Anywhere the Wind Blows

Imagine a breeze from the mountains of West Virginia with the sweet sound of Dobro and fiddle, combined with vocals that are simmered in dance floor romance, and you have this record of original material blending country with soul.


Follow the detour sign with an aficionado of fine wine and food as she takes you for a ride in “I Like the Way She Flies”.


 “One Step at a Time” tells the sorrow of slowly leaving somebody’s memory behind while holding someone new.


 “Ghost Town”, where the puddles in the streets don’t reflect very much when the effects of the declining coal mining industry causes the departure of the young that can’t hold on and where old people stay where they’ve lived all their lives living on faith and belief.


I’m blessed to have talented friends play on this recording.  Some of them have passed on to another place and time, two of whom were virtuoso musicians that I must give special recognition to:  Mike Auldridge and Danny Gatton.  If you’re unfamiliar, Mike was a founding member of The Seldom Scene.  The New York Times called Mike “a guitarist who became one of the most distinctive Dobro players in the history of country…”  In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine named Danny the 63rd “…best and most influential guitarist(s) in rock.  …Gatton was…a hero to fellow guitarists.  He could pluck easygoing, banjo-like country rambles or grind out power chords or create wonderfully melodic jazz excursions that revealed just a sliver of his massive technique.”  I owe them, and all the players, a great many thanks.
