News: 7/27/12: "Kick Off Your Muddy Boots"
The new studio album is getting a little bit closer each day. We've been adding some percussion overdubs and Julie and I will be hitting background vocals on Monday the 30th. After that, it will be back to studying rough mixes, deciding if there is any further sweetening to be done and, if not, on to mix-down and mastering. We think we're going to knock a lot of folks off their feet. Stay Tuned!

News: 4/12/12: The next studio album
"Kick Off Your Muddy Boots" is coming!
I've been listening to the rough mixes of our new album, "Kick Off Your Muddy Boots," and think we're on to something really special. The hard part (vocals) is yet to come, but I believe that the results will knock a lot of folks out. The key is simple; I have an unbelievably talented band around me and their performances have elevated the songs to heights I could not have imagined. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart, to Julie Myers, Paul Deck and Nick Terramani. Stay tuned!

News: 3/1/12 Swimming To The Sun
Just released is my second album, a live effort recorded at the Mermaid Inn in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania, and titled "Swimming To The Sun." It is a thirteen song set featuring three cuts from "Pilgrim's Progress," four covers and six previously unrecorded songs set for appearance on my next studio album, "Kick Off Your Muddy Boots."
It was a kick to record this set in front of an appreciative crowd and a lot of fun to present the songs in a stripped down format of guitar and vocals. This is the way the country blues was meant to sound and I had a blast including classics like "Statesboro Blues," "Police Dog Blues" and "He's In The Jailhouse Now." For good measure, I also included one of my favorite songs from the great Moby Grape, Jerry Miller and Don Stevenson's "8:05."
Lyrics for the six new original tunes can be found on the lyrics page. Rehearsals for "KOYMB" are going great and we hope to be in the studio later this month. Stay tuned!
News: 7/14/11 Facelift for Pilgrim's Progress
Beginning in late May of this year, I went back into the studio and re-cut all of the vocal tracks for Pilgrim's Progress, then, under the expert guidance of master engineer / producer Ron DiSilvestro, we remixed and remastered the entire project. The results can be heard on the "Now Playing" page. Have a listen and please feel free to contact me with your opinions on the tunes. Personally, I think that there has been an immense improvement over the original tracks. Enjoy!

The world is getting smaller every minute.

Geoff's song shared airspace with works by John Gorka, The Waybacks and Linda Ronstadt, some pretty good company.
