Jordan Has No Virtue








This is some new video from the 21st Saloon open mic (pril's jam) in Omaha, Nebraska. There's some awesome musicians there who can keep up even on songs they don't know. This particular song is kind of a special one, it's also fairly new. Poke around the YouTube some- there's a lot of stuff up there, live recordings from that scene, some of them are covers or previously unreleased material (like this).


The creative process has been going kind of slow. There was a period of about 4 months after Nebraska (where I recorded "Noise From The Basement") in which I wrote nothing and focused on doing production work for other people. One of those projects was released, the other was squashed.


Then I went to Brazil. I wrote 3 songs. One of them has been played out a couple times.One has never been played.


Basically though, I'm sitting on an album's worth at least of material that goes back 1 1/2 years, has a lot of different subject matter, and is really strong.


I'm going to try and record it this year. I was going to do a GoFundMe to try and get recording gear to do it, but I think I might just buy it, or possibly even go into an actual studio. Not sure yet how to do this, only that I need to. Expect some of it to possibly release sooner too. Anyway I wanted to update this for the few people who may still check this site that yes, I'm still out here, and yes, I'm still doing music.

New album From Tennessee Night Train! (my debut as producer)

So, to put up one of the things I've been working on for the last few months- the debut album from some friends of mine. They hired me to help them produce an album, and, well, they've got one!


I'm not going to write too much about it, but go listen to it here, and click through to the bandcamp site if you want to read more about it. Enjoy!



Noise From The Basement (2015)

In the summer of 2015, I recorded a series of videos. Live recordings done in the basement of the house we were renting in Blair, Nebraska. It was basically a handycam on a tripod, no special mics or anything, and a clip light.


Some of the songs (Willow Jane, Richer than Me, Miranda) were previously unreleased, while some (Stranger Things, the Lepers and My Lord, I Lose Control) were alternate arrangements involving harmonica or different tunings.


It turned out pretty well. Well enough for me to let it go and put it out there.


If you wish to download it, you can get it here. Enjoy the music!



Songs From Nowhere (Vol. 5: The Ballad of the Golden Eagle) is out!

The album is now formally released in its entirety. It is now on sale at Bandcamp, click the link above to purchase or download at no cost. One of the best things I've done. I hope you enjoy it.
