Hello my wonderful friends and backers!
2 weeks left of the Kickstarter!
I come bearing great news. My buddy Jacob Schrodt will be producing the album! I owe a lot to Jacob; he helped me find work when I first moved to town. We played together over the summer in Chris August's band, and he's an incredible drummer and producer. Above all that, he's just a swell guy and a joy to work with! I know the project is in good hands and he'll do a fantastic job.
So what have I been up to? Last night, I went out to see some fellow songwriters play at a venue called The Basement. The Basement is literally the basement of a record store called Grimy's, and it has an old familiar-feeling atmosphere to me. Not that it looks ancient, it just has the warmth of a well-worn and veteranized stage. The performers were excellent, even if a bit inebriated, and they made it look easy.
Unfortunately I'm still trying to get over this cold, but I'm hoping I'll be back to 100% by the time I leave for Texas on the 20th. Oh yeah, I'm going to DFW on the 20th! I'll be busy out there for 2 weeks, playing and recording with my friend Curtis Stephan. I'll also be doing a house concert in Denton. I'm looking forward to some audio-book action over the 12 hour road trips. Any suggestions?
Tonight I've got another gig playing bass with another songwriter friend. Should be fun, but after that I'm going to try to sleep off this congestion!
I want to cook up a special video for you guys before I leave for Tejas. Stay posted! :)
Thanks for all your support, and keep spreading the word!
PS I got a haircut :)
