If you have been wondering why you haven’t been seeing me playing a ton of shows like normal, I woke up one day and realized that I had about five albums worth of really good material that I haven’t shared with you.

It’s time to start laying that down and getting you some new music.

Recording sessions have begun for a very ambitious project that I will tell you about in the coming weeks!  Stay tuned and thanks so much for continuing to dig my music and follow what is happening in my little musical world.

Here’s one of the songs on the docket for the new record(s)
