The California Sound, Burrito Brothers' Chris James with Bruce Hilliard

Welcome to the Better Each Day episode 197 with 138 days until Christmas and 365 days until this time next year. I’m your host Bruce Hilliard and I hope your world is a wonderful place.

My hand surgery went well--it’s been about three weeks--and I won’t be playing guitar worth a damn for a while but the time off doing the prescribed exercises and pretending I’m right-handed has inspired me to do things set aside for showing off my penguin flipper dexterity: mix and release a new single called California. We’ll get to that as soon as we talk and listen to the music of guest Chris James of the Burrito Brothers.


California is a song I wrote a couple of years ago on Whidbey Island. I’ll save the details for a future show but for now, here's a teaser. I had the help of Saho Yamashita on backing vocals and rhythm guitar and some really tasty pedal steel guitar licks from Dakota Holden.


I hope you enjoy my song California.
