I never heard of you until one night I looked up Elton John's "Texas Love Song" . Wow. Saw yours and played it. Then I found out our Echo knows all you're songs. My wife keeps telling me to stop playing the same old stuff but can't help it. Love you're melodies and lyrics. They tell a story. Always loved ballads. Breakfast in Hell is up there with the Edmond Fitzgerald.
Anyway, would really like to see you at the Horseshoe Lounge, but that probably won't happen any time soon. Any chance you might schedule a gig in Atlanta ?
Thanks for writing. I'm always curious to find out how people come across my music. It's always a tiny miracle of chance it seems. We usually play Eddie's Attic in Decatur or the Red Clay Theater in Duluth about once a year. Nothing on the books right now, but . . .

My brother and I will be at your show tonight in LaSalle, IL. We were hoping you might sing "Brother's Keeper." We are looking forward to the show.

Singer-songwriter Bill Campin. also owner of Café Carpe in Fort Atkinson Wisconsin, referred me to you. I'm working on an article for the biannual print quarterly edition of No Depression about Midwestern music. Specifically I am concentrating on Midwestern music venues. I hoped to get a quotable comment from you about the qualities that make Café carpe a good place for you your music in your audience.
Thanks for whatever thoughts have on this,
