The following body of music represents 25 years of recordings, nearly 50 albums here. It spans all sorts of genres and genre bending concepts. I am unearthing live recordings all the time - so it grows. My band from the mid two thousand teens, Lovers Without Borders is putting out a compilation of tapes and 7"s. And of course the 4-track projects that seem to flow endlessly. Check out "If There Is A Guard Above" and "Little, Pink Maggot & Friends" to hear the latest home recordings. I didn't do it consciously, but I think Little, Pink Maggot EP has a real Aksak Maboul vibe.

I'm asking fans for support to pitch in as little as $5 a year if that suits you. This is towards my goal of stability as a musician, to be able to support my modest lifestyle that I could focus on art. I still live paycheck to paycheck like many artists. And those paychecks come from odd jobs like slate roofing or hodcarrier-ing, retail, handy-man. To work towards a mode of support which feels fair to me, is to have this music - 50 albums or so and growing all of the time - accessible for a very small amount, but that many hands would make light work. That's like 1.5 cents per day, or just under 42 cents per month if you give 5 bucks. A few thousand people doing this will make a big difference.

Thanks for your support, if you think this music is worth more to you then $5 a year, then by all means that would be real kind. You may download, stream through bandcamp, or however you listen to your music.

Keep healthy with vitamins y'all!

Thank you for your support!

Thanks so much for the opportunity to share all of these moments in studios and with live audiences that really all mean a great deal to me. Each one of these albums was a journey, spiritually of creativity and transformation. The artists I have worked with and who appear on these recordings each have universes of music of their own. I am so grateful to be caught in this particular web of musicians in the Pacific Northwest and all over the world.

Of course I don't expect anyone to make it through all of this stuff, but do take a chance once in a while to explore some new territory.

Thanks for helping float my boat. I hope you enjoy.
