My indie record label, Birch Beer Records! Check it out for news, our store/label catalog, links to all kinds of birch beer, things like that.
And check out BBR projects I Support Local Music in Massachusetts on Facebook and the We Support Local Music blog.
Some of my favorite people are local musicians! I’ve had the distinct honor of adding harmonies to a number of local musicians’ recordings, such as Ruthann Baler, Dan Cloutier, Lori Diamond and Fred Abatelli, Joe Fredette, Andrew Greene, Ron Israel, Ashley Jordan, Steve Rapson, Sonic Bridge, and Levi Schmidt.
Some of my other favorite people are great visual artists!
- Leslie Lee, who designed the artwork for My Own True North
- Dan Flynn, who designed the Birch + Beer + Records logo and the Birch Beer Christmas Cheer artwork
- Jon Hansen, who designed the BBR bottlecap logo
