How Precious 04:13
Pieces 05:06
My House 03:43
Alone, looking everywhere  Have I lost you somewhere I pause to wonder All the sun you give How can it be you shine so bright And not be seen I pause to wonder
 One step, we can bring it around Maybe you’re wanting something new All the things we have, we do it together You’re the reason why we can make it something better Won’t you come and take my hand Aren’t we ready now to start it off Keep living this miracle I pause to wonder 
 All the things we are, we do it together You’re the reason why we can make it something better Won’t you come and take my hand Aren’t we ready now to start it off again Keep living this miracle I pause to wonder ©2021 Sound Vibes Music

Here now comes, and needs to be heard -- a powerfully vibrant, new crop of songs and music featuring both new and some familiar forms, but with uniquely tailored melodies and moving lyrics that by the end of each track, combine to offer something somehow more compelling than what is commonly served up in the rotation...

“What you do is art, thank you so much”, as one pair of world championship sportsman record holders has put it; “Thank you—your music has really helped me out a lot today”, as said a quiet young girl from the Midwest; “These songs are, extreeemely interesting, how did you...” from a fellow musician/writer/recording artist; “Outstanding—incredible range and depth”; “OMG, this is the music we should be hearing on the radio; it’s like you’ve invented your own genre...” 

This is what original music sounds like -- marked by impressive stylistic range... "Damn solid songs, they go the distance"; “That melody, those words, it changes you”; among other reviews, very humbly and with much unassuming gratitude we can believe, registered...

A cross between James Taylor, Squeeze, and Steely Dan; a devoted acolyte of Van Morrison, McCartney-Lennon, Irving Berlin, and a pinch from (American) musical Godfathers, CSN&Y — reminding us especially during these times of geographic and social restriction and protective isolation, to continue keeping our focus on the long-term fields of the future; where the outlook is very sound and assured, and our best imaginings have flourished through whatever passages of night that they’ve weathered to get there: keeping this Hope and Reality very well defended, vigorous, fresh and alive -- 

Welcome to the anchoring and renewing power, of The Home Fire.
