Intro to the story of the album:
I’d like people to have a recording of these songs. I have written them over the past few years and people who have come to the concerts have heard them in various incarnations. Some have been modified, added to or had the name changed. I think they are ready now and I’m planning for them to be well-recorded in a studio and to be put together in album form.
People have been so supportive of my music up to now and I am truly grateful. I hope to raise some of the money for the project though this Fund it campaign.
Possible track listing:
1. Sounds like something John might play
2. A brother to hear me out
3. Cut our teeth
4. Say the words again
5. Little girl of the sun
6. Crazy babe
7. She packed her bags in secret
8. I am not asleep
9. Hey come on now be real

Thanks and dedications:
Some truly talented people are involved in the project and have already generously given their time in planning and rehearsing the material. My good friends and professional musicians have charted and helped arrange some of the new songs. I am fortunate that people believe so strongly in the project giving it the momentum to happen.
