About a year ago I started a Go Fund Me project and many of you contributed, Here is the LONG STORY of this journey. I had been helping a friend Chris (engineer) build his studio and was accumulating recording hours for my labor. About eight months ago Chris had a major heart attack and was unable to finish his studio. Then within a couple of months his father also had a heart attack and is not able to take care of himself. I have been trying help them when I can but my schedule has increase to 170+ shows a year this year. (Thank Goodness) But all the time I put into building the studio has not payed off. I did not reach my goal on the Go Fund Me project but I intend to get this CD Finished as time permits, I have already got 4 songs in the can and plan on another 4-6 to finish it out. The project started out as an all original project but this first release is a cover of a Boz Scaggs tune. I did this to help generate more interest and get air play on the local Beach Music stations/DJ's. (For those not in the southeastern US, Beach Music is an indigenous name for our Southern Soul, R&B, Motown sound). This extra exposure will help fund this CD as well, since I now have to pay for studio time to finish the last tunes.

All that said Here is the tune Runnin" Blue
