Bluebird Canyon

My latest album is Bluebird Canyon. These songs evolved over the last few years, starting around the time that I bought my mahogany guitar (in the picture above). The songs and guitar fit together so well that I decided to make them a collection.
Keywords: Acoustic guitar, instrumental, drums, percussion, and violin.

You can buy individual tracks or a whole album from these major retailers:
Apple Music

Most of the songs on the album have videos. You can see them on YouTube

"Keep close to nature’s heart...and break clear away once in a while,
Climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."
- John Muir


Sequoia is an instrumental acoustic guitar album driven by alternate tunings like DADGAD, drop-C, and G-dulcimer. It was inspired by the giant Sequoia trees that can grow to over 200 feet tall and live for 2,000 years. OK, I admit that I'm a tree hugger, especially those old trees. From their frame of reference, though, my interaction is not even a blip on their consciousness. But still, I can feel their energy and how they are connected to the earth.
I have been remixing some of the Sequoia tracks. Here is a sample:
Needs No Introduction
Here's an oldy: Old Man's Dream

"The venerable aboriginal sequoia, ancient of other days, keeps you at a distance, taking no notice of you, speaking only to the winds, thinking only of the sky.
- John Muir 1901


Back in the day, we used to hang out at a house on Fremont street. The house eventually became known as "Fremont". It was a gathering place where things would happen spontaneously. Many different people were always coming around so the stereo was always playing something different. That musical melting pot affected the music we wrote and played later.

I met Richie Burgess right before we started jamming at Fremont. Richie and I quickly realized that we had both taken lessons from Herman Roloff, so we immediately played several songs that Herman had arranged for our bands when we were younger. It was an instant foundation for whatever we played after that.
This album is officially out of print, but I still have a few copies - contact me at
