Chop Wood, Haul Water - To Commit to and Thrive during the process of any pursuit.

Coming out of Covid, I needed something real, something we all did together in a flash of light, or darkness or whatever the hell it was that we did. Seven of us all in one room with no separation, no headphones and no click tracks. Just old friends and new old friends playing music, responding to the molecules banging around each other in the room. I had produced a record called “Modern Love” by Dennis Ellsworth more or less in this fashion a few months earlier and was craving the energy and spark of that session. The world needs more real, less smoke and mirrors. No tricks, just human instinct and beauty and mistakes here. A lot of letting go.

I’m very pleased with this work, I hope you can find something of yourself in it too.
Still chopping wood and hauling water
