Anyone who knows me knows that one of my absolute favorite records that came out in 2011 is Little Scream’s album The Golden Record (in fact, I am listening to it while I type this). So it is with the absolute utmost pleasure that I tell you that I am going to be playing a few shows with them at the end of November on the east coast! I’ll be playing solo. It’s gonna rule.
We’re hitting Washington, DC, Philadelphia, PA and Brooklyn NY. All dates and info are below and on my tour page. See you out there!
I’ve recently started playing bass in Sharon Van Etten’s band! If you haven’t heard Sharon yet, I strongly suggest you check her out. She’s a truly amazing person that writes incredibly beautiful songs. We’re heading out on tour starting on September 8th! You can see all of her dates on her website and her Myspace page.
Come check us out and say hi!
Here’s a video of me playing Elizabeth Cotten’s song, “Oh Babe, It Ain’t No Lie”, on tour in February, 2010.
AOL is streaming my entire new album, The Lucky Ones, on their site today, March 30th! You can check it out by clicking here: http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/#/6!
The record is out today as well! Pick up a copy!
Also, if you’re in NYC, I’m playing at The Mercury Lounge tonight at 7:30 with very special guest Doug Gillard (ex-Guided by Voices). Mr. Gillard is going to open and then I’m playing with full band and then Doug is going to join us for a few. It’s going to be an amazing night.
See you there!
Moments after this photo was taken, a cop told me that all major highways were closed and I had to get off the highway at the next exit 10 miles down the road. That snowplow and dark road you see in the picture stopped here at this jack knifed truck and so it was a long slow drive trying to get to the next exit and find a hotel.
I hate to cancel a show, but it is physically impossible to get to Pittsburgh for the show at Howlers tonight. I’m bummed as I was really looking forward to the show. They’re telling me tomorrow will be clearer, so I’m hunkered down in Bethlehem, PA, playing guitar and waiting this storm out. I’ll kick it back up again tomorrow in Columbus at The Treehouse!
I’m hitting the road starting February 10th. All dates can be found on the TOURS page or below. I have some new songs I’ll be playing and and other surprises, plus these completely solo tours don’t happen too often so definitely come out when I’m in your town! Here’s a little pre-tour interview I did with Katie Darby, check it out HERE. We’ll see you out on the road!
My and the band’s cameo was short and sweet last during the HBO 24-7: Jimmie Johnson – The Road to Daytona, but it was awesome all around. The show is amazing and gives some serious background into the awesomeness that is NASCAR and the Johnsons, two of the best people I’ve ever known.
Holy mole, tour starts in two weeks! I’m excited to get back on the road. February is all solo shows, from here to Des Moines and down to the Carolinas. I’ve got some special secrets I’ll be doing along the way so definitely come on out.
