Presently located at 1615 Manhattan St in the Manchester neighborhood of the Northside, the Shelter is raising money for a new furnace.

And the lawmen, they frown upon
the hungry they look down upon
making deals to legislate
lobby in back rooms
bound by blood this yoke we wear
the debt of war forced to bear
labor sets the blood a boil
with cowed indifference we must toil
The salesmen now are governors
point fingers at young mothers
tear babies from their arms
slowly raise the blade
wash their hands of any harm
Doors open at 7 pm. I’ll be opening 8-8:30. This will be a good one folks.

Here’s a playlist of my whole catalog on Spotify. Please share, it helps tremendously. Thanks!
First they came for Muslims and I did not speak out because I was not a Muslim. Then they came for the undocumented immigrants and I did not speak out because I was not an undocumented immigrant. Then they came for the LGBTQ community and I did not speak out because I wasn’t part of it. Then they came for the climate scientists and I did not speak out because I was not a climate scientist. Then they came for the press and media and I did not speak out because I was not part of the press or media. Then they came for the government employees and I did not speak out because I was not a government employee. Then they came for women’s rights and I did not speak out because I was not a woman. Then they came for me and there was no one left to stand up for me.

This song Simple was inspired by a bumper sticker I saw while sitting in Northern Virginia Fairfax County traffic one day. I wrote it years ago but it seems even more relevant now with all the electronic devices that we are plugged into.
I worked in the high tech industry until 2008 when I unplugged and was laid off during the recession. So I went to Nashville to make my debut recording and haven’t looked back. This song was recorded at my actual desk built into the wall in our den. Thanks to NPR for playing the best music. Where would radio be today without you?
Now you can listen to a few songs from my new CD “Witness” and the previous one “The Ballad of Philo Paul”. Also check out the live performance at The Rex Theater in July. Everybody have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and New Year!!
Peace and blessings,
