LINEAGE: Nine new compositions and stories

My partner, Lisa, said to me one day: “you’re always telling stories about your family, you should write songs about them.”  Such an innocent statement but it was all I needed to begin composing.  The song titles are family members born in the early 20th Century.  I spent my childhood with each of them and they all made an impression on me. I hope all of these songs speak to you and reconnect you with your Lineage.

On Monday August 1, 2022, along with Seth Hedquist, guitar, Scot Sutherland, bass, and Russ Tomlinson, drums, I debuted Lineage at the weekly series: Monday Night Live hosted by xBk Live in Des Moines, Iowa.  You can watch the performance here or below in the Lineage Video Channel.  I deliberately made the decision to perform the songs in front of a live audience before recording them.  Songs take on a new shape once they get in front of an audience and I wanted to work the ideas out before capturing them in a recording.
