Chakchiuma Swamp Project
I am extremely excited to be working as an Artist-in-Residence with 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
Friends of Chakchiuma Swamp on my latest project!
I have recently finished writing a full-length album of songs based on my trips to Chakchiuma Swamp in Grenada, Mississippi.
Recording, mixing, and mastering for this project is complete and a release date has been set for April 22nd, 2023.
The album will include a booklet that features lyrics for each song and stories
from my adventures at Chakchiuma Swamp.
The album features guest musicians including Megan Hurt, Jamie Lee, Bill Baethke, and
Mississippi slide guitarist Wendy Jean Garrison.
Please click her name to check out her story and songs!
All proceeds from album sales will go directly to Friends of Chakchiuma Swamp 501(c)(3c) to help fund
the implementation of educational programs as well as the upkeep of the swamp boardwalks and trails
and any other miscellaneous needs the organization may come across.

In the meantime, you can listen to the very first song titled "Chakchiuma Swamp" here as well as demo recordings of a few more swamp songs. To read lyrics for songs that will be included on the album, please click here.
