Fade Into You

As part of my duet series, I got together with the wonderful singer-songwriter-harpist, Cheyenne Dane to sing Mazzy Star's hit song from the 90's. Cheyenne is an intense and passionate performer, and we lucked out that her friend Ellen Niemeier was available to accompany us on violin. You can find more from Cheyenne at her Facebook page and Ellen at her webpage.

Ain't No Sunshine

Maya Bennett and I recorded another duet, this time of the classic Bill Withers tune. Maya had guitar duties on this one, and it showcases her unique sense of time. Of course, her passionate vocals still reign supreme. If you want more, check out her web page at www.mayabennettmusic.com

Brand New Key

Here's another duet I did covering this 70's folk-pop classic by Melanie. My partner is Shanna in a Dress (nee Shanna Hoar). She's an amazingly talented performer, but also one of the cleverest songwriters you'll ever hear. Check out more of her stuff on Facebook or her YouTube page.

If you enjoy Maya's unique and powerful vocals, I can tell you that her songwriting is just as passionate. Check out her website at www.mayabennettmusic.com. Enjoy!

Happy International Women's Day!

Ani DiFranco is one of my musical heroes. Her lyrics are deft and her guitar playing unique. She's also written more than her fair share of feminist anthems. My musical pick for International Women's Day is "32 Flavors", one of Ani's sweeter, more melodic tunes, but still retaining her lyrical bite.

The great thing about International Women's Day is that it not only celebrates women, but it highlights their diversity. Women come in so many varieties, with inner lives of wonderful complexity. It's a shame that the world still needs to be reminded of that. 32 flavors and then some...

Comic Book Stuff...

So, I used to be a huge comic book buff (I suppose I still am, but I can't quite afford the habit anymore). Check out this episode of the Rocky Mountain Geek Tank to hear me wax rhapsodically about them.

P.S. - I wrote the theme song for the show...
