Artist Bio

Influences:   Hazel Dickens, Ola Belle Reed, Carter Family, Gillian Welch, Grateful Dead, Roger Miller, death and destruction, life and renewal.

Usually I draw from the well of oldtime/bluegrass/country, aka folk music. I love story songs. I have lately been so crippled by my critic, and am joining FAWM this year to push myself to write every day and let go let go of needing to write always a 'good' song, or at least one I am happy with, and therefore not writing any song at all. I live on Vancouver Island, but my heart still resides in the Yukon where I spent my formative young adult years, twenty of them. I still miss it.

    Nice collection of songs that surely will silence that critic. I'm only a few postal codes south of you, I'm sure I will run into soon enough, and indeed may have already at Nimblefingers!

    @natalieedelson Fascinating you should mention your Orion song was channeling Liz Phair. She was co-writing songs with that dude but abandoned the project - intriguing.
