It was fun to play this old Grand Tetons song at The Mill in Iowa City last month. Miss those guys! Catch me there again on 9/3 with the full band. It's gonna be a hoot for sure!
It is with both excitment and a tinge of sorrow that I announce I am moving back to the great state of Iowa this weekend! I have absolutely loved my time spent here in Nashville, but it is time to go home to the place that brings me a limitless well of inspiration and happiness. I will visit Nashville monthly, so never fret Nashvillians! I am celebrating the return to Iowa with this amazing show on Saturday, 7/2 with my Nashville buddies Sam Lewis and Darrin Bradbury. I look forward to dragging more of my favorite Nashville musicians through the corn fields to create a great relationship between Nashville and Iowa City. Please come hang out if you are in the area. If not, I'll see you down the road very soon. 2016 has some big plans set for it!
About a month ago I had the pleasure of hanging out with my friends who make the web series "House Show" here in East Nashville. I played a new song for them, "Easier," which will be on my new record that is being produced by Ryan Joseph Anderson and I hope to finish recording in April at Flat Black Studios in Lone Tree, IA.
Check it out! I hope you like it!
Just wanted to check in and tell you some great things are happening! First, myself and a killer band are going into the studio to start recording my next full length record! Could not be more excited to share the songs I have been working on since the 10" came out. Very proud of this collection and I can't wait to see what we come up with in the studio.
Second, I will be playing a couple of excellent shows with some good friends surrounding that recording process. They are as follows:
12/17 @ The Hideout in Chicago with Michele McGuire
12/22 @ The Mill in Iowa City with Ryan Joseph Anderson and Michele McGuire
Hope to see you all out there! Tell your friends!
Due to unforseen issues, the date I was scheduled to play the East Nashville Songwriters Club has moved from Sunday, August 2nd to Sunday, September 13th. The show will be FREE and begin at 7:30 at Mad Donna's Loft. Should be a great show featuring Joshua Black Wilkins and Kristina Murray. See you there!
I'd like to thank the incredibly talented Julia Carusillo for the new artwork that you are seeing on the website. Julia and I go wayyyy back. We lived a few houses apart from each other in high school and she's been a great friend and inspiration ever since. Make sure you check out her other work at her website.
It's been a while! I'm super excited to announce that I will be playing at Mission Creek Festival for the sixth consecutive year! This time, I will be at The Englert Theater opening for one of the baddest bands in the land, Shovels & Rope. I can't tell you how pumped I am to see all my friends and family and crank out some jams! Ryan Joseph Anderson will be slangin the guitar for the set as well.
Very excited to be getting back on that dusty trail with Ryan Joseph Anderson next week. Ryan will be fresh off of a European tour that, from pictures at least, seems like it was a very enlightening experience. Our dates are listed below, and details can be found here:
9/23: The Basement's New Faces Nite - Nashville, TN
9/24: Downtown Tavern - Jackson, TN
9/25: Maximum Ames Music Festival - Ames, IA
9/26: The Mill - Iowa City, IA
9/27: Cafe Berlin - Columbia, MO
See you out there!
If you haven't checked it out yet, the amazing folks over at Daytrotter released my second session! I play 3 new songs, that you may or may not have heard live, and a cover of one of my favorite songs about Iowa by one of my favorite Iowans, "Black Iowa Dirt" by William Elliott Whitmore. Check it out at the link in the title.
