Dot of America (Demo)
I raced against the clock to finish this one before 2017: a song-journey on the Westbound Twin Cities Hiawatha train between Chicago and Minneapolis, operated by the Milwaukee Road from 1935-1971. [more inside]

Felt inspired to throw together a cover of an old favorite for the May/June challenge. [more inside]
Those Aren't Poodles [Greg Nog cover]
I had the day off. I heard the previous song. I started singing it my head like this. I had to share. I am still in my jammas. I am a recalcitrant dog misidentifier, but I'm better known for considering all animals and some human babies gender-neutral.
I'm doing a song-a-week thing with someone I knew in school, and this is what I came up with. [more inside]

6 categories of word smithing, one book = bible, and a thesaurus is the brief version! Enjoy... [more inside]

Chicago or Bust (demo)
This quick demo was made on my pocket tape recorder right after I had finished writing the song, and I was really pleased with the way it sounds... like it's a recording from a long time back.
I have a bunch of song ideas that I drafted a couple of years back, and am finally getting back to fleshing them out and putting lyrics vocals to them. Only problem is, I kind of forgot where I was mentally, so I'm not quite sure of what to write. This one was one of my favorites, and suggestions for theme ideas?
This one is by one of the guys in my band, on his own. Why am I posting it? Because I consider him to be Chicago's best kept secret and I want everybody to find out how good he is. David Boddiger, ladies and gentlemen.
