  1. The Bunny - Unknown EP

    At some point in the late 1990s, my cousin Dean asked me to record his metal band. To date, this is my favorite recording I have ever made.

  2. Table Top Box

    Box of snuff tins

    In the victorian era, music boxes were commonly made from old snuff boxes. There were personal sized pocket boxes that you carried around with you, and table top boxes for your parlor or coffee table.

  3. The Cruel Minuet

    An original composition inspired by Leigh Nash’s Cruel Heart (her song, not her attitude). This is totally different, though. This recording features my daughter Ella on rhythm ukulele. She is a hoss.

  4. Baltimore Oriole

    Me, all dressed up with no where to go

    Hoagy Carmichael has always been a huge favorite of mine. A legendary songwriter, and under-rated performer. I have always been a sucker for songwriters performing their own songs. Hoagy is at the top of my list.

  5. The Creekside Serenade

    A waltz I wrote in G minor, inspired by memories of driving home from band practice in Dixon and pulling over at a dark sky spot beside Putah Creek to look at the stars. We were playing Lonesome Moonlight Waltz a lot at the time.

  6. Summertime Is Past And Gone

    Me and my ukulele looking out the window

    Another bluegrass waltz, this one in honor of the fall equinox in the northern hemisphere, a lovely waltz about the end of summer and walking in the moonlight.

  7. Lonesome Moonlight Waltz

    My ukulele and me

    One of my all-time favorite Bill Monroe waltzes, this arrangement by YouTube’s ukulelezaza is what inspired me to record these country and bluegrass waltzes on the ukulele. Ukulelezaza epitomizes everything I love about this instrument. He doesn’t post enough, but his channel is very worth subscribing to.

  8. Kentucky Waltz

    My grainy ukulele

    One of the waltzes I’m working on. I did this one pretty strait with almost no dynamics. I like the idea of bringing out the structure, but I may spiff it up a bit. Bill Monroe’s vocal phrasing is really great on this tune, so I’ll probably try to emulate that.

  9. St. James Infirmary Blues

    I’d been working out ukulele arrangements of some country and bluegrass waltzes, when I stumbled upon this in a songbook my wife picked up. It derailed my waltz project for a little bit, but I like the way it came out.
