02/19/15 - Where You Been?
Sorry for being so quiet lately. It has been quite the run of events lately, including a divorce that is currently going on. With that said, we're getting back to business as usual here in my world.
I've got a few solo gigs lined up and even some full band shows for The Wayward Sons. The first one of the upcoming shows is next week as we celebrate the birthday of our friend, and ninebullets.net writer, Laura Allmon. The Grizzly Band, Those Crosstown Rivals and Josh Nolan will be on the bill, as well. It'll be a fine show.
What's coming up? Well, I'm working on a stripped-down, solo, acoustic release that will come out sooner than later. I'm not sure if it will be an EP or LP, but it is coming. I'm also working a few trips out of state in the coming months. With the new household dynamic, I just need to figure out how to make it happen. See you all soon!
01/06/15 - And now...2015
Hope you all had a fine holiday season. I certainly did. Rest was the number one order of business and I actually got some in. I even started working on a new solo release, which will hopefully come out by the end of the year. Hopefully is the key word here, though.
Between naps, I ended up adding a couple of shows to the mix to close out the year. I ended at 93 shows for the year. I travelled over 10,000 miles, played with some killer band, made lifelong memories with friends and family, got to play a set a Minute Maid Park and even got some off-time in Ohio to visit my new favorite state as a simple tourist. 2014 was one of the best years I've had.
The new year will filled with shows all over the place. I'm working on hitting the road more and seeing more faces. Hopefully a few of you are amongst them. Also, the open mic at Cork Grinders is expanding to a weekly deal, so come hang out if you're in the area. If I'm not on the road, I'll be there. See you all soon!
12/12/14 - Closing Out The Year
I haven't done much updating the main page lately. Apologies for leaving it all drab and untouched.
Well, 2014 is coming to a close. It was an insane year for me. By the final day of December, I will have played 90 shows in 13 states. I'm very proud of the fact that I was able to cover so much ground, meet some many wonderful folks and share the stage with bands I love. It was a dream come true kind of year. Next year will less frequency in shows, but I'll be trying to hit the road much more.
Thanks to all of you from the support and for coming out to the shows when I've been in your area. It means the world to me and I want you all to know I appreciate it. Hope you all enjoy the holidays with your friends and families. Take care!
