Story

Sam and I took advantage of a break that Loren Barrigar had in January of 2013.  Mark Mazengarb, Loren's guitar duo partner was home in New Zealand for a month or so, so we got him in to Subcat Studios for one session.  We ended up recording a couple of songs that I'd always wanted to sing and have someone who knew their way around the fretboard play.  Loren easily learned these songs on the fly and expertly followed my free form tempo and phrasing.  Sam engineered and mixed these quickly and when we listened to them again, we just liked the live feel of the tracks, so here is the first one for your sonic pleasure.
