Enjoying the summer but not the news, I'm with Ringo - "Peace and Love" folks Peace and Love.
I'm having the great opportunity of spending some extended time in LA working on a few projects and getting re-acquanted with many old friends and meeting new ones. Real nice to return to where I called home for many years to re-discover things with a whole new POV. Stay tuned.
The great drummer and engineer, Shawn Norris, just put a playlist together of a bunch of songs he's played on by a great bunch of artists, so nice to be a part of that gang - thanks Shawn. Shawn was in I See Hawks In LA, a top favorite band of mine over 10 years ago and was lucky enough to get him to drum, engineer and mix my recent album. Check out who he plays with!
Great show I'm really looking forward to this Friday (April 19), trading sets with the amazing Jonathan Best at Mark's Beer Garden on the wonderful Jim Sobo's Howling Coyotes tour. I just finished a podcast on the hilariously talented Matt Santos' Mile High Show, this time on Jim's Howling Coyote Radio hour. As usual hilarity and passion ensued and both of us performed a couple songs each - check it out!
It's been a "keep my head down" and get through the winter mode around here - we had more snow in the mountains of Arizona than in recorded history! Meanwhile I'm getting back into promo-mode of the album after a successful run in the UK and Europe, and re-focusing back here on the USA, stay tuned and have a cup of coffee!
