Happy May, my friends. The storms are alive and well here in North Texas. This is my favorite time of year (along with autumn). I just thought I’d take the time and give you folks an update on what is going on in my world.
A few nights ago Kevin (keyboards/vocals) and I got to play a show at the historic Sons of Hermann Hall in Dallas, Texas supporting Elvis Perkins (amazing!). Such a lovely venue and a wonderful crowd. Shortly after our set ended we headed over to the Vagabond for Salim Nourallah’s open mic night to play another set. We Made some new fans and promoted my upcoming appearance there in a few weeks (see below). There is a really wonderful and beautiful scene happening at the Vagabond on Tuesday nights. If you’re a songwriter in the area, you should make plans to be there and share your work with us.
It felt good to get back on stage in a solo acoustic capacity. For the past couple of months we have been doing the full rock band thing and I have loved every minute of it. However, it’s nice to get back to basics sometimes, and that is the plan for a majority of the shows this summer. We’ll bring back the rock the band in the fall and winter.
My show schedule is pretty full this summer. Below are the dates. I hope you folks can make it out to some, it’s always nice to see familiar faces.

Well…. that’s all I got for now. After a long and grueling spring semester, I’m going to enjoy this summer a lot. It feels good to finally realize that I can actually see the finish line… and it is near. More on that in another blog, I suppose.
