  My Rural Radio Artist of The Month
My January show at the World Cafe Live provided the oppertunity to meet Mike Males. He is the founder of MyRuralRadio.com, a site that promotes independent music to fans looking for “the best songs they haven’t heard yet.” Thanks for your support Mike it’s an honor to be Rural Radio’s April Artist of the Month.


The Cube number is north of seventy thousand miles, and people tell me that is big mileage for a car thats only 15 months old. Loaded with guitars and kick drums the Cube has been a dependable and trustworthy road warrior. It will be back on the road in June! Songwriting is the focus of my creative life. The two songs linked here are coming to you in their raw and early stages. I hope you like them. Someday you will hear them from the stage, but today here they are… Live from my living room.

I am in love with my songwriting group! Every week someone throws out a catch phrase and we have to write at least a verse and a chorus around it. The phrase for this past week was “swam the seven seas.” 

Lyrics

Done With Numb

Written and Performed Live 3/15/14

I swam the seven seas

all in one eve in my dream

waters were calm in the breeze

sharks they were all on my team

I had the hair of a queen

down to my knees and citrine 

slowly i awake 

to make 

more with my mistakes

I’ve been running some

now I’m done with numb

finest of fabrics I wore

up on the 100th floor

gold framed the windows and door

fire filled the room with a roar

I recently had the pleasure of working with a group of aspiring songwriters at Lagrange Elementary School. Last night they performed original compositions at The Oldham County Performing Arts Center and did a phenomenal job. It’s unbelievable how insightful, intelligent and intuitive these young ladies and gentlemen can be, specifically when we provide a safe space for them to freely express themselves. For me, this experience has been a solid reminder that nourishing creativity in our youth is an essential factor for any society that wishes to move forward in a healthy fashion. Thank you Lagrange Elementary… You inspire me!

Stale

"Sometimes it blows my mind that there are actually still people who have to stand outside in this weather and hold up signs asking for money. It could be that they brought it on themselves. It could be that they are a product of a sick society where their needs were left un-nurtured. Maybe both. I wrote a poem about it this morning. Writing always makes me feel better."
