Southern Angel (Studio)
I wrote this song for my Wife Deb as a token of my love, and used it later for our first dance at our wedding. I wrote the lyrics and music, then brought it to Bare-Trax productions, did the lead vocals, doubled the lead vocals, harmony vocals, electric, 6-string acoustic, and twelve string guitar while Mike Walter did the Bass and Strings.

A little bit more (Studio)
The core lyrics for "A Little Bit More" were from an original that Ken wrote in 1995 as an ode to being in the "friend zone". We took it off the shelf, dusted it off, broke out the tools and came up with this...Cherokee's first original! It took 3rd place at the annual PTSCMA competition. Ken plays the guitar intro, and wrote the chord scheme. Ken also re-wrote the lyrics with Rick West and Dave Hale.
