CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!
I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Strangest Things features
the songwriting husband-wife team, David and Anne Ducharme-Jones. It was
produced and recorded at The Track Shack in South Austin.
Highlighted tracks to listen to and play include:
Red Roses (country rock)
Wherever You Go (poignant singer-songwriter)
David and Anne added a new
facet to their successful relationship with co-writing
these 13 songs. Though Anne has sung on David's solo albums and helped with
David's songs this is the first time they have completely collaborated on
all aspects. The thing they love the most about the writing partnership is
the eclectic nature of the songs they bring to life. These songs are
snippets of their own history, mostly love stories, including upbeat
roots-rocker "Red Roses" and "Two Satellites",
alongside moody and ambient "Of the Water", whimsical, jazzy
"Wherever You Go", and funky "The Girl Is Gone."
Anne steps into lead vocals on rootsey-rockers "I Don't Need
You," "Crazy Heart," and "I Was Wrong."
Long known for his stellar guitar performances, Dave's prior releases
(2009), and A LOUD
Guitar (2012) on which Annie joined him on background vocals
and at live performances.
