Happy Holiday Seasons To All! A fair amount of ground to cover here but I wanted to take the time to fill you all in on all the upcoming stuff. NEW SOLO DISC I While taking the time to properly finish and mix the recording project I've been working on for the past year and a half, I took a couple nights to record a quickie SOLO disc. SOLO; meaning me, myself and I playing guitar and piano and singing....alone. Features new tracks "Timeless", "Never Mind My Blues", "Sundown" and good 'ol ones like "Firefly" and "Bluegrass" as far back as I can remeber the words. If ya like what I've been doing over the years, you're gonna want to have one. It is being pressed and printed as we speak and will be available in short order at shows and on-line only. NEW SOLO DISC II This one, not so SOLO, we'll be mixing over next month and finally have available some time soon I'm sure! NEW YORK, NEW YORK! Joing me Friday December 15 at 8:30pm upstairs at The Living Room in NYC. Yep, they got a new spot called Googies. I'm thinking of it as kind of the Rec Room as I intend to wreck it on thier Liberace lookin' white grand piano! 4 WAY STREET becomes The U.S. RAILS In an exciting metamorphosis, the unique Americana voice of Tom Gillam has joined Scott Bricklin, Joseph Parsons and Matt Muir and myself to record and form The U.S. Rails. We have a full length recording ready for mix and a very special one night show planned for Saturday December 23rd at World Cafe Live Downstairs with special guests Chris Kasper and Delaware's Johnny Duke & The Aces who are fresh off a tour with the legendary BB King. FULL BAND SHOWS-ANTI NYE!! Upcoming later in the month, I've decide to take New Years Eve off and play the Friday and Saturday nights before instead. Full band with Matt Muir, Scott Bricklin, Leeona and Jason Loughlin. We'll celebrate like it's still 2006 (but with a Democratic house).
