The weirdest sea shanty ever written? Possibly! The story of Noah's Ark shifted to modern times, with climate change deniers, conspiracy theorists, and creationists aboard. Listen to the full tune at this link.

I've already been informed I'm going to hell for mocking religion, so that's taken care of, and you needn't bother. See you there.

New single released this week! Kind of folk-rockish with perhaps just a hint of pop? Well, you decide. Hop over to my blog post "The Intellectual and the Banjo Player: A Story of Doomed Love" to listen to the full song and get the kind of goofy story behind the song. 

Digital sales benefit Doctors Without Borders. Even if you don't buy, please share... it really helps! 

BTW - I have started an email list. Subscribers get first news of any new music, freebies, and exclusive subscribers-only stuff from time to time. Sign up on any page on my site (down at the bottom)

Winding down what has been a great salt-flavored year for me, performing with the Shanty Choir MIR / Шанти-хор МИР of Saint Petersburg. To kick off the year-end holiday season (and to liven the Turkey Day celebrations of family and friends in my native USA), I'm pleased to announce today the release of a new single.

It's a Christmas sea shanty - lots of fun, complete with a very un-Jesuslike carpenter, rum, and ladies of indifferent virtue... the usual sailor themes. It's all for a good cause too. Please stop by the page, have a listen, and grab your personal copy from Amazon, iTunes or CD Baby.

New single released! Less than 1 week and it's BANNED on a large U.S. music community for "politics and sex". :-D So mateys, if yer sensibilities can't handle a (slightly) bawdy irreverent (in other words, authentic) sea song, steer clear of these DANGEROUS WATERS! Sales proceeds go to support the work of Doctors Without Borders, whom I hope will accept it despite the sleazy source. :-D :-D

Had a great time in Sochi last month playing with Saint Petersburg's Shanty Choir Mir, and bunking aboard the Spanish wooden schooner "Atyla". One outcome of that was this new song:

In a tiny French village in the famed Burgundy wine region, in a 400 year old stone house well off the beaten tourist path, master luthier Eric Stefanelli turns out "incroyable" replicas of classic American banjos.
