The Next Adventure...
This summer has been filled with lovely festivals, star gazing, farming in the hot sun, late-night music jams, new friends, old friends, and so much more! I am excited to announce that in September I will be touring down the west coast with non-other-than Tommy Alexander. From hence forth this tour will be known as The Little West Coast Getaway Tour! I will be opening for Tommy as a Soulo act and also I will be coming out of retirement and joining Tommy as a drummer! This is the first band I've joined on drums since TallGrass GetDown's hiatus. This is also uncharted territory for me and my touring! We will be joined by some dear friends: former "TallGrasser" Ian Wade (bass) and Alanna Grace Flynn of Quiet Lion (vocals). I am honored to, once again, join with Mr. Alexander and start the next adventure. The tour dates are as follows:
- 8/25 | The Goodfoot*** [Portland, OR]
- 9/12 | Sam Bond's Garage*** [Eugene, OR]
- 9/14 | Applegate River Lodge*** [Applegate, OR]
- 9/16 | The Mint [Los Angeles, CA]
- 9/18 | Watermark*** [Ventura, CA]
- 9/19 | SoHo*** [Santa Barbara, CA]
- 9/20 | Bocci's Bar*** [Santa Cruz, CA]
- 9/22 | Amnesia*** [San Francisco, CA]
- 9/29 | Brickroom Gathering House*** [Ashland, OR]

While we are talking about Tommy Alexander, I am also exciting to announce I will be releasing my new album 'Django Soulo' on Su Casa Records (same label as Tommy's album 'Old News'). I know Tommy is working hard on his new album and so am I. I am having a blast recording at the former studio of legendary Steve Miller (of Steve Miller Band). Will Tommy and I be releasing our albums simultaneously? Only time will tell...
I will leave you all with a fresh new video that was shot on location in Plainfield, Vermont at Ben Youngbaer's newly completed Setting Sun Teahut. Ben (Purple Duck Pictures) has filmed many of my live videos and I think you'll enjoy this one as well. It's raw and uncut just like the tea poured at Setting Sun!
