, 1994 Ariel Records

This is a band that I went on tour with in 1992. I joined after their first CD on Gemini Records was recorded, but I was included on the band photo on the back of the CD. I also took the photo of the sword on the cover of their debut CD. During the tour I co-wrote this song with guitarist Scott Brown while we were in New Orleans, more specifically Bourbon Street. This song made it onto the bands second CD, "A Place In The Sun", but unfortunately I had left the band before they went in the studio so I didn't get to play on it. Here is the song.

THE LETTER

Dawna wrote this next song and I've always thought it was brilliant. The hi-light for me was that the two of us went into the world renown Studio B in Nashville where Elvis Presley recorded countless hits) and recorded an acoustic version of the song. I played my 12-string Epiphone Acoustic Guitar along with her in the studio.
