If you've been to one of my shows chances are you've heard me talk about my big brother Don. One of my best memories of childhood was making home movies with him. 20+ years later and we're back at it with the help of our friend Joseph Martens. Please visit our video page or the youtube link below and check out "Livin' in the Heartland." We hope you enjoy it!

Over the next couple months I'll be releasing some recordings from the "Livin' in the Heartland" album that unfortunately had to be cut from the record. I'm still very pleased with these tunes, just didn't think they fit with the other songs. The first one, "Everybody's Talkin' is available for free download at the top of our "music" page right now! Check it out:
