Happy New Year! 2014

Hey All,
Happy 2014! 2013 was a crazy year that saw me touring an insane amount, to the point that I don’t actually have a home because of how busy I was, a great and sometimes annoying problem to have.
I started off the year recording with my Good Friend Iestyn Polson down in Asheville, NC (at Echo Mountain Recording Studios) for the Lora-Faye Record “Waltzes”. Continued on with a run of Alice Smith & Gabriel Rios shows in town until I Hit the road for a couple months w/ Ghost Beach then directly back out on the road with Alice once again. In the middle of all that Recording a bunch w/ Fences & producer Jaquire King for the upcoming record due out in the spring of this year. After that heading out on the road again with Ghost Beach for a few weeks, coming home and playing some shows with my favorite Peter Bradley Adams. Summer saw me traveling all over Europe with the insanely talented and creative force that is SSION then a ton more Ghost Beach Shows . Late summer saw me reunited with long time friend Russell Manning w/ his project Rush Midnight doing a full US tour supporting the Aussie band Gold Fields (who are now insanely close friends). Unfortunately I had to leave the tour slightly early to realize a dream of mine and work with Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) for a few more songs on the Fences record that we tracked at what was the legendary Reciprocal Studios in Seattle (now Hall of Justice). One more short tour with Alice Smith, with a few of the shows supporting Gary Clark Jr. (one was at the legendary Apollo Theater in harlem) which were a blast.

Crazy Year, and I’m sure this next one is going to be even crazier!

there is some stuff in the works that I’m waiting to tell everyone about. In due time!!

Happy New Year
