“My first album since finding my Higher Power. I choose to call him God. I used to call him Glenn, but that pissed him off. When Mike Varney asked me to put together a blues project, I thought it would be a challenge, something that I love. This CD deals with my personal demons. It is a healing album, written and recorded in three weeks. It’s raw, and it’s real.”

Favorite song – Life Of Misery

Favorite ballad – So Much Love To Give
