New CD In The Works

Although we're really excited our CD, Rain is STILL on the charts, a new CD is already in the works. I'm putting the finishing touches on the songs and recording demos, in preparation to head back to the studio. The next CD will be a departure from previous albums in several ways.  First of all it will be very stripped down and stark. Secondly, it will be very dark, as the songs, for the most part will deal with tribulations over the past 10 years, since the second CD, which myself or those close to me have gone through over that time, as well as the struggles between the holy and the profane in dealing with some of these adversities.  There won't be any silly songs, or much happiness, for a change, but I have to say, it was very cleansing for me, going through the process of writing these songs....  Stay tuned.....

Booking & Etc

Booking is going well for 2017.  Looks like we could wind up at some festivals we've never played and in some different regions!  Part of that is we're actively pursuing playing other parts of the country and yes, possibly even overseas, and part of it is the success of our album, Rain, which as of this week is STILL on the RMR charts (25 weeks straight and counting).

In the meantime, we're getting ready to begin recording the NEXT album, and I'm really excited about the project.  It will be quite a departure from the first three CDs in that it will be much more stripped down, and actually quite dark, but it was actually very therapeutic to write about some of the dark times I've gone through over the past 10 years, since the 2006 CD, Tales From A 2 Lane.  More about that later.

In the meantime, if you or your festival would like to book us this coming year, better act fast!  I only play a limited live schedule throughout the year!

2017 Here We Come

Although 2016 was a great year for us, with our first new CD in 10 years winding up staying on the RMR Contemporary Blues Charts for the entire last half of the year, and into the new year, we've got some exciting plans for the coming year, including.....

1. A new album which will drop hopefully late spring, early summer.  I'm really excited about this album as it will be a marked difference from our other projects.  It will be very "heavy" and "dark" but represents some of the stuggles I've been through over the past 10 years.

2. A more ambitious touring schedule.  Although we have a comfortable schedule of repeat performances at venues and festivals, we're planning on taking the act our further and reaching new audiences who may not have seen us perform before, and only heard us on radio etc.  In the past we've gotten requests from festivals across the nation and even overseas, and this year, we hope to make more of them.

How can you help?  Let your local festival know you'd like us to play there!  Just pass along our contact information!
