Welcome to the EP that's been about 10 years in the making! I hope you enjoy these songs and they bring you some laughter and warmth during the holiday season, no matter how/what you celebrate. There are SO many people to thank... my wife and kids who ALWAYS support and encourage me and the music I write and perform. Todd Kreuzburg, my trusted friend and greatest teacher when it comes to all things music. Without him none of my songs would ever be out there in the world. Thanks Todd for your generosity, patience,
experience, and friendship. J. Kreuzburg, thanks for letting me borrow your hubby for so many gigs throughout the years! P.J. Thomas, thanks for always backing me up with spot-on harmonies and for being such a good friend and supporter all these years. Thanks to all the uber-talented Annapolis musicians and artists who continually inspire me and put me in awe. Thanks to all the friends and fans who regularly attend my gigs and follow me online: Fran, John, Nina, Ted, Rachale, Brian, Helen, Bob, Jamie, Mike, Eli... the list goes on -you know who you are! Thanks to AMFM, WRNR, WTMD, Jason and Tiffany @ Annapolis Shirt Co., everyone @ Stan & Joe's, Charlie, Megan, and Deb @ Riverbay, Kevin Shook, Bryan Ewald, Andy Harden, Ken Crawn, Mike Kirby, Terry Whitehead, Brian Bolly, Brian Goddard, Joe Ellis, Hurricane Kevin, Brandt Dunn, ASCAP and
Crucial Music. I could go on and on and on, but time and space is limited. Please just know that I appreciate each kind word, helping hand, and round of applause that I receive. I'm lucky to be able to make music in this magical place surrounded by so many incredibly gifted and generous folks. THANK YOU ALL!
