The Rediculously Complex Task of Selecting Cover Tunes

It’s a funny thing to be a songwriter.  Lyrics spring to mind often fully formed, or they come in dreams, of sometimes they just sing themselves — all of which is a great delight.  Words can be limiting as well, though.   I love singing, and I like to work with primal tones rather than words […]

CDBaby – songs are up!

Yay!  Several of the songs have now been posted to CDBaby ~ this means you can listen to them and/or get them on our website at http://www.psychanaut.com , our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/Psychanaut , and i-tunes, Amazon, etc.  Right now, I was able to configure the “widget” to play each entire song on the facebook […]

New Songs…

I am so excited about the  new songs that we’re writing!  With the addition of Pete and Ian, the band now has three strong back up vocalists, which is allowing us to perform the songs with the nice full harmonies that I’ve always wanted.  For those of you who liked “”Seven Wonders” and Arriving” before, […]

Upcoming Show

Well, yes, it’s been a while!  I’ve found myself rather occupied commenting upon various blogs, and writing *another blog that’s semi-anonymous… and so neglecting this one a bit.  But now I’m BACK. We are doing a benefit At Cozmic Pizza the night of January 14th, 2012.

Life is Life’s Greatest Gift

Psychanaut is coming along great! (although there is some tweaking as is always necessary) Still looking for just the right chemistry in players.  And the recordings are one by one being mixed/mastered.  The songs sound really great.  And its a great time for creativity!  New tunes are coming along.  But what I’m most pleased about […]

Life gets so busy!

OK,  I know my postings on facebook have been minimal, and the newsletter hasn’t been sent in a while, and I’ve cut down on blogging too.  This is not because I don’t love you guys.  I do!  It’s just that I’m really focusing on slowing down just a bit and spending less time online ~ […]

Where ever you go…

There you are.  I have a dear friend who’s a world traveler, yet he always calls me and says he’s bored.  It’s crazy, bored in Paris, bored in Spain.  So finally I had to mention that quote to him and we had a good laugh! Someone recently asked if I miss California and I guess […]
