Hello and Welcome Back to my recently rescued Website. Its still under reconstruction after a bad hack.

I’ve stayed home most of 2019 to work on some recording projects, some art projects, some textile projects and cleaning out my musical closet. I have released or rereleased a few titles this year and that activity will continue thru the rest of the year.

I’m excited to join the members of LA Takedown in a super group playing TJO songs from the last 20 years on a short tour of the Southwest this December…

I invite you to keep up with me at the Instagram i use for fun and to make more timely announcements.

Thanks for your continued support and interest and please enjoy the recordings at places that support working artists like BANDCAMP and BIGCARTEL. If you can’t do that for some reason, all the music is available at the regular online locations….and at surviving independent record stores.

Be Well and Love the people, even if they don’t look like you.
