A Song For You is the first track on my new record Echoes. In my opinion, this is one of the all time great songs. Written by the fabulous Leon Russell. I hope you enjoy it!
Making music is a mysterious process. You can’t say, just follow these steps and it will be great. But it sure helps to have wonderful songs. I’m grateful to all of the amazing songwriters whose work is featured on my new record ECHOES. When you hear these fantastic songs, I hope you will feel the […]

Over dusty parlor velvet stares a memory Rockers creak and the knitting needles weave At the quiet house where Christmas never comes Like a lull-a-bye whose rhymes have all been sung Madeline’s Dad was a Shelbyville coal miner He worked all day to provide for his wife and child He used to pass out the […]
The mourning dove woke me from a dream Of a younger summer She sang her song as my dreamland faded away And for the rest of the day I couldn’t shake this feeling Like I was watching myself walk away Chorus: Walking on the railroad tracks Walk across the trestle Walking on the railroad […]
Sitting Down in Russell Square Where the sun has come to brighten this June day And the flowers sway Purple, Red, and Yellow In gardens kept with care Down in Russell Square And those who were just passing through Find themselves upon the benches too As toddlers smile and stagger laughing In the soft and […]
