Polar Plunge

Nothing says welcome back to the Midwest like jumping in a lake in February! I’ll be doing just that February 23rd for Special Olympics Indiana with my NUVO newsweekly team. So…if you could spare $5-$10 for this worthy cause, you would be helping a lot of grateful kids. I’ll even throw in a couple free new song downloads at the freebie link below:) You can donate securely at Polar Plunge

2012 was a crazy year of transition. In the last six months…we sold our house in Los Angeles, moved cross country to Indianapolis, started new jobs, and just bought a 143 year old historic fixer house in Indy! Deep breaths…

Musically, I’m slowly writing new song/sounds and making plans to do some analog tape recording for vinyl with old friends this summer. Those old friends would be the mighty Horse Buyers (Matt Winegardner, Eric Straumanis, John Svec). And it looks like we will be playing the Iowa Arts Festival June 8th and maybe some other gigs around the recording sessions.

And mucho thanks to Bob Mair at Black Toast Music in Los Angeles for continuing to help find homes for my songs in TV/FILM. My four year relationship with Bob/Black Toast has really helped keep my sonic creative juices flowing as my touring life has slowed down. New house has a man cave for recording…so I’ll keep plugging away as long as I have a tune in my head. Here’s a year end round up of all the shows that used my songs in 2012.

Blue Bloods, Justified, The Young and the Restless, Cold Case, True Blood DVD, Party of Five DVD, Jerseylicious, Electric Barbarellas, Man vs. Food, Eco Trip, When I Was 17, Secret Millionaire III, Flipping Out, Make It Or Break It, Table for 12, Cash and Treasures, Life’s Funniest Moments, One Love, Pretty Wild, Glory Daze, My Big Redneck Wedding, Amazing Wedding Cakes, Tastiest Places To Chow Down, Sex and the USA.

And finally, you may have noticed I just changed the website photo for the first time in ten years! Boss lady couldn’t handle the side-burns photo anymore (sorry Sandy Dyas) so she took a snap shot yesterday that is current and should last another decade:)

Here’s to hopefully a bit more peace, calm and tranquility in 2013. Breathe in breathe out move on…

Miss her every day

She’s kryptonite to my heart

Say hello once a year

Then quickly fall apart…
