For 14 years I've fronted the much respected Cincinnati, Ohio country-rock outfit Len's Lounge. Prior to that I was an itinerant folk singer hitting coffeehouses, punk rock clubs and town squares across the Midwest and up and down the east coast. With hard work and no luck I earned the tag line "the most hated man in folk music" and was justly characterized as foul mouthed, hard playing, incorrigible and generally uncompromising. In 1988 I released a solo cassette tape, 'Hard Folk', took it down to South by Southwest, was roundly ignored, except by Guy Clark who said "Fuck you", and here we are 20 years later on the brink of my second solo effort. Suffice to say, I've mellowed a bit over the last two decades - have a great family, tend to an organic garden and written a couple hundred songs, most of which suck. But here's some of the good shit - a little bit a folk, a little bit a country and a little bit a soul, songs from living and learning and traveling and dying.
