Ever since we bought the ranch in April of 1998, it has been a musical refuge. I've long wanted to find a way to have concerts in our pasture. That dream is becoming a reality!
I cover artists from Muddy Waters to Gordon Lightfoot, from the Beatles to Merle Haggard, from Frank Sinatra to Emmy Lou Harris & Billy Holiday.
My experience here has already been the inspiration for several songs and serves as a muse. My original songs can best be described as folk/rock/jazz with a subtle twang. I play gigs and weddings all over the west, but my favorite are the summer evenings of music on the deck overlooking the Owens Valley with friends, guests and family members enjoying the warm evenings and ever changing light on the Inyo Mountains.
Please visit the Walking Rain and Coale-Johnson Music sites for downloads, CDs and updates on new musical projects, especially with my long time, VERY long time, musical partner Bob Bruen.
