Young Guatemalan Musicians Coming to Visit
In 2004, Deanna and I got married. Being a fairly nerdy pair, we couldn’t think of anything more fun to do on our honeymoon than go to Guatemala, stay with a family in a homestay, and go to language immersion school for two weeks. It was a blast. We made some friends while we were […]

A little laugh for you (bloopers)
Every Monday, I send out a video of a song to my Patreon community, just to start the week off with a little bit of music. Last week, I had to work for it! Jess Fox, who helps me out with video, thought it would be fun to chop together an outtake reel, and did […]
