NEW RWB ALBUM IN THE WORKS!

That's right! It's time to make a NEW RECORD! Our SEVENTH!

The title was inspired by a real place in my Hometown of Flint, MI that sat directly across from the factory where they made parts for the Cadillac DeVille. I always thought that place had SO many stories over the decades it stood and watched the life and death of the town around it. So this will be a unique blend of Blues and story telling done with my fire breathing brand of guitar-driven, left-turn swingin' grooves.
We've already released a single as a sneak preview of the music to come but we really need your help to do this the way it needs to be done.
I've offered a few ideas to help us out and I appreciate those who have done so, but if the idea of signing up and using apps or buying a T-shirt just doesn't appeal to you then how about just a simple donation to our Go Fund me page? You can give whatever you want.
 
Trust me, for every dollar we get from others I'm putting in ten of my own and I hate even asking, but in this day and age music artistry is having a harder and harder time reaching the masses and if you believe my music is good and you like my playing and Laurie's singing we really need your help to get this done the best we possibly can and get it out to the rest of the world. You'll be helping strike a blow for TALENT and SKILL and HARD WORK in music, not some lame kid rapping nastiness over a computer beat.
 
   What do you say? Will you click the link and drop a few dollars in the can? You'll get a copy of the music when its done and I'll know you're a real believer in music from the soul.
 
 
Thanks,
