In 2001, Julianne left town. She took Caden with her. And rightfully so. I was a financial, emotional and spritual mess. I wanted them close, but there was not a lot I could do. What I didn’t expect was how my brain would react. Every stranger with a kid that […]

Ladies and gentlemen, Obolers, children of all ages, There is a cover song contest! It’s like American Idol, sort of. The guys thought it would be a good idea to play a song that people might recognize but never expect, and since then we’ve been having fun trying to determine […]

After careful consideration, drummer Josh Zampino has decided to step out of Obol. Josh has been my lieutenant and advisor on the Obol songs since he joined the project, and to say he will be missed is a gross understatement. The timing for these things is never good, and this […]
