What’s up horsies? I know I’m a louse at updating this thing. I want to get better and blog more thoughts, y’know? Anyhow, I’ll keep this brief.
First, I’m opening up for one of my first favorite contemporary songwriters, Justin Townes Earle. A long time ago I started following him at my good friend, Eric’s recommendation. Actually around the time I first started playing guitar – Eric also taught me my first chords. That Eric, he’s a real gem. Anyhow, It was always a dream to open up for JTE and now I’m doing it at the end of this month.
Through JTE I Found Cory Branan, who I am also opening up for, later this month. Cory Branan is one of the best solo songwriters out there doing it. Reminding me every time that it’s cool to be real good at guitar, too.
OH SHIT, I forgot – I got engaged on my last tour in New Orleans to my lovely long time friend/girlfriend Noelle. I asked her underneath a sketchy church bell near the venue I was playing. Seemed like the “wrong side of the street” but we made the right things happen.
Noelle is also the leading force behind all of my tours. We harmonize like a bell. She works very hard alongside Andrea Borkowski, by the name Spinach Teeth Productions. It’s very interesting watching those two kindred spirits grow.
Noelle and I bought a new (to us) Van. This means we’ll be taking tours more seriously. Speaking of which….
JUST ANNOUCED A HEAVY LOAD OF AUG/SEPT DATES! Please check them out and tell your friends… that’s how this stuff works.
In the works – a full band tour, and another big tour before the year is over. Life gets hard a lot, but it gets awesome a lot, too. ALways trying to remember that nothing lasts forever so I must embrace it all. I’m excited for the rest of the year.
Oh, and here’s a video from Little Room In Florida sessions I filmed just outside of Panama City a couple months ago.
May you enjoy all of the AC on this globally warmed summer,
