released July 20, 2005

This is my first - a fingerstyle solo acoustic album with minimal accompaniment - recorded in 1991 with a limited release on cassette of all mediums! A Direct-to-Dat recording with no overdubs or editing, this record features unplugged versions of May It Begin, One Witness, Ice House and Appalachia. As I was nearing the end of a recovery from an injury in 2004, I needed something musical to do and decided to release this on CD... something I'd been itching to do ever since cds took over the world. This is a good one for acoustic guitar lovers.Produced by Ray Montford
