Happy 2019!!

Posted by Jason Manns (Creator)

hello my friends!!

just a quick note to say happy 2019! fun things in store for this year! I've been working on this project simultaneously with a couple of other projects you may or may not have been aware of, Briana Buckmaster's debut record and Gil McKinney's second album, entitled Christmas, both of which were awesome successes thanks to you!

You'll be happy to know I've got quite a few songs already in progress for this record and I have guests lined up both new and old. ;) I can't wait to share so much more with you about this record, but I'll start with just this. the next guest I'll be working with is Richard Speight, Jr. I figured since we'll be in the studio working on his solo record (recording starts THIS MONTH!!!) I might as well see if he's available to sing a song or two for this Covers IV Friends album. ;) 

speaking of Rich, keep an eye out for a fun little announcement about his record heading your way soon. Let's just say it's a response to popular demand... You'll know what I mean soon! Ok, that's all I got for now, but rest assured, These updates will be happening from here on out! 

Looking forward to seeing you guys soon! If you don't know already, I'll be heading over to Scotland and England for a tour with Paul Carella next month. It's been a really long time since I did an actual tour of England. I've played London and Birmingham quite a bit, but I'll be popping up in a few other cities next month so come on out and see us if you can! for info and ticket links. 

Ok!! Talk to you all soon!

All my best!!
