My new duets album, Accomplice One, is OUT. I am so thrilled to share this record with you. It took me 2 years to record it, and I am very proud of it. There are so many great moments on this record that I truly cherish.

This video is one of my favorite songs from Accomplice One, that I recorded with one of the best artists out there – Mark Knopfler. When I approached Mark about playing on my album, he told me he would love to but it has to be one of his songs and none of that fast stuff. I immediately concurred, as I love all his compositions. We sat down with our acoustic guitars, and he sang me the song, “You Don’t Want To Get You One of Those”. It’s brilliantly written, and honestly and humbly performed. We recorded it like a performance, playing and singing in the same room. We purposely left it raw and didn’t try to polish it up. It was a great experience for me to be directed by such an accomplished artist as Mark.
