When I was 7, three things happened. First, Dad threw out our TV and read stories to us at night. I can still remember watching his hazel eyes move, bit by bit, across the page. The second was from my crazy Aunt Hazel. Every year she’d pull up in her Caddy, smoking like a dockworker and handing out fives. One year, she got rid of her old player piano. And I learned old-timey stuff from the 20s that I'd never heard before, singing at the top of my lungs. Then Dad got a beat-up snowmobile and he'd take me for rides chasing deer in his overcoat. Never did catch one. Anyway -- I write stories in songs, stories from my Dad, ones that take you to another place on a cold night, and make you sing along. That ain’t a typical bio; I probably should be talking about recording with Bob Babbitt and all the places I’ve played. But you’ve heard all that before, haven’t you?
