In-Tuition Albums: “Blues” and “Mandopoly

In-Tuition was chosen as the title of these two new recordings for two reasons: 1) to encapture the intuitive approach I take to music, and 2) more importantly, to raise money for my doctoral work in Counseling Psychology.

I have been accepted into the Counseling Psychology doctoral program at Indiana University-Bloomington. My research focus (unsurprisingly) is exploration of the psycho-therapeutic modalities and interventions most pertinent and beneficial to the creative community. Tied in with this is also creative resistance and ambivalence (the old “writer’s block” or self-disparaging “I suck” comments). I have been unsuccessful in finding doctoral funding and hope that the timely release of these albums pay for a year of doctoral work.

While most of these tunes were created with studio grade gear/conditions, some come from practice tapes, live performances, and songwriting sketches.  This recording will not knock down with flawless performances or audiophile sound.  It will, however, share a significant chunk of who I am with you, as music is truly my native language.
