091814= I will be singing tomorrow at Echo Donut Lounge (friday 9/19 7pm) This place is the bees knees...the best addition to downtown Washougal in hundreds of years. FRESH donuts, great coffee, books, records, music gear and friendly people. Sarah& Bret have done a standup job in making this place a reality. Please come and support!

091114= Confluence Winery is where you can find me singing this week...Friday at 6. I am very excited to bring the sounds of late summer to this venue for the 1st time. Will be rocking with Lincolns Beard on Saturday at Caps N Taps Camas . FUN!

082614=A bunch of 'end of summer shows' this week. Mosey on over to the EVENTS page to see where I will be, and then come visit ...please bring ice.  ALSO delighted to be starting a new studio project with Eenie Meenie recording artist Blue Eyed Son.


080514= Heisen House Vineyards   a 'diamond in the rough' of a winery is dangerously close to losing their operating permit without costly changes before Sept 5. 'tis a rare occasion that Sarah and I perform together these days and each year we look forward to playing the twilight hours at this magical venue in the 100 year old barn. Dinner will be available from Mill Creek Pub and Heisen House is kid friendly with lots of open land to explore. Please join us there this Friday Aug. 8th from 6-9 and come prepared to take away a case of their exquisite wine! {The free download of 'Bombs' to the right is a great example of Sarah & Aram together} >>>>

070614= back fro Plum Island vacation and ready to play a slew of Lincoln's Beard shows. Check out their site for dates.


061714= Wrapping up a beautifully crafted CD by veteran songwriter Rich DeVore. I had the pleasure of working with Rich in the 'Southern Cross' trio for a few years and have enjoyed working on his tunes. The record will be titled 'Wounded' and sends a touching tribute to all those that have been affected by war. It also touches on the joys and satisfaction of looking to the 'Twilight Years'. Rich crafted these songs around his 'drop D' 12 string style along with his expert standup bass skills. His wife Robin sings wonderful harmonies and I provide ear candy with percussion, electric guitars and keys.

061414= wrapping up in the studio (just in time for daddy daycare summer) is the upcoming release from songwriitng veteran Randy Cate. The album will be called 'Different kind of Same' and was  tracked at Ripcord studios by Scott Scott & then handed over to me to mix. (I LOVE MIXING!) Randy has penned songs for artists as varied as Ted Nugent to Dionne Warwick!. 

061114= Just finished up a new Luke and Laura. Contrary to rumor, this is NOT My and Sarah's POP project. wink wink


052714= Very Kind Review of new Lincoln's Beard CD:
So I've been listening to Honorary Sibling on a loop in my car for several days now with no sign of it getting old. Big kudos to you guys for putting out a hell of a good album. To be honest, I wasn't expecting a record with this much depth, maturity and sophistication. The songs themselves are catchy and strong, but I think its the song craft that really grabs me. Theres an attention to detail that is so obvious. Its easy to tell that each song was really thought out in terms of arrangement and production. I can't say enough good things about the studio work here. There are so many little details; change ups in guitar tone, banjo or keyboard fills, tasteful harmonies, etc that I don't hear on major label artists albums, let alone an indy band. And what really makes the thing shine is that none of it is overdone. Each piece of the puzzle sits so nicely with all the others, and that's no easy trick. 
Suffice to say, you knocked it out of the park, and all four of you ought to be really proud of this album. -David Redden
