The Transition

The Chime Travelers have been rocking and rolling for over 10 years. As Rick Kelly and I wind down this incredible experience, I am gearing up for the next phase which will focus on and incorporate original songs into the live performances. Since I am overlapping the two, I am a little behind on the recordings. I have been trying to stay on top of the Chime Travelers considerable song list of about 150 songs and get the new show going with a mostly new repertoire. Thankfully, Matt Berg is on bass guitar, playing the shows and jumping in there on the recordings too. Matt is a unique and versatile bass player and has a multitude of good ideas that we are putting into play. It is busy in the transition but a good position to cherish the past and look forward to the future.
