The new full-length CD is being recorded now at the log cabin artist’s studio in Kentucky. The CD has several new compositions like Hippy Luv, Sunday Afternoon, standards like Little Maggie (on the banjo) … plus the story song written in the tradition of Alice’s Restaurant called “Pamper Creek” based on an actual experience MJ had while living in Mousie KY.

What makes this album really unique is that it is being completely recorded inside the artist cabin MJ build himself on an iPhone 6+ instead of recording studio gear using special Apogee gear and Ear Trumpet mics. The acoustics, as you can imagine from this video, are wonderful.
