This upcoming Sunday April, 7th, I’ll be playing a stripped down set at the Charleston in Santa Monica. Paul Redel will be joining me on electric guitar and will also be one-upping me with his hat choice. Trust me, this man can rock a cap with the best of em’ and I’ll be wearing a nice one too.
We hit at 7:00, make sure to stay for Heather Donovan and Porter Lori at 8:00 and 9:00 respectively. This is a Koffeehouse production so you can rest assured they’ll be putting on a great show.
Grab a presale ticket in advance at Koffeehouse.com and save a few bucks.
This Sunday, December 9th I’ll be playing with my band one final time this year. We’ve added a few new songs to the set including a cover of an old classic. Lee Ferris and Andrew Ryan will also be on the bill. Buying a ticket in advance will save you a few bucks at the door, you can get those here. Come hang out with us at The Charleston in Santa Monica it’s gonna be a fun night!
The recording process began back in January and we are finally at the point of release. Come join me at Room 5 Lounge in LA on Friday, September 7th at 7:30 as me and my bandmates celebrate the release of Red Flags. You’ll get a free copy for showing up
About three and a half years ago, I walked into the Hotel for the first time. Immediately I thought to myself “I really want to play here and I am going to find a way to make it happen.” Fast forward to today and here I am telling you how excited I am to be playing in one of the premier singer/songwriter venues in LA. Paul Redel will be backing me up on electric guitar, I’d love to see you.
After years of playing solo acoustic, it’s about damn time I play a show with a band. I’m gonna have some incredibly talented dudes backing me up too. It’ll be Paul Redel on guitar, Matt Gotschall on bass and Nick Bearden on drums. I couldn’t have picked a better venue to do it at either. The Witzend in Venice Beach is one of those rare places where the sound is just as good as the vibe inside. It’s also known for hosting some of the most talented singer/songwriters in LA. You’re not gonna want to miss this one.
Well, the record is almost done and I’ve been itching to get out and play in the midst of all of this recording. I can’t wait for this Wednesday night when I’ll get to share the stage with Galena and Patrick Daly at the Macha Theatre in West Hollywood. We’ll get started at 8:00 and the show is free.
Catch an inside glimpse of the recording process in this series I’m putting up on Youtube. You should expect a second and possibly a third installment over the next few months.
Also, if you don’t have my first EP “In Between Homes” you can download it for free by leaving your email in the column to the right. You’ll also get an exclusive MP3 of the song “Red Flags” from the new record before it comes out.
It’s about that time everyone! I have finished writing all of the songs for the new EP and am currently putting on that final layer of polish. I expect to be back in the studio in January so look for a release in late spring/early summer 2012.
Not sure what I’m gonna call it yet but if you would like to have first dibs on a demo version of one of the songs before the record comes out, leaving your email to the right will be a great way to stay in the loop (you’ll also be able to download my last record for free.) I will also be documenting the recording process and will be putting up a “Making The EP” series on YOUTUBE. You can also be the first to see the new episodes by hopping on that mailing list.
I hope you are as excited to hear it as I am to record it, more to come very soon.
