WE RECEIVED NEWS OCTOBER 30th, 2009 of the passing of our friend, and the friend of all "music lovers"NORTON BUFFALO, "known both locally and nationally as an "amazing harmonica player, and a kind and loveable man. He will be missed.
Our sympathy to his wife "Lisa".
LET ME INTRODUCE Y0U TO THE AWESOME MUSICIANS WHO.,...... not only gave their talent and time to my new album ... but also...,.. added their own unique style which makes this "CD" just a little "different" from the normal country & country blues SOUNDS. It's hard to believe you could find so many talented people in one small Northern California Town.... but we did!!
FIRST AND FOREMOST: SCOTT SHAW.....
Owner & Engineer Soundhaus recording Studio.
Not only did he mix, arrange, & play "awesome" guitar",.........his input & insight was invaluable!
Scott played lead guitar on "De ja vu, "The man
you left Behind", "Mama, won't you hold my Hand",
"Old Fashion Girl", and "Cold day in hell".
THANK YOU SCOTT....I appreciate you so much.
JD Richardson, The only "country" musician in
the group! Never missed a beat! JD has played with such artists as: Marcy Brothers, CharlieDaniels, Kris Kristofferson,etc., etc.
JIM PEPPLER, Bass Player Jim always wanted to "get it right"..and he did!!
Thanks for your dilligence.
I think he is "feeling" the country!
My "Main Man" DAVE DARBY.........
Rhythm guitar. Lead guitar on "Drag Racing 101".
I couldn't have done this without Dave. He has been there from the beginning.
After playing my guitar and singing him some of my songs , I asked him if he would be interested in helping me put together my "CD" of original tunes. (I think he could see that I needed a good guitar player).He has been so dependable and a constant source of "encouragement"!
TRENT SMITH....A talent "far beyond his years".
Piano, synth, Violin.
Trent is not only an "outstanding musician", he is also an acomplished song writer and recording artist.Check him out at www.trentsmithmusic.com
BOB LITTEL...a talented musician who has played on numerous albums for many different artists which included Folk music, Blues, Country, etc.
His "Harmonica" playing added the finishing touches to the song "You're Gone"...giving that little "attitude adjustment" that it needed!
STEVE VALINE, Steele Player...
Ready and willing!
When Steve arrived at the studio, he knew exactly what "licks" to play to add the emotional feel to the story, "Looking for Lory".
A little different atmosphere needed
for the slow songs...........
'BIG MO" stopped by the studio one night and laid down some back up vocal tracks for me. I am DEFINITELY one of his biggest fans..so was a real treat for me.

IT JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER.... .through Scotts'connections...we were able to get an amazing guitar player named VOLKER STRIFLER. to play guitar on "Chasin' the Dream". If you follow the "blues" scene, you will have heard of him. He is known not only here in the States , but Internationally as well. How lucky can a "lady" get?

"CHASIN' THE DREAM"
ANOTHER sad and heartbreaking loss to the "music scene" was the passing of
sweet "Amy Grayson" , June 2011.
I count it a "blessing" and a "privilege" to
have her voice etched on my song "Looking for Lory" .
Gone........way to soon
