Lot’s of behind the scenes including recording new tracks for my 2012 album, have kept me closer to home since end of summer, but this week is a busy one~ 2 1/2 live shows & a broadcast, Yeah!!

Each week, Charlie welcomes a singer/songwriter or band, to promote that artist’s music and feature songs recorded just for that appearance, in an intimate and acoustic setting~ becomes a podcast here~ Up Close & Acoustic
23 min excerpt of 1 hr show, incl 3 songs live solo!

This weekend we put the question up on facebook,”need help deciding which 3 songs to play Katmandu Wed 10/19” and have already gotten great responses (and a couple write-ins incl Freebird, but not, lol) Currently an overwhelming number of votes for “Just In Case”, then “Tethered”, “Salt In My Coffee” and some passionate requests for “Oh Philadelphia” & “Lull’bye”. Keep ‘em coming and we’ll play the winners Wed!

We’re recording- partake in our sonic goosebumps + comfy cozy seating!

Track artwork
All Of A Sudden BTs & El Gtr by Larry Saklad “All Of A Sudden” © (with full lyrics for my next album due 2012). … dig the cheesy organ solo and feel~ a friend describes ala Leon Russel(ish)!

~ So there you have it, every effort to get you guys a chance to hear me, whether live show, or broadcast, or podcast, but remember, it never sounds as good as LIVE (and I been practicing + some brand new stuff!)  Happy Fall!
