Time & Truth are the two stout threads that knit together these songs.
It's either Time & the truth it tells on me, or Truth & the time it takes me to tell it.

Ten tracks here –  all are songs I have written, words and music, except for one lyric.   The exception: track 9 is my musical setting of a famous poem by Robert Frost. The poem has finally moved into the realm of public domain in 2019, so I am now free to sing it – publicly!  

              It’s about Truth, and it’s about Time! 

Herein you’ll find a salute to teachers, the romantic memory of a moonlit shore, a banjo tribute to the sound of a silver coin, and a train inside an old guitar. You’ll find dogs in heaven, scoundrels in hell, a grudge against infernal devices, an essay on Truth in the age of mendacity, a wistful Odyssean jazz ballad – and that lonesome fellow with his skeptical horse on a snowy evening.

All that, plus a Hallelujah chorus.
