This month: Finding new love, and real-life ghost stories!

Two new releases for October! First, one of the three remaining songs making up my Heart Chronicles collection! Humdinger is a jovial pop/rock song from Act Three of the unfolding story. At this point, the protagonist, now recovered from the collapse of his first great love affair, has met another young woman who might just turn out to be the true love that sticks around. (It’s a happy song! I dare you to not jump up and dance!)

Second, for this spooky month, a collection of first-hand ghost stories shared by people I’ve known (and one person everyone knows), titled Ghostly Encounters. The final story in this collection is the account of my own life-changing encounter with an apparition many years ago! Fasten your seatbelts!

At first I didn’t want to release this collection of tales at Halloween, because these are real first-hand stories about extraordinary experiences, some of which were deeply moving. I didn’t want to belittle them as “holiday ghost stories.” On the other hand, why not share them at this time of year? So I’ve decided to go ahead and put them out into the universe!

The Heart Chronicles uses songs to tell a chronological story about a young man’s experiences as he discovers that falling in love is awesome — but staying in love takes a lot of work.

Creating something like this has been on my mind since my earliest days as a songwriter; in fact, I performed a one-man show along these lines in New York City in my 20s. (I have no doubt that Joni Mitchell’s album Court and Spark — a masterpiece that uses brilliant, insightful songs to tell the story of a failed love affair — motivated me to attempt it.) In those days, I wasn’t in a position to record an album, so after doing my one-man show I set aside the idea. But I always knew I’d come back to it. Today, with many more songs in my repertoire about the challenges of being in a relationship, I can assemble a pretty compelling story.

Below, you’ll find the songs I’ve already released as part of this project. Only a few songs remain, and they’ll be released in the upcoming months!
