Delighted to see that the Americana Music Association UK shared my blog post about lockdown; thoughts about how better equality and representation in music might be achieved in light of the BLM protests X

Thanks CHILLFILTR.com for the lovely write up and for sharing the track to Spotify, made our day! 🌈🙏💓👇 ' A classic roots ensemble of acoustic guitar, double bass, dobro, and mandolin underscores the rawness and the fragility... A sense of bittersweetness and enduring vulnerability, the live performance aspect of this recording allows the group dynamic to truly shine. "Take This Dance" combines an exquisitely melodic and tasteful squareneck dobro with singer Carmen Phelan's breathy and poignant soprano, and delivers a timeless example of why love is always worth fighting for'

If you’re upset about regular folk hoarding toilet paper, wait till you hear about how a tiny percentage of rich people have hoarded most of the world’s wealth.

#Repost @mrrpmurphy • • • • • • They say there's no crying in baseball, but I was emotional from the second I started working with director Chris Bolan and producers Alexa Fogel, Brendan Mason and Jason Blum on "A Secret Love," out tomorrow on NETFLIX. I am so so proud of this work, which examines the 60-year love story of Terry Donahue and Pat Henschel. Terry and Pat are true pioneers and instant icons, and it's an honor to be able to tell their hopeful epic story.
