Good evening to you all!
Thanks so much to all of you who watched the video about the making of my new record, "Lost in Kentucky". Thank you for the kind comments as well. I'm grateful to those of you who donated some of your hard earned money to help us get this done. I promise you it will go to good use. You surprise me every time!

We are in the mixing stages of the recording now, listening to rough mixes and headed toward getting the music done as well as the art work for this CD.
The first two to comment below my video on YouTube and winners of tickets to the Music Box Supper Club show on Dec. 21st are:

Lastly, I want to tell you about a movie, I was reminded of recently. It's a documentary called "Happy". I love this film because is reminds me to be grateful and that money, once you have enough to feel comfortable, i.e. you are not worried about where your next meal is coming from or where you are going to sleep etc., does not equal happiness. The director, Roko Belic, takes you on a journey around the world in search of what it is that makes people truly happy. I watched it 2 years ago and I still think of it often. It's worth watching and I think a great reminder with the holidays upon us. Here's a link to "Happy" on Netflix.
I was also reminded that every day, if I name 5 things that I'm grateful for, I always end up with more than 5 things and my life is better: things seem to go more smoothly, I seem to enjoy the present more and I'm more tuned into how I might help someone. My good friends Nomad and Mare (great musicians), speak their 5 things before bed each night. Thank you Mare and Nomad for sharing this practice! I encourage you all to give if a whirl.
Once again I thank you for your continued interest in my music. I love what I do and I love that you love it.
Enjoy the rest of your week and this coming weekend.
I like you just the way you are
