May News from Memphis...

1. The Sherpas' "Promise to Harry" streaming now

The big news is that the Sherpas long awaited "Promise to Harry" is now streaming on all platforms. 

Though the album won't land at radio till June 1st, the word is out! You can listen HERE at Spotify...

...or just search for "Promise to Harry" or "The Sherpas" at Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music et al. It should pop right up

Lord knows, it's been a labor of love, writing and recording the new songs over time, the pandemic, distance... health challenges. And it took a hardy, big-hearted, talented band of supporters to make it happen.

(I'm told I'll receive my big box of CDs tomorrow.)

—Our website ( will soon have the CD available for purchase and/or download... and I'll let you know when it's there. In the meantime, you can pre-order from my partners Michael Lille and Tom Prasada-Rao. (Just message them from Facebook.)


2. Ireland and Scotland: My heart overflows

It's not enough to say these tours are special. Ireland feels more like home than home. And my first tour group in Scotland—what a lovely, generous bunch of people with whom to explore the country from Edinburgh to the Highlands.

More to come on those tours and future ones. If you'd like to learn more, you can find all the info on my 2024 tours at my website. Click HERE for Ireland and HEREfor Scotland.


3. Poem of the Month: God Speaks in Short Sentences

Well, She does.

God speaks in short sentences.

In my experience 
she usually gets 
right to the point.

Stop right now.
Don’t do it.


Yes yes yes.
Go go go.


Tell him you love him.


Say you’re sorry.
Tell her you missed her.

It’s OK to cry.

You know.
Don’t overthink it.

Say it again.
Pass it on.

Say it again.

Pass it on.
