05/21/13 - Years in the Making
It's been a bit since I've updated, but what else is new? We've been playing some shows, I celebrated my 34th birthday with a bash at Bohemeo's with Little Outfit, The Snow Indian, The Wayward Sons and The Dragliners, we've been prepping to record a Wayward full-length and I've been booking more shows.
First up, Huke and I have been spending some time in the garage kicking out tunes for a full-length release. It won't be an expensive project or anything. It will be us, working together, to created an album. We've never really done that before, so after 4 years, we feel our relationship is solid enough to share the studio. There will be a mixture of new songs and old songs. Whatever we put down that we want to share. We'll be doing it a few tracks a month and posting them on Bandcamp until we're complete.
I'm also working on a lo-fi solo recording. I haven't mentioned it to anyone until now, but it's in the works. I've got some songs that I've worked out, but don't really feel like doing a proper album, so I'll be doing them in my bedroom. I'm deciding if I'll stick with the reel-to-reel recordings I've been doing or redo everything digitally. Fun decisions!
In 3 weeks, I'll be heading out for the solo tour, which has me excited beyond belief. I'm ready to get out of the Houston area. As much as we love each other, I think we're both sick of one another. If attendance at the last few gigs says anything, I'm correct.
At the end of July and beginning of August, Robert Nathan Taylor and I will be doing some duo gigs around Texas and Louisiana. Check the tour dates section for information on those. We haven't done anything like that in a while, so they'll be a lot of fun.
Alright, be safe out there, folks! Remember, you can listen to, buy and share my music at Bandcamp. Hope you dig it.
