Jon Wikstrom is my long-time friend and co-writer. We worked together for two years to produce this beautiful CD. It contains eleven masterfully written songs and some very fine performances. It is available on iTunes.
Bob Noone is the Weird Al Yankovich of the legal profession. He writes hilarious parodies about lawyers and "lawyering". And he should know - he is one himself! I produced these two comedy CD's - "Wing Tips Optional" and "Chicken Suit for the Lawyer's Soul" and am a proud member of Bob's performing backup band "The Well Hung Jury". Both his CD's are available on LawSongs.com.
