While, like so many others, I'm at home and jobless during this pandemic, how about a big ol $5 sale on all of my t-shirts, and even vinyl? Stay safe out there, and check the Bandcamp page for more info.
My good buddy Sim Williams and I did a cover version of the HWM song, "Driving Home". I'm pretty stoked how it turned out. I played guitar and sang the verses, Sim played steel guitar and sang the choruses.
This year was pretty wild. I played more shows than ever before. I got to do some insane festivals like Punk Rock Bowling (Vegas) and Fest 18 (Gainesville, FL). We also released my first solo album this year, (Volume 1) on a few formats including pretty teal vinyl, and toured Europe for the first time. Thanks to everyone who's taken a chance on me these past 12 months. It was one for the ages.
My good palls in Blind Mountain Holler (San Diego, CA) and I decided to record some covers of each other's songs. We will soon put them out on a split EP (CD & Digital). It comes out officially in mid December, or you can pick up a copy at one of the release shows:
12/06 Los Angeles, CA @ The Love Song (FB Event) [w/ Derik Envy]
12/13 San Diego, CA @ Tower Bar (FB Event) [w/ Paul Luc, Sammy Key, Chad Price, Dead Ven]
I'm finally going to bring the "Vol. 1" record out to the Midwest and South this Fall, and tour dates start right about now! The first run of shows (St. Louis to Gainesville) is with my buddy Paige Beller. The rest of the shows listed are with my sibling Alex's band, Typesetter. This should be a great couple of weeks spending time with wonderful people in some of the sweetest cities. If you're out that way, I hope to see you.
I'm very excited to announce that directly following the tour with Paige Beller, I'll be continuing to to play some Southern dates with my friends and sibling's band, Typesetter. Hitting up some places where I've never played solo, and finishing it off with a show at Iron Fest in Newport, KY.
