“Set Me On Free”

About two years ago, right after I left Leon Russell’s band, I started working with a friend and lyricist, Walter Barker. I was co-writing and producing some songs for him. Over the months, a few songs turned into a few more, then more and more.. after a while the idea came up, and we decided that it would make a great next album for me…
It’s a weird feeling, because I wasn’t thinking about producing an album for myself… so it’s a mash-up of styles and attitudes but I think they all ended up sounding like me.

I’ll be posting a sneak peek track pretty soon.
