My first full CD, covering highlights from 14 years of songwriting. Recorded live in April 2009 at the now-defunct Airplay Cafe in Portland, Oregon. Remixed and remastered in 2010.
Here are the original liner notes:
It was a balmy day when Portland had just re-acquainted itself with the sun. We only ran the air conditioner during breaks, so the cafe got a little toasty. I'd been fighting a cold but my voice made a miraculous comeback when I needed it. My hands and voice stumbled a little, but it didn't matter. This show was full of the magic moments that happen in front of the right audience, as their listening becomes part of the music. In other words, exactly what I hoped to capture in a live recording.
These songs live, breathe, and change over time. Here's how they sounded one April day in Portland.
