A Message From The Bone King:

Hey now, how y'all been? Since my last studio album, I've been busy touring (29 countries!), producing projects for other artists, and living my life the best I can. This CD features 12 tracks, all previously unreleased, chosen from more than 150 unfinished songs in my archive. Among these, I decided that the song "Bonetime" set the tone for the release. Therefore, I have reinvented myself as the King of Bones... and Bonetime it is!

These songs have a common thread: All of them are about the human condition. I do not write science fiction, scripts for documentaries or commercials... I tell stories about the human condition through blues songs. Here's the latest edition. Enjoy!
