Welcome to my home, a place where we can share stories and songs about life, death and in between. We're just getting started, so have a look around and come back again, anytime.

for protectors of water and life
there is a darkness on the horizon
the darkness is beating the drum of fear
we hear the drum but we are not afraid
the darkness is afraid of itself
water is sweet medicine
water is life and makes us strong
we are not afraid of the darkness
we are protectors of water and life
we are light and we live

Swimming in Blackwater, a Turtle's song of swimming through oil in the Gulf of Mexico's Deepwater Horizon catastrophe, features Richard Bowden on fiddle and me singing the song I wrote with Wolfgang Pracht. By giving voice to the dying turtle swimming in the blackwater, we raise our voices in solidarity with the people standing in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, the Protectors of Water and Life.

Wolfgang and I are offering our services to produce a digital album of music contributions from recording artists to raise awareness and funds for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's Dakota Access Pipeline Fund.  Please visit Sparrows Wheel for more information.
