New album! Ramblin' Deano And His Enablers! 

Midwest meets Austin meets Toronto! I've collaborated on this new album with great friends and great musicians Tamineh Gueramy on fiddle (who's also in Ice Cold Singles, btw) and Jeff MacNeil on mandolin. More frightening and funny tales about why and how we can't just get along. The dystopian future is now, but we're gonna pick and grin about it on the front porch!

New album with Ice Cold Singles! 

I've known and played music with the great players who joined me to make this album for many years now. I'm thrilled to finally have 10 fully-realized tracks to offer up! Sadly, economics prevent any touring with this seven piece outfit. So here's your chance to get a little taste of Austin in your living room.

About the project... 

Inspired by the the folk revival of the 1950s and 1960s, I wanted to write a set of acoustic songs that stuck to very simple chord progressions and melodies but that did not overtly reflect any specific genre of Americana. I wanted the lyrics to be straightforward- creative but without much attempt at poetry. The subjects are mostly political but I hope that they're injected with enough humor to avoid sounding preachy. 

The recording was done on a desktop computer with one cheap mic. Most of the music that inspired these songs was recorded with the equivalent technology of the time. Maybe, if this project has some minor success, I'll record the next one with a great engineer, using a $10,000 microphone! 

Lastly, the business model is to give the recording away but hope, if you like it, you'll throw in whatever tip you can afford. The idea being to bypass the business side of the music business altogether- to be a singer not a salesman.

New 7" vinyl and downloads from TV White, my Austin-based, noisy pop band 

Formed while I lived in Austin with my pals (and Austin's hardest working rhythm section) Hunter Darby and Steve McCarthy. The idea behind TV White was to have an outlet for my not-so-rootsy songwriting. I was also shooting for a recording that sounds less produced- like a band playing in a room, which I think our engineer Allan Gill achieved nicely. We left the mistakes in and kept the needles in the red. Click here to download or order the 7" and I'll rush yours to the post office today!
