Working on some new songs 

I had a lovely chat over very good coffee this morning with Peter Stone. We're going to be doing some recording together in the next few weeks.

Pete is a producer, and the singer-songwriter from 100 Mile House, my favourite folk band in Edmonton. Their song 'Better Still' is a real masterpiece. https://100milehouse.bandcamp.com/track/better-still

I have a few things in mind for our recording session, but I'm open to suggestions from you.  Is there anything you'd like me to record?
