The first several tunes on here are songs I've written and recorded at home since 2006, when I purchased a Yahama keyboard and Vintage G guitar. These are more in the pop/rock genre, with one, Might Be Me, a song I wrote as a teen in the 1970s, and recorded in 2007 with friend Chris Kitchen doing the guitar work in Ashland, KY. The other songs I've posted on here are what I like to call my original "Folkgrass" tunes. A couple were written back in 1989-90 when I was living in NW Missouri and later recorded with my niece Amy Watkins and friend James Moore in Nashville in 2000, the rest I wrote from 2002-06 here in Cincinnati. You'll hear friend Webster Struthers playing mandolin and singing harmonies on a few tunes we recorded long distance between Cincinnati and Selma, NC, and a few others where I play and sing alone or do my own harmonies. On here as well is Webster's bluegrass band, The Misty Mountain Boys, doing a cover of my original song, "Seven Lonely Years", recorded in 2002.
