*100% of the tips for streaming/downloading benefit the crew of The Bridge in Upland, Indiana*

On February 28, 2020, I performed at The Bridge in Upland, Indiana. It was my fourth time back and the night of my album release. I wanted to capture some of the songs for a purpose I hadn't yet determined. That independent cafe has shown my family such generous hospitality this past year, and they feel like my artistic anchor point as I keep branching further north into the state.

Skip ahead a month, and their fifth anniversary show I would have played is cancelled. Nearly everything is cancelled, and we're all hunkering down for the common good to slow the spread of a pandemic that was barely on our radar just a month ago. 100% of the tips we receive from YOU for streaming/downloading this album are going straight to the hardworking crew at The Bridge. They are a real gem, and I want to join in with the other artists and loyal regulars who are rallying to keep them standing while they face this sudden and swift downturn in business.

So here are some live takes from that special night, with two demos of new songs at the end. This is the only place to hear them...until album #2, which I hope to release at The Bridge, of course. ;-)

Be well, and let's keep The Bridge standing. Follow them on Instagram and Facebook to learn more.
