Inspired by romance, relationship and the road. In 2014, I was preparing for a six-month national tour called AS THE CROW FLIES. Just before leaving—and while on the tour--I he created several songs that reflect the emotions and magic of a developing relationship. On the road, my writing was inspired by the struggle of distance from my partner, my solitude and my thoughts of home, family and friends. In 2015, soon after my return to Eugene, my father passed away. The final song is a tribute to my dad, Dayton Patrick. You can buy and download songs--or the entire CD from this page. If you want a physical copy, please email me a RiffleBand@aol.com, or pick one up at one of my shows.
