Pale Green Eyes 2:220:00/2:22
- Acoustic Music Works
Bought my Sullivan guitar from Steve at AMW. Outstanding customer service... he even returned the Red Molly hat i left at their store on his own dime! I can't speak highly enough of the service, patience and advice... plus any friend of Scott Ainslie is a friend of mine!
- South Hills School of Business & Technology
Before i duck into the phone booth and emerge wearing my Folksinger cape, during daylight hours I am part of the Graphic Arts program at SHSB&T... without exaggeration, the best place I have ever worked. If you're interested in graphic design, come check our program out. (I also do personalized one-on-one instruction in Adobe inDesign, Adobe illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Quark XPress.)
My design and copywriting web site, not quite finished yet. Okay, it's barely started... it'll be here someday!
I struggled with keeping my music web site live, current and looking somewhat designed for almost two years. Every time I had a tech problem, it was either a multiple-call struggle, or the problems never did get fixed. I switched to Hostbaby and have been nothing but impressed at how easy they make it. Frankly, I'd rather put spare time towards my music rather than sweating over the perfect web presence.
Singer Songwriters & Capo'd Cohorts
- Marc Douglas Berardo
Nobody writes songs with a sense of place better than Marc. You can smell the sea salt in the air on the songs from his CD Harbor.
- Hannah Bingman
Hannah is one of my favorite singer/songwriters, and i love the times we get to do a split bill or workshop together.
- Jud Caswell
If there was any justice in the world, Jud Caswell would be a household names. One of the finest performing songwriters on the scene today.
- Joe Crookston
I fell in love with Joe Crookston's music the first time I heard Fall Down as the Rain. One of the few performers I can think of that have gotten better ever time I've heard him live, and to this day, the only person doing this for a living who has ever asked me to open a show for him.
- Carolann Solebello
I was fortunate enough to work on the graphic design for Carolann's last three CDs. Carolann is a fine musician and songwriter, and if you only knew her through her work in Red Molly, you deserve to check her solo work out, too.
