Ben C and I were brought together by producer/engineer Kris Farm in late 2003 at Oregon State University. The band Maryspeak put together an original album of Ben's songs and called it *Tiny Blue Dot*. It was finally released to Spotify in mid-2022. A new batch of songs was recorded at Hallowed Halls in Portland Oregon in March 2023. I am in a surprisingly natural role here as second guitar and harmony vocalist. Ben C and I will duo up to play acoustic sets around Oregon, and our power quartet is rounded out by original drummer Chris Harver and OSU-alum sensible bassist Charlie Norris.
