Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
With Steve Fishell and David Macias

Steve Fishell, David Macias and I co-produced a little folk record called ‘Beautiful Dreamer: The Songs of Stephen Foster’. The fact that we won a GRAMMY for Best Traditional Folk Album for our project still blows me away. I tried not to cry but this photo shows the truth of the emotion of that incredible night

Leadership Music Closing Retreat


May 10, 2008
Nashville Public Library
With Steve Fishell and Steve Wozniak

My friend Steve Fishell and I were on the closing retreat committee for the Leadership Music class that graduated in May, 2008. It was our job to get a keynote speaker for the event. Little did everyone know that we had a secret weapon: Steve Wozniak, inventor of the Apple Computer. Woz and Steve go back many years and my friendship with Woz came about through Fishell and then grew when Woz joined the board of directors for American Roots Publishing. It was fun to introduce Woz to our Leadership community. He is an engaging, lively and fun speaker and I think we set the bar pretty high for future LM retreats.
