'Surgery' project update 

To everyone who has supported the 'Surgery' project: 

It's hard to put into words how much I appreciate your support.  Friends showing up for me from all points of the past and present...it reminds me of how blessed I have been during my time on the road and during this difficult, or shall I say different, time of staying put.  I am a little more than halfway through the 8 week 'recovery' time for the operation and continue to focus on healing.

Recording 'Surgery' gave me a break from being a sick…

'SURGERY': new music and photography project 

Hello friends!


Well folks, here it is, the brand-new music and photography project, SURGERY.

Eleven folk tunes and standards,

recorded last month at home in Montopolis, Texas during a rainstorm.  


As you may know, I recently had major surgery for a chronic medical condition.

The album was conceived in the weeks before surgery as a way to transcend fears

and the stress of chronic illness through music...and…

the place in space that makes for a new year.

Well folks, I'm scheduled for surgery on December 30th.

I won't get into the gory details, but it's major surgery

with all the bills and thrills that go along with that.

So to prepare spiritually and to raise funds for this non-voluntary endeavor,

I have decided to make it a celebration of sorts,

with an album called SURGERY!

I've been recording at home.

And will polish off this acute collection of songs

and make it available for your listening enjoyment right quick!

Whatever Happened To Amy Annelle? 

Whatever happened to Amy Annelle?

Courser of the highways and byways

wandering the country with her music family in a big old van.  

Songs coming to you over the airwaves, f

rom the streetcorner, campfire or stage.  


It's not that I have gone. or given up.  Far from it. 

I just got real sick.  

There you have it.   

Been a couple years now.

No sure fire cures.

Trailing through a different wilderness.

Looking for clues, and crime scenes.


I will mend.  This is my intention.

But this mending takes time…
