I coach voice, songwriting, performance. Contact me. I have some open spots

Good Good Man - the CD - streaming all platforms, even get it from me…



1) make soup out of the front three things in your fridge. Plus bullion base, of course

2) taste #1 and laugh as you either have lunch or pour it down the sink

3) pick one of Prince’s raunchiest songs and imagine Pavarotti or Andreas Bocelli singing it

4) find some colored pencils or crayons and draw pretty colored swirls and boxes on today’s junk mail and repost it

5) go to various aggravating social media posts and answer them with nothing more than a happy face

6) call an old person

7) watch parts of a favorite movie and add your own comment track, recording it with your cellphone

8) stick your head in the attic or the basement crawlspace or some never used place in your house and shout “I haven’t forgotten you!”

9) bring a book to the laundry room and read a little while the washer does their thing

10) make up a rhythmic little song to the banging of the clothes dryer

11) bundle up triple warm and read in a chair outside for a bit

12) give names to the serving utensils in the kitchen

13) tell a loved one using something in #12 “Ummm you’re about to scoop the soup I made in #1 with Tremaine…”

14) turn off the news for 4 hours

15) put your headphones on backwards for a slightly different listening

16) add one extra thing than what’s on your list of things to do. Or do one less. Proudly.
