The Demo Series

New Release

I’ve written a lot of songs. I’ve recorded a few. And released even fewer. There’s a myriad of reasons why a song doesn’t get released: It’s not good enough, the timing’s wrong, it’s not right for the band, or you just can’t recreate the magic in that original record.

“The Demo Series” is a collection of all my songs that never got past the demo stage – most never re-recorded because of the last reason. Although not perfect, they captured something special that I can’t recreate.

Over then next few weeks and months, I’ll be releasing many of my favorite songs. “Welcome to Ohio” is the first in this series. I wrote this whimsical tune about my home state over 20 years ago, but find the socio-economic reflections are still pretty relevant.
