On February 1st, a couple more reviews came out, one in Portland Talent Magazine, my hometown. and also one in Las Vegas Talent Magazine, where I live. That was pretty cool. Starting to get some press! My first CD, "Better Be Home Soon", was just released onto 250 websites, including I-Tunes, E Music, Rhapsody, and Napster. We've been getting some great reviews, and airplay on several country music stations. I've been on "The Mark and Natalie Show", twice, on 95.5 Clearchannels KWNR New Country Radio here in Las Vegas. Doing some promotion in some key areas...and getting that CD placed for sale in some retail locations. We're promoting a few songs to Country radio, and plan to land a song on the National Records charts...more than a few candidates off this first CD.
I've teamed up again with Producer, Bill McIllwain, from High Country Recording and Mastering, to start recording a few new songs for a future CD. Also, with not only trying to land a song on The National Record charts, we're going to focus on placing a song in a Movie, Television Show, or Commercial. I've had a song, "Nothin But Your Lovin' Will Do", featured in a couple of television shows. An episode of Northern Exposure, and also Cold Case.TUNEFIND
We have access to 1000's of songs, great studio musicians, and a state of the art recording studio. I recorded several of my songs there for my CD, "Better Be Home Soon", and was impressed at the quality, and the big radio sound, that they were able to achieve. The studio is just north of Las Vegas, and if you too would like to record there...it's definately worth the drive.

I listened to your songs on your website listed below and the songs are absolutely fabulous! Especially 3 Wooden Crosses. I love that song and you are probably the only person besides Randy Travis who can sing that song. It's kind of like the song "City of New Orleans." I haven't heard anybody sing that song better than Arlo Guthrie. So my hats off to you for 3 Wooden Crosses. I think you are very talented. Regards, Marmie
Per our phone conversation, please send me a CD of your 'Better Be Home Soon' album which includes my favorite song, 'Nothin But Your Lovin Will Do'. As I mentioned on the phone, I heard the song on an episode of Northern Exposure called Midnight Madness. Loved your voice and wanted to hear more.
