Slaid. I was just told about your songs from a friend. I live in Ontario Canada and sail on Georgian Bay. What is your connection to this area with the song "Breakfast in Hell"? I just ordered some of your music. Do you tour in Canada?
Hi John. My friend Gurf Morlix invited me to his family home in Honey Harbor a few years back. Gurf took me on a boat tour to Sandy Gray Falls and told me the story of how it got its name. I wrote the song while driving back to Texas after my visit. Long drive. Long song.
We stopped touring Canada because of the the red tape involved in crossing the border. But I see that some of the restrictions/fees have been lifted. So we hope to visit Canada in 2018.
I've followed you for many years, you provide a voice in the darkness of Alaskan winters. The spoken word is made more powerful when put to verse and you have a way with both.
I have two questions.
A) What is the joy in your day. If you could have a good day, what would be a few things in it.
I can't play any instruments anymore except that my grandchildren seem to enjoy the noise I make. I've been told many times my writings should be put to song. Could I send one or two to you for consideration. I would not want them said by anyone else.
We've been to your shows at Hill Country in DC the last few years, but just moved to Nashville this summer. So, we were excited to see that Nashville was on your itinerary this year as well. We're looking forward to the show tonight and wanted to pass along a couple of requests: Wishbones and Hard to Believe (the latter of which originally got me hooked on your music -- but have never heard it live!)
