Interview with Lisa Stock, Filmmaker

When Lisa Stock agreed to be interviewed for my blog, A Southern Missive, I was ecstatic, and I have to say that she provided a superior in-depth interview. This talented and beautiful lady is a filmmaker, writer and actress working in the mythic arts.

6th Street Blues: Song Lyrics by Rickey Pittman

The CD of original songs is progressing. My friend and co-founding member of Angus Dubhghall, Tom McCandlish, is going beyond the call of duty to help me get this done. Not only is he recording me playing guitar (and some bass) and singing my songs, he has graciously consented to sing some of my songs himself. As Tom is the best vocalist I’ve ever worked with in the many bands I’ve been a member of, I was flattered that he would help me out. His will be the voice you’ll hear on what will likely be my first song on Youtube and iTunes: The 6th Street Blues.
