Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about urban roots music, television, and occasionally politics. 

My motto is Explore, Enjoy, and Share new Music! Enjoy!

This one is heavily influenced by Texas - I went to college at The University of North Texas in Denton and also later worked and coached at UNT later in life.

Spent a ton of time in Denton, in Dallas, and in Austin listening to bands.

With the release of the new Shearwater album coming up I thought a little Okkervil River was also an appropriate Texas band to revisit.

Last weeks playlist was a tribute of sorts to Bowie and could be found on my site and was also reproduced on I Heart Noise.
