"I'm so grateful to you for continuing to support my music and me.. and very pleased to have this opportunity to share this album with you. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed writing and playing these songs. Hopefully , as you listen to this album, you'll hear a reflection of my life and travels over the last couple of years."
A brilliant collection of 15 guitar instrumentals featuring 14 originals and one arrangement of "Come, Thou Fount Of Every Blessing"... For those of you that enjoyed Danny's first outing "Guitar Out Front" we think you will be pleased by his growth as a composer.
