One Day TRM 005 - CD
2012 release of 14 original songs most of which have been written since 2009. The songs vary quite a bit stylistically. Some are very basic guitar and vocal offerings. Some are arranged for a string band sound with bass, fiddle, and mandolin. A couple rock out with electric guitar, electric bass, and drums. It's a folky, old time, rockabilly, bluesy, bonanza. You can listen to all of the songs in their entirety on the Music section of this website.
