In retirement, I decided to pick up the guitar again and learn more than five chords. I bought a guitar at a local shop and hired the young man that sold it to me to give me lessons. Little did I know that this young man I hired, Chris Julian, was going to provide much more than just lessons. Our relationship turned into a partnership and friendship. Even though he was less than half my age, Chris became a mentor, encourager, teacher of music theory as well as practicality. To everyone’s surprise, I started writing songs. He helped me refine them and urged me to record them. He opened doors to other local musicians. Collectively, I began referring to this group musicians as Loco Lobo. The result is this album.
Loco Lobo is an eclectic group of superb musicians and vocalists I have surrounded myself with to make the songs I’ve written become a reality. They have made this possible and helped an old man fulfill a dream.
