Story

I first heard I Know You Rider performed by a local band called Medicine Wheel in Oxford, Ohio, back in the late 1970s. Later I heard a version by the Grateful Dead. When I decided that my next album project would involve five original songs and five covers, I immediately thought about I Know You Rider as a possibility. The vocal range was perfect for me, and my music partner Ed Edwards has provided an amazing musical frame for this rendition. I hope you like it.

Story

Copper Mountain is my favorite place to ski in Colorado. I often go with my friend Tom Bache-Wiig, who is a ski guide there.  One day I was sitting in Jax restaurant at the base of the main hill, waiting for Tom to finish guiding. As I reflected on my experiences of the day's skiing and all the excitement and inspiring images, the tune for this song began to take shape in my mind. I grabbed a pencil and my notepad and began to jot down lyrics. In about twenty minutes, I had a good first draft. When I got home, I worked out the chord progression and rhythm. After polishing for a couple of months, I went down to Summit Road Studio in Parker and let Ed Edwards work his magic. I laid down a rhythm guitar track and then the vocal. I went home and a few days later the finished song appeared in my email in-box. Ed had added additional rhythm guitar, lead guitar, djembe, and background vocals. The finished song transports me back to the experiences I had that day every time I hear it. I hope it takes you to a nice place, too.
