On the JP side of things...I have been working on new songs. These are on the heavy side and they totally rip. I will finally be releasing my first CD entitled "The Purge". I have posted some of the songs that will be included. Check them out & stay tuned!
I have also had the pleasure of filling in for the Bands Big Hix and Radio Nashville. They play top 40 Country. I'm having a great time with a great bunch of guys and wonderful fans.
