06/10/14 - Time to Head East...

Summer is arriving and that means it is time to hit the road. This Friday, I kick off the "Headin' East" tour with two local dates (Friday at Cork Grinders in Baytown and Saturday at Bohemeo's in Houston) and an appearance on 90.1FM KPFT's Deadbeat show. I'll be on the air at 5pm, so be sure to listen in!

The tour takes us through Johnson, City, TN, Richmond, VA, Brooklyn, NY, Philadelphia, PA, Washington, DC, Canton, OH, Michigantown, IN, St. Louis, MO, Memphis, TN and Dallas, TX. If you live in one of these places, check the tour dates page to see when we'll be there. If you can't make the shows, check out the blog tab for updates on Tumblr.

Upon returning home, I'll be reuniting with Huke for a Wayward Sons show over at Midnite Slice on July 5th. Be sure to come out and welcome me back home. It'll be great to see all those who attend. Then, we're taking a break until July 25th when we play with Caleb Caudle and Those Crosstown Rivals in downtown Houston.

Alright, that's all I have for now, folks! Go order the new album from The Wayward Sons at our Bandcamp site. It's also available at MyTexasMusic.com, iTunes, Amazon and any other place you get music. Check it out and help spread the word. Many thanks!

05/15/14 - Comic Books, Road Gigs and more...

Man, if you told 12-year-old me how life would be going when I was in my 30's, I wouldn't believe anything this cool would be happening to lame, old me.

Next week, Huke and I will be doing some Wayward Sons sets at Comicpalooza. That's right, we're playing a comic book convention. How sweet is that? Up until my house fire in 2008, I had crates of comics I held onto for years, so this is an excellent turn of events for me. We'll be playing on Friday, May 23rd and Monday, May 26th. Come see us!

I'm less than a month away from being on tour. I seriously cannot explain how excited I am to be on the road and heading east. It's all uncharted territory for me on the first week, then we'll roll back through the places I've come to know over the years. Check out the tour dates and if I'm in your area, come see me!

I haven't booked anything after the tour except for an appearance at the AWESOME Seabrook Music Festival. Outside of that, the future is wide open. There are some e-mails out and possible Louisiana/Mississippi run for The Wayward Sons, but it's all very much an idea and not a reality yet. Keep checking back to see if that changes.

Alright, that's all I have for now, folks! Remember, you can listen to, buy and share my music at Bandcamp. Any way you spread the word helps out. Many thanks!

04/15/14 - Spring is Here and a Tour is Booked...

Right now, the last cold front is moving out, the flowers are already blooming, the baseball season is over 10 games in and life is looking pretty good. Hope you're all feeling the same way.

I just got back from a weekend trip to Dallas including an appearance at Opening Bell Coffee's Heartworn Highways Series, hosted by Ronnie Fauss. It was a blast. I got to play with Michael Prysock, who put on a hell of a show. We closed out the trip by catching the Astros take on the Rangers. Not a bad way to kick off April, at all.

The first leg of the summer touring is done. In mid-to-late June, we'll be heading east to visit places like Brooklyn, Philly, DC and more. Check out the 'shows' page for more information on that. It should be a great run.

Also, to keep reminding everyone, I'm still hosting the Open Mic, which is every other Tuesday at Cork Grinders. I'm going to miss one or two over the summer due to touring, but Patrick will hold down the fort while I'm gone, for sure. Check my show schedule for dates if you want to come out.

Alright, that's it for now. The new album from The Wayward Sons would make a great soundtrack to the spring weather, get it at our Bandcamp site. It's also available at MyTexasMusic.com, iTunes, Amazon and any other place you get music. Check it out and help spread the word. Many thanks!
