The director of the documentary “A Life Well Played” asked me to write a song especially for use in the film. He wanted to show the development of a tune from writing, rehearsing, and recording.
I was working on a song called “October” at the time and suggested that.
He liked the tune (which served as the main theme for credits as well) but wanted me to change the title.
So I called it “Up Town.”
The film did make the 2016 rounds of Film Festivals in the US and Canada and won Best Documentary Short for Rene Erickson (director) at the Highway 61 Festival.

This is an outtake clip from the documentary “A Life Well Played”.
It was just recently rediscovered.
The clip is of Clint Hoover (harmonica) and me playing “Astoria” ( a song we recorded in 2008).
Clint and I eventually went on to form the quartet East Side with Matt Senjem and Michael Bissonnette.
We made two albums.
Clint has since moved to Pittsburgh but this is a nice memento of our partnership and friendship.
The clip was filmed in the fall of 2015.
