Inspired by a new romance, 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 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. I returned to Eugene in February of 2015, and Meg and I renewed our connection. In July of that year, my father passed away. The final song on the CD is a tribute to my him--Dayton Patrick--and a reflection on our temporary journey on earth.
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.
