So honored and thrilled that my song “Her Hair Was Red” is on the new Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell album “The Traveling Kind” produced by Joe Henry, coming out on May 12, 2015.
The Radio Free Song Club has made these beautiful virtual vinyl singles of my songs ”No Stars in New York City”, “Drinking Thru Christmas” and “Blue Plate Special”.
David Scott and I are proud of our duet album Turn Like the World Does on My Dark Star Records, and wish people would discover it! ! Please give it a listen. Here is a review of it from New York Music Daily.
The LP Turn Like the World Does is available from online retailers and features 8 new co-writes from David and I, plus writing contributions from Norman Blake of Teenage Fanclub, Bill DeMain of Swan Dive, and my Parlor James partner Ryan Hedgecock. The EP The Way You Remember Things, also available from online retailers, includes 3 bonus tracks not available on the LP. All the songs were recorded at Davie’s home in East Kilbride, Scotland.

My latest solo CD, Sheffield Streets, on New York City’s Urban Myth Records was recorded in Los Angeles with my friend the great drummer Don Heffington producing and drumming in his home studio. I did 2 thrilling duets, one with Elvis Costello on my father’s song Monsters of the Id, with my father Mose Allison on piano and Elvis on vocals, and one with Dave Alvin playing and singing on an old song of mine, Everybody Ought to Know.
