The 13 track album, 'Angry Wine' consists of songs that I wrote or co-wrote over a 15 year period and a few tracks that have special meaning. The 3 covers selected for the album are either songs I've performed for many years or songs that are special to me.
The album ranges from pure country tunes to 80's rock inspired tracks. You'll certainly hear the many influences that I've had come through musically. I have been inspired by a vast range of music and styles but a few stand out, including Conway Twitty, Ronnie Milsap, Guster, Stevie Nicks, Marty Stuart, Waylon Jennings, The Eagles, Gavin DeGraw, Garth Brooks, Mark Collie, Cher, Marc Cohn and more.
I recorded the project in multiple stages over about a 4 year period. With Charlotte based Executive Producer, Jeff Ross, this album has taken many twists and turns. We started in Dripping Springs, TX at the Hudson House of Music in 2013, working with my good friends Chad & Natasha Hudson. From there work continued in Nashville and Charlotte. John Constable, in Nashville, did final production and engineering on the entire project to bring it all together. This guys rocks (he also played live with me in Shelby, NC in 2017.)
I'm so excited to share this record with the world. So many of my close friends had a hand in it's creation, whether it was in the form of inspiration for a song, or joining me for vocals (Steve Mogck, Cindy Merry, Bryan Lelek, Natasha Hudson) or playing piano or other instruments (Traci Snowe, David Singleton, Mike Spears, Chad Hudson, Matt Bavar)...this project has been a real labor of love and friendship.
