This CD is long over due. I\'ve owed it to myself and my family for many years. Some of the songs were written a long time ago, and some are a few months old. As a young man I traveled the country and the Northern Hemisphere, tasting life and diverse cultures. Many of my experiences were wonderful, and some were extremely difficult. For the past 8 years I've been living in Saint Michaels, MD. I\'ve found myself surrounded by an amazing sailing town full of great musicians and music. Landing here now seems serendipitous. Here I've found an incredible studio and producer, a great local guitar maker who keep my instruments in top working condition, musicians in hiding, love, and friendship. All of these pieces and people just fell into my life, and I began to record Hope Town. Now it is done, and I hope you like it as much as I do.
