Live at the Swamptown Getdown festival, May 2012
|I have been in a place
on the edge of music for decades,
it's just worked-out that way.
On an alternative road, in and out
of the music biz, I have met and
worked with some very creative,
unusual and inspiring people.
There is a lot going on outside
of the main-stream.
|I met Gram Parsons in '65, worked and wandered
with him for several years. During our time together in
the 'International Submarine Band' we strayed like
mavericks away from the rest of the herd and ignored
the warnings and advice from those who suggested
that we stop trying to sing that awful country & western
music and get in-line with the psychedelic '60s.
We didn't listen and kept-on going wrong.
|In 2009 my solo CD 'Cocktale of the Absurd', was released including tracks recorded in Waycross, Georgia with musicians I have been writing with.
A new CD 'the Dusty Pool of Pleasures' was finished in Jan., 2013. The CD features studio sessions and live performances of new material. The CD is available at gigs and downloads at http://iand.bandcamp.com/
My live shows incorporate storytelling, stand-up comedy and some of the elements of alternative country music that derive from the years I spent with Parsons.
