about

This is the live recording from the first set of my CD "Pre-Release" Show at SPACE on 12-4-17.
The set featured some of my very talented friends and mentors performing one of the songs that I had written along with the unbelievably talented musicians from the CD “So Happy!”.

I can’t tell you how gratifying it was for me to sit in the audience and hear these people perform my songs! It was without a doubt the best part of the show for me! Everyone performed songs that I thought were absolutely perfect for them and they did them about 1000 times better than I could ever do them!

As far as the quality of recording goes, there were some “issues” which I will not get into, but what you are hearing is the best we could do with the feeds that we got. Overall, it really captures the live feel of the show.

This night was really a magical night for me and I am very grateful for everyone that performed and everyone who came that night!

Track Name: Beginning To Believe
There is nothing worse than feeling
Like you've been wasting all your time
I'm having a hard time believing
That I am not wasting mine

I have these dreams that I hold onto
There are some chances I have to take
There is a world that I belong to
I have some plans that I should make

ooh I'm done wondering
I’m through just waiting for things to change
You've been telling me who you think I could be
I am beginning to believe

I've had 7 years of bad luck
for reasons I can't quite explain
I can still see my reflection
Though it does not look the same

Time is moving by so quickly
The pictures fading in the frames
I remember when I saw you
And I could not look away

ooh I'm done wondering
I’m through just waiting for things to change
You've been telling me who you think I could be
I am beginning to believe

I am beginning to believe
I am beginning to believe
Track Name: You Can Count On Me (feat. Kelly Donlea)
If you ever need a helping hand
When your life just seems to be too hard
You can always trust that I will be there
I'll pick up all the pieces of your heart
If love ever shatters it apart
I will be the light there in the dark

I know how sad it feels to be alone
I know just what it's like to be afraid
When the world just seems to make no sense
I will always come to your defense
We are one for all and all for one
And I will be the one that you can lean on

You can always count on me
You can always count on me
Just like the stars at night
Up in the sky shining bright
You can always count on me

You know that I will always be your friend
Even if the others have all gone
No matter where you are or what you've done
When you call that I will always run
To stand there by your side and hold your hand
You can believe that I will be there

You can always count on me
You can always count on me
Just like the stars at night
Up in the sky shining bright
You can always count on me
(whoa, o, o, o, o)

Just like tide comes in
Just like the river flows
Just like the seasons go
Just like the milky way
And just like a sunny day
Just like the deep blue sea
And just like gravity
Just like New Orleans Rain
And just like John Coltrane
Just like the Rolling Stones
and just like Booker T
(yeah yeah)

You can always count on me
(whoa, o, o, o, o)
You can always count on me
You can always count on me
Track Name: Everything Don't Mean Anything (feat. Billy Nixon and Dennis Caravello)
I've got the snake skin boots
I've got the pin stripe suit
I've got cash in the bank and I've got gas in the
tank

I drive this clean new car
I've got this shiny guitar
You might think I have everything that a man could want

People say I'm the best
Better than all the rest
But everything don't mean anything if I ain't got
you

Everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you
Everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you
Everything don't mean anything
Everything don't mean anything
Everything don't mean anything
If I ain't got you

I eat the finest steak
I get my whiskey by the case
I've got a house on the hill and a swimming pool

I've looked the devil in the eye
And I'm not afraid to die
But as long as I'm alive, I need you by my side

Aww Honey, I think you're the best
Better than all the rest
And everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you

Everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you
Everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you
Everything don't mean anything
Everything don't mean anything
Everything don't mean anything
If I ain't got you
Track Name: Jenny and Robin Bienemann - Sing A Happy Song (feat. Jenny and Robin Bienemann)
If you find yourself feeling blue
And you need something to get you through
Smile and sing a happy song

It may seem like a silly thing to do
But take a minute and try this won't you
Smile and sing a happy song

Here we go..
La, La, La, La, La La
You feel better now I know you do

You should listen I'm telling you
It works for me and it will work for you too
if you, smile and sing a happy song
smile and sing a happy song

La, La, La, La, La La
You feel better now I know you do

Sing too loud or sing it out of tune
Stand on one foot or stand on two
Just smile and sing a happy song
smile and sing a happy song
smile and sing a happy song
Track Name: Ain't No Cure (feat. Brad Cole)
It's underneath my skin
Flowing in my blood
No matter how much I get, can't seem to get enough

It's making me sweat
I can't catch my breath
I've got no reason to believe I will get over this

There ain't no cure for this love
There ain't no cure for this love

My body is aching
My knees are shaking
And the pounding of my heart feels like the earth quaking
When she walks into the room
She's all my eyes can see
And when her whisper leaves her lips it burrows deep inside of me

Now I've seen good love walk out my door
too many times before
That's never what we're looking for
But here we go again
Red Roses and serenades
It's not something we can vaccinate

There ain't no cure for this love
There ain't no cure for this love
Track Name: It's Alright (feat. Emily White)
It's come undone
It's fallen out
Your beating heart
Is broken

You feel the wind
Against your skin
You can't explain
This predicament

There are no rules
Where you are now
You've sacrificed the
Sacred cow

But it's alright
It's ok
But it's alright
It's ok
You're gonna get another chance at love someday
Don't be hard on yourself
You're gonna meet somebody else
It's alright, it's ok

It is all
A puzzle now
Just angry words
All around

You said hello
She said goodbye
You walk along
The boulevard

I see it in your eyes
You are in disguise
Wish you weren't at all
Who you are

But it's alright
It's ok
But it's alright
It's ok
You're gonna get another chance
At love someday
Don't be hard on yourself
You're gonna meet somebody else
It's alright, it's ok
Track Name: The Lucky Ones (feat. Steve Dawson)
It sure doesn't seem like 40 years
It's so damn good to have you here
I hope that life's been good to you
Yeah it wasn't easy, I know that's true

We all went our separate ways
Running from those memories
I never talked about it much
We all said we'd keep in touch

I guess it takes a long, long time
to finally put it all behind
We were kids when we went in
Not really sure where to begin

Let's talk about love
Let's talk about fear
Let's talk about the people we hold dear
Let's talk about anything
But winning isn't everything

Maybe we were wrong or
Maybe we were right
Maybe we were itching for a fight
Maybe we're the lonely ones tonight
But I know we're the lucky ones

Lucky that we're still here so that I can call you my friend
Lucky we can say the things that really matter in the end
Lucky we can laugh out loud at our own expense
When I saw their names all carved into that wall
I realized we're the lucky ones
I know we're the lucky ones

What can I tell about how I've done?
I own this house, we raised two sons
Sharon passed a few years back
She would have liked you, I'm sure of that

My memory is all worn down
But somehow the nightmares stick around
I still remember that song we sang
Just to break the boredom in DaNang

We'd be cowards to pretend
We were not frightened of the end
So here's a toast to those we lost
Don't know what we got for what it cost

Let's talk about love
Let's talk about fear
Let's talk about the people we hold dear
Maybe we're the lonely ones tonight
but I think we're the lucky ones
I know we're the lucky ones
We are the lucky ones
I know we are the lucky ones
Track Name: The Moon Fell From The Sky (feat. Robinlee Garber)
Tonight the moon fell from the sky
Splashed into the salty sea
I can see it in your eyes
I can see you're done with me

Tonight the moon fell from the sky
the darkness covers me like oil
I don't need the reasons why
we have no time left now to spoil

And the stars still shine
And my broken heart
Still beats in time

I'll say goodbye my love
Say goodbye
Goodbye my love
Say goodbye

Tonight the moon fell from the sky
The tides will cease to rise and fall
Your heart no longer carries mine
I can't do anything at all

And the stars still shine
And my broken heart
Still beats in time

Tonight the moon fell from the sky
Tonight the moon fell from the sky
Tonight the moon fell from the sky

And the stars still shine
And my broken heart
Still beats in time
Track Name: Waiting For You (feat. Paige Hargove)
Don't say that
Don't be so hard on yourself
Lets look at the facts
What could you have done
Any differently

Don't look back
What's done is done
It don't matter now
Just relax
And feel the sun
warm on your skin

Don't be in such a hurry
Don't waste your life with worry

I had a dream
you had a gold tiara on
A movie scene
You were the star attraction

A beauty queen
You looked like Miss America
It felt so real
and you seemed so happy there

Listen to what I'm saying
The world is out there
Waiting for you
Waiting for You
Waiting for You
For you

You are a star
A light that shines
On all you see

A galaxy
Of grace and hope
And possibility

Don't listen to what they're saying
Your future is bright and it's waiting for you

Listen, your future is bright and it's
It's waiting for you
It's waiting for you
It's waiting for you
You
It's waiting for you
It's waiting for you
It's waiting for you
You
