After we were through recording this episode, Tim mentioned Social Distortion and how he met Mike Ness and then Mike Neumann lifted up the leg of his jeans to show us his tattoo. Too cool!
This is a picture of Shelby's mosaic she was working on the day we recorded this episode. Also, here is a link to her website for her Non-Profit Cozy Christmas.
Born in San Antonio, TX, Mike started playing guitar at 10 years old. He lives in the Hill Country now and plays all over that region with occasional trips to tour in Key West, FL. He is a singer songwriter that is deeply rooted in the styles of Guy Clark, Townes, and Willie. His first EP will be coming early in May 2022. It was recorded at the one and only Yellow Dog Studios in Wimberly, TX. He creates songs and stories of new beginnings, love, loss, and the ever long search for meaningful art and music through the lens of his heroes.
We also got to meet an amazing young lady. Shelby is a pretty cool kid who has a non-profit organization to help animals that are living in shelters. The link to her email is
