Happy September! 25 years ago this month my album Blanket was released, a collection of songs about family in one way or another (and yes, that's me on the cover with my mom and sister Amy). I'm happy to say it holds up pretty well, with some great guest performances by vocalists Amy Malkoff, Jennifer Truesdale and Michael Holland, and musicians David Hamburger (Dobro), Billy Novick (penny whistle), Mark Simos (fiddle). Brice Buchanan (guitar), Seth Connelly (bass), Dennis Pearne (bass), Laura Wood (percussion) and Michael Cahill (drums). Songs range from the all-too-topical ("Kid Who Looks Like Me," about unexpected pregnancy; "I Can't Remember Life Before I Got Here," about incarceration; "The Sweetest Poison" about addiction), to arcane history ("Three If by Air," about a Boston inventor who hang glided off Old North Church - in 1754) to family legends ("German Violin") and rock'n'roll dreams ("Everything Makes Me Cry These Days Except the Rolling Stones"). A remastered digital album is on its way to folk radio, and you can find it on Apple and Amazon Music (and still find the physical CD on my website). Hope you enjoy it!
