Wishing Well

I will be playing some of my songs at The Well Hotel and Taproom in Trinidad, CO on Friday, March 1. If you're in the area or feel like taking a road trip, come check it out.

I'm excited to be a part of this lineup and look forward to visiting a part of Colorado that I have not yet seen. Thanks to everyone involved in putting this show together, as well as all who support live music.

Keep on Rockin' in the New Year

I just played a set at the Buzzard's Roost. If you were there, cool. Thank you. I hope you got something out of my music, even if it was just tapping your toes. I hope that you shared in the fun that I had. 

My setlist was something like this:

Still Life
Gravel Roads
Dandelion Wine (If Only...)
The Fool
Go It Alone
Life Preserver
Baby Blue
Something to Break
Screen Memories

This marks the one-year anniversary of the first time that I played live music (also at the Buzzard's Roost) in Lamar, Colorado, which was the first that I had performed for an audience of more than three people since early 2020. Thanks to Jay and Karen and the rest of the crew for hosting me and the other musicians who performed. Every town needs at least one venue for stuff like this. I am glad to have found this one.  

Happy new year.

Piano Songs

Here are a couple of songs that I recorded the other day in my living room.
The first one, Holiday, comes from my 2021 album Petrichor:


And the other is a new song called Time Machine, to be included on my forthcoming album, a work-in-progress:

Thanks for listening.

Record Numbers

Looking at website stats again, I see that September 2023 has been my busiest month to date on both this blog and my Zach-of-All-Trades blog. That makes me smile. The former has received over 6500 hits so far, and the latter is at over 2700. While this may not seem like much to some, it totally amazes me, especially since I haven't been very good about adding any new content lately. In any case, thank you for reading my stuff and for checking out my music. You are, above all else, the reason that I do it... whoever you are.

Although I have chosen not to monetize these blogs in any way, knowing that there are people reading my work and listening to my music makes it all seem worthwhile. That said, if you would like to financially support my various creative endeavors, for now, the best way to do so would be to buy my songs wherever you listen. Whereas streaming pays a fraction of a cent per play, purchasing the songs or albums for download adds up a lot faster... and since I write, perform and produce it all myself, more of the proceeds go directly to me, which in turn allows me to keep doing what I'm doing. 

To that end, I'm currently trying to record another album, but it seems that my eleven-year-old laptop is not really up to the challenge anymore. It has gotten very slow. As such, I intend for any revenue generated through song and album sales to be put toward replacing it so that I can keep recording, producing album number seven and beyond. Every little bit helps. And if you can't afford to buy my songs, that's fine, too. I'm still happy that you're listening to and reading my work. I encourage you to share it and add my music to your playlists, too, as this helps it to find an audience.  

Thank you, dear listener and reader. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Around the World

Every once in a while, I check my stats to see where in the world people are listening to my music. Lately, it seems that my songs have been very popular in Singapore. 
I don't know how exactly people stumble upon my music, but I'm glad that you did. To all of my listeners in that part of the world: Terima kasih! 

Wherever in the world you happen to be, thank you for checking out my music and my blog(s). You rock.
