Disjointed Folk Music and Stories


At coffee, I run into everyone. Our town only has one coffee shop, so it’s easy to find everyone there. I ran into a couple of musicians that I’ve jammed with, and I dig their tunes! Well, like me, they signed up for Distrokid – and like me, they have the eternal musician’s struggle: Record, listen, hear the mistakes, re-record, listen, hear something “lacking”, re-re-record, listen – and so on.          The thing that a lot of us...

Who Is The Storyteller?


Posted on Mar 19, 2016

This is a two-birds, one-stone kind of post… Bird 1.) How did I come to be known as “The Page” Bird 2.) Why did I not promote the hell out of the album as soon as it was available?!             I am often asked how I got the name “The Page” – and how all this got started. There’s a long story behind all that, but I’ll give you the shorter (read: less long) version.           I’ve been writing songs and...
