Gonna be doing a set at the BLOCK ISLAND MUSIC FESTIVAL on June 16.. more shows to be announced very soon!
Stay tuned for info about the new album, ‘Worry Not’, to be released on Altco Records..
I’m very happy to announce the release of a new 7 inch single, ‘Bring Her Back Home’ b/w ‘L.B.C‘. It’s a limited run of vinyl, a turn towards the traditional, and step foward into studio sound, courtesy of Alan Weatherhead who played and produced with me this time around.
You can order a copy here, and if you’re in NY, you can pick one up at the Record Release Party in Brooklyn, Sat March 28th at The Fifth Estate.
I’ll be playing the new songs, with special guest Dusty Brown opening up the show.
If you’re not the turntable type, there’s download codes in each jacket with links to digital files, so you can listen on the device of your choice.
More live dates and media blitz to come.
Hope to see you soon,
