New Album: Heartache & Sin

My new tunes...
About 8 months ago the great David Roe Rorick showed up at one of our shows in LA, and during the set break he said, "You gotta come down to Nashville to my studio and we'll make a record on you."
I’ve known Dave for over a decade since he was in Dwight Yoakam’s band with Mitch Marine and Keith Gattis. They all played on my first record Wet Dog Man. Dave also played with Johnny Cash for about 14 years or so.
Anyway, I’ve never been to Nashville before and I was pretty excited for this opportunity of a lifetime.
The plan was he was gonna put a band together for me and I would send him demos and he’d make charts and we’d hunker down in his studio for a few days and pound these puppies out.
Long story short, I went to Nashville on November 15th and left on November 22nd with a full 12 song mixed album on a hard drive in my suitcase.
Special thanks to the players on these particular tunes...
