The Thaw is Alex & Mad Dog’s sixth improvisational collaboration. Like The Thaw, Au Naturel (2017), Alex & Mad Dog Live (2016) and Not Far from Hear (2016) feature just the duo with Alex on Celtic harp and Mad Dog primarily on Native American flute. (Mad Dog also appears on harmonica on Alex & Mad Dog Live and on Theremini on Not Far from Hear.) Alex also appears along with Mad Dog on significant portions of Apples & Honey (2017) and Between Two Worlds (2016).

Mad Dog writes from the moment and sings from his heart. His influences include sources as divergent as William Butler Yeats and the delta blues.

His spontaneous compositions on Theremin & flute range from aleatoric to ambient.
