I have done for months now, post there and have it drift over here.
