07/05/15 - On the Road for These Lonesome Nights...
Good morning, folks! I am sitting here at my desk doing this update because I just finished packing up the car to head out on tour! These Lonesome Nights has been released online and I got the physical copies in hand now, so it's time to sell these the old fashioned way.
For the next week, I'll be travelling through Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and East Tennesee, meeting new folks and having some fun sharing my songs with folks. If you are in any of those areas, come check out a show! Click on the link to the left for all of the dates. In August, I'll be doing my runs through Texas.
Also on the horizon is the Bayou Bonanza Festival on July 25th at Eastdown Warehouse. It is a fundraiser to help a little girl with medical issues have her home updated so she can come back home with her parents. It's a pretty good cause, if I do say so myself, and a good reason to check out a newer venue filled with musical acts, art and other fun activites all day.
That's all I have for now! Check out the Facebook page for photo updates from this current tour...oh, and check out the new album, it is for sale directly from me at Bandcamp or from online retailers like Amazon, iTunes, Loudr and more. Be safe out there, folks! See you soon!
06/15/15 - These Lonesome Nights Ahead...
Hope all is well out there, friends! I come to you off the heels of a nice little run through New Orleans, Memphis and Jackson, MS. We had some good shows, got the word out about the new album and even sold a copy or 10 of the new album on flash drives, so it is going to be out there in the world soon enough. Sunday will see the official physical release and late July will see the official release of the album in physical form. Of course, I will have physical copies while I'm on the road in early July promoting the album.
Speaking of touring, I have one local show at Midnite Slice on June 27th, then from July 5th-11th, I will be going through Alabama, North Carolina, east Tennesee and Georgia promoting the release. Upon returning home, I will work on local album release shows to celebrate getting this thing knocked out. I cannot wait to share it with everyone. I think you will all dig it. I do and really, that's what is most important, right?
As always, check back here for all updates or hit me up on Facebook, though it is virtually useless at this point in time to be on Facebook as an artist, but maybe a post will squeeze through to you! When the album is released on Sunday in digital form, I will have links set up for you to download the album from. Check out the Bandcamp site to pre-order, that way you will wake up to the album on the 21st. Wow! Take care, folks!
05/07/15 - New album, Tours and more...
To begin, I'm making a new album! It will be called 'These Lonesome Nights' and I got full funding from an IndieGoGo campaign that I never posted here. It has about 24 hours left, so if you don't check the Facebook page, visit here to donate! The actual album will be 8-10 songs and about 3-4 classics will be redone the way I wanted them done as 'digital bonus' songs. The actual track listing of the song depends on the length of the songs. Eventually I would like to do these on vinyl, so it will be constrained to the length of an LP.
Next up, I will be on the road quite a bit this summer. Right now, I'm doing a run in June to Memphis, New Orleans and Jackson, then I will be heading to Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky and Georgia for some shows in July. What's coming up in August? I'll probably hit the Hill Country, San Antonio, Austin and more. With the new album coming out, I will be hitting all sorts of spots around Texas and beyond. Let me know if you want me to come to your town, I'll make sure I get there, especially if you can host.
That's all I have for now. Check out the 'shows' page to see where I'll be at all times. I suck at updating the main page, but with the shows page, I always stay on top of adding shows. Check it out! Hope to see you all around sooner than later!
