HALO (FORMERLY Nor'easter) album

As an independent artist, I'm putting the finishing touches on
a legendary record with the generosity of the best fans in the world!

   I’ve just finished recording a new album, and I have some legendary musicians who have agreed to appear on it! The album will be called Halo, and, hopefully, the release date is set for May 2024.

   I’m so thankful to announce that the following artist friends have been able to appear on Halo: Noel Paul Stookey (from Peter, Paul, and Mary), Kevin Barry (James Taylor’s and Jackson Browne’s bands), and Eric Troyer (ELO II and The Orchestra). Noel, William J, Hall, and I co-wrote a song together called “Comin' In,” Kevin is playing some mind-blowing electric lap steel on a bunch of songs, and Eric is adding some high, vocal harmonies to half of the record. It's unbelievable that these guys are available. This has been a dream of mine for many years, and the stars have literally aligned!

   I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with some legends of the music world. It actually seems a bit surreal. Furthermore, I’m happy and extremely thankful to have partnered with you, my fans, again to bring some new music into this world. I know it’s sometimes difficult to focus on music when there’s so much turmoil in the world, but that might be exactly when new music does the most good. I’m excited, and I hope you are, too. We're making a legendary record together!

   The album consists of twelve songs, which are placing me solidly in the adult alternative genre with some very radio friendly material for AAA FM radio stations. Halo has also been an opportunity for me to stretch my musical footprint a bit more. Along with my acoustic guitar and vocals, I've had the opportunity to add mellotron, electric guitar, and organ to the mix of instruments I play on the record. I even got to write a part for English horn! It's been a blast recording with a bunch of top-drawer musicians, and working very closely, once again, with my friend, recording engineer, and co-producer Jud Caswell at his Frog Hollow Studio in Topsham, Maine.

   Jud and I are currently working at the most efficient pace allowable to get this record mixed, and then it'll be sent to Nashville for mastering. I can't wait for you to hear it, and I'm hopeful that it'll have a release date sometime in May of 2024. I can't promise an exact release date, but I can promise you that you're going to LOVE Halo!
