This is a video I shot with a friend of the CSR Direct Project, Greg.  This is a simple introduction of myself, Greg and his role in the development, and the impact I have had on the "homeless" population, while I have been "homeless!"  Check out the 4 different formats now available of the Free Community Meals for western metro Twin Cities. MN.  And, what started all this work and positive impact. 

John Michael Talbot was someone I learned of when I was going to Concordia College (now University) in 1982, to become a Director of Christian Education, with a major in music.  I had just buried my father 2 yrs earlier, and turns out my life took a much needed course correction to heal from the first 22 years of my life.

James Taylor | The Making of Sweet Baby James

James Taylor was on of the most important singer/songwriter musician's I grew up on...  All of the songs they reference here are very familiar to me.  And, all the ones that were not mentioned.  Recently, I watched a much longer, full blown documentary about James Taylor.  It meant a great deal to put more of the story behind the songs, out for us to know.

JAMES TAYLOR & CAROLE KING | "YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND"

James Taylor and Carole King had & have a very special relationship as singer/songwriters.  This is one song from their return to perform at "the Troubadour."

NEIL YOUNG | "OLD MAN" & "HEART OF GOLD"

This is the type of performance I would have definitely attended.  These are the kind of renditions I love the best!  Just the singer/songwriter, early in his career.

This seems to be pure music and talent, and none of the corporate nonsense or celebrity affecting, or infecting great messages.

DON MCLEAN | THE MEANING OF "AMERICAN PIE"

This is a song that was very influential in my formative years.  It is thick with content and meaning.  

This is a song that I grew up hearing when all of this was happening.  Especially as a country, we have failed to learn our lessons.  So, I share songs like this to emphasize the truth of that fact.  On an individual level, we must stop lying if we're to make America "great" in the first place!

HIGHLIGHTED MUSIC VIDEO | SOCIAL JUSTICE

This song and video is about the killing of 4 Ohio State students by our own government.  Far too many things have not changed in our society.  This song takes me down memory lane, and speaks to all the injustice in our country, and the world!  

HIGHLIGHTED MUSIC VIDEO | SOCIAL JUSTICE

This is the song "Fortunate Son" by John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival.  The photos represent the time period in which the song was written.


This song was about the Vietnam War, and happens to be an extended version.

HIGHLIGHTED MUSIC VIDEO | SOCIAL JUSTICE

This is an interview between Dan Rather and John Fogerty, where John is talking about the meaning behind and the setting surrounding the song "Fortunate Son."

HIGHLIGHTED MUSIC VIDEO | SOCIAL AWARENESS

This song was a lesser known song I grew up on, by a couple of singer songwriters worthy of note.  Loggins & Messina partnered for a few years and had many hits during my High School years.  Seals & Crofts were another duo that made some hits that included unusual Rock & Roll instruments, like the mandolin.  Listen to the lyrics for a very important message.

HIGHLIGHTED MUSIC VIDEO | SOCIAL AWARENESS

This song (Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell) was a classic folk song about social awareness and change.
