WHAT'S JANGLIN'

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long Overdue, the power-pop debut album by Librarians With Hickeys (me, Mike Crooker, Andrew Wilco and Rob Crossley) is OUT NOW on Big Stir Records!

 

A "best-of" from my four track years (1986-2006), called

How To Make Friends By Telephone is now available for

free download here.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also have a brand new single release by The Ghost Lilies (my ambient/experimental/instrumental alter-ego) called You're Soaking In ItIt's a three minute nod to Vini Reilly, soaked in reverb and stereo delay.  I sound nothing like him, of course, but he's one of my influences...  You can download it for free here.  I plan on having a new album ready this fall.

Weeping Barista, the jazz-folk project of Jim Weiser and myself, have finally released our second album.  Closing Time contains some of the best songs Jim has ever written and it's available for free download at the Weeping Barista Bandcamp page.  We hope you dig it!

DETAILS

Akron, OH based one-man band, making home-made bubblegum art pop just like mom used to make since 1986.
