Heading to Europe

Heading To Europe

We’ve been to New Zealand and Australia this year, as well as all around the great United States. We’ve met a lot of great new friends!

We’re heading off for a tour of Europe starting in London next week We’ll be coming right back to do Milwaukee and head up to Canada.

 

Christmas Is Here!

Christmas Is Here!

It was a great year, especially the last few months! I personally would like to send out a HUGE thank you to Sir Elton John for his efforts and LOVE for our Leon Russell! I’m so blessed to be a part of this. I’ve met so many wonderful people this year all around these United States… and London. It was surreal to share the stage with Leon plus Elton and his band and the “Chapel Hill Singers” :))

Thanks to everyone who got a copy of “Old News To Me”! My second album is well underway. It will also feature a co-write with the Legendary Leon… and possibly another guest appearance as well.

Again I would like to say to all the fine folks, my family, the universe, Sir Elton and GOD:

THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!

I’m very much looking forward to spending the Holidays with my family and then onto next year.

I’m looking forward to getting back on stage after a couple weeks off. Only two more days until I fly out to LA for two days of rehearsal… then we kick off the tour.

Can’t wait to see Doug Kauer… and my new custom Kauer Banshee guitar. It’s gonna sound great through the Great Dane Heritage 20.

 

Debut Blues Album “Old News To Me”.

Blues Album Debut "Old News To Me".

We’re all getting excited about the upcoming release from Elton John and our Legendary Band Leader Leon Russell… and the performances to come in support of “The Union”. Producer T-Bone Burnett and his band will be playing some of the initial concerts and we’ll be doing some but we’re not sure which ones yet… but we’re getting geared up!

The trip to London was a whole lotta fun! and it wore my ass out. It was some our first time to London so Brandon, Beau and I took a day to see Buckingham Palace and Big Ben and other sites.. we also stopped in at a couple really old Cathedrals. The intricate architecture and beauty is really indescribable.

I stumbled into a music store in Pittsburgh a couple weeks ago and met the DeLeo Brothers from Stone Temple Pilots! Super Nice Fellas!

A few days before that, Keith Richards attended an intimate show on Long Island…!!! That was an electrified performance to say the least. It was a real honor and pleasure to meet him and his manager Jane Rose.

We’re heading back out to Texas this weekend. In support of my debut blues album, “Old News To Me”, I’m opening the show with “The World Class Band” for the second time at Threadgills and for the first time at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels Tx.

I’m a few weeks into recording my second album. It should be available early next year.

 

Honored to open for Leon Russell..

Honored to open for Leon Russell

I was honored to be the warm up act for Leon Russell this past weekend in Austin and San Leon, Tx. It was really a lot of fun to finally perform some of the songs from my album “Old News To Me”, as well as a new one that I co-wrote with Leon that will included on my upcoming second release. I have to send out a big thank you to the great audiences out there in Texas! ..and Thanks to Christine from AustinDaze.com who came out and did a video interview with me.. check it out. I will be opening some more shows coming up but I’m not sure which ones yet. Stay tuned for more updates.
