The WFPA is a member supported music community and educational effort. Our mission statement: To gather the global community of front porch minded musicians and help them do good work, bring roots music education into schools free of charge, and enhance communities by redirecting the tremendous energies of local musicians.
We call our members “SongFarmers.” A “SongFarmer” is any artist who uses their music to make their families, their hometowns, their careers better. Join the WFPA, become a SongFarmer, start a hometown SongFarmers Music Chapter, support roots music education in schools and so much more. Visit our website for information: www.songfarmers.org
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. Why record a full length national release on an iPhone? Read MJ’s blog about it HERE
