New Lyric Video for “BUCKET OF LOVE” on my YouTube Channel. The video is new, but the song is not!  I'm beyond grateful that it continues to be sung by choirs in BC, Australia, Sweden & the USA.  I wrote this song in the 90s, sang it with various duos, trios, etc, then recorded it with the band AUGUST on our 2007 album The Sweetest Day.  That is the audio you'll hear in the lyric video.  Link here to the new video.  Hope you enjoy it!

"...your straight-ahead style and how you use rhythms to provide unexpected tension/release moments.  It's intriguing and very subtle. Your songs are singable and poetic, and I can easily see why so many musicians want to perform with you, and collaborate on your songs. Echoed Light is a good body of work which harmonizes together like a painting or scenes in a play."
