It hasn’t exactly been a quiet summer. It’s just been quiet solo-performance-wise. But there’s been a lot going on!
1. I’ve been hard at work with Dan Cloutier, helping him out with his upcoming new album: The Battle of Greenland. Noteworthy: I play synthesizer, keyboard, melodica, and am singing on it (a whole bunch!). Even more noteworthy: he’s doing a Kickstarter project for it, and it’s really doing well! The campaign ends on October 1 – so now is the time to be a part of it, if you can. Trust me, you’ll want to – that’s not even a question! 😉 Check it out here! And watch his awesome project video too!
2. THE NEW BAND. As if Dan and I weren’t doing enough musically, helping each other with our solo work…We have also officially started a band, along with our good friend and FANTASTIC musician Ricardo Barraza. Our name? THE GREAT MOLASSES FLOOD. Yup, it’s cool. We are excited. We’re just getting started, and we have a couple of shows booked in October – check us out when you can!
3. As far as solo work goes, I’m playing the Pepperell Fall Festival this weekend, and also going to attend the NERFA Conference this November, after taking a couple of years away. I’m booking myself into some late-night guerilla showcases – and really looking forward to the new conference location too.
5. I just recorded an interview for Jacob Haller‘s podcast Tell Me About Your Song. We talked about Here Now, the title track from my last album. This was a *great* conversation – look for it in a few weeks!
And how are you~??
Thanks for listening…
