Electric

Rolywholyover

CD, January 2005

Rolywholyover

I started out playing electric rock music before veering off into folk and roots music almost exclusively. I did take one brief detour back to record some of my favorite original rock songs with a highly amplified band, and this is the result. $10

Samples: Yesterday's Sunshine, Rolywholyover

Acoustic

Show Biz

CD, June 2000

Show Biz

After years of demos and EPs, this was my first full-length CD. It includes straightforward solo tracks that sound like my live shows at the time, and a few band arrangements that sound like what I was really aiming for. This is a remastered version of the original 1998 release. $12

Samples: Poor as Poi, Wilson-esque

Anti-Gravity Girl

EP, November 1998

Anti-Gravity Girl

While most of my recordings are self-produced, this EP came from an offer to help test a new recording studio. The songs are typical of what I was performing at the time, but the arrangements get a big boost from a professional engineer and backing band. $5

Hare of the Jug

CD, December 2007

Hare of the Jug

Spanning two years and over 20 musicians, this album captures the spirit of The Hump Night Thumpers, the jug band class I started at the Old Town School of Folk Music. The album includes 11 rollicking pre-war blues songs, plus one by a favorite from my high school years, Mojo Nixon. $10

Music of My Ancestors

CD, June 2000

Music of My Ancestors

A year before O Brother, Where Art Thou brought old-time music to the masses, I stumbled across the Anthology of American Folk Music and entered a time warp. If you're ready for a little history and a lot of fooling around, this one's for you. Includes the "Buckingham Fountain" remake and one other bonus track. $12

Samples: Old Black Dog, Buckingham Fountain

Kids'

A Day at Honey Creek

CD, April 1999

A Day at Honey Creek

I've always played a few songs with childlike elements, and I took that to its logical extreme with this album, a collection of original songs for children (or, at least, about children). This collaboration with Anna Belyaev was one of my biggest sellers, and got me into the lucrative elementary school circuit! $12

Samples: H.D. in Chicago, Spring Prairie Lullaby

Holiday Mornings

CD, October 2001

Holiday Mornings

Anna and I followed up A Day at Honey Creek with a collection of original holiday songs. Holiday Mornings comes on a trio of 3" CDs, for use as three individual stocking stuffers or one great gift. We wrote these songs for a wider age range than our first release and explored a much wider range of genres as well. $15

Samples: Too Many Lights, Los Reyes Magos

Early stuff

Sorry-Go-Round

EP, January 1997
