Summer’s been absolutely fantastic. I’ve been able get into a bit of a rhythm with life, which has been nice and allowed me more free time to enjoy family, friends and of course, music. I’ve been able to experience ZZ Top and Robert Randolph and the Family Band live and am looking forward to Gov’t Mule this Saturday. Watching all of these fantastic musicians has done nothing but further my desire to get back out and play some shows.
With the Summer closing and Fall right around the corner, I’ve directed my attention to writing and recording the next Trio album as well as booking shows. Writing for me has always been quick and in spurts, so I hope to hit a creative streak and pump out some tunes in a short amount of time. I’ve also been able to acquire some nice microphones (Blue makes ridiculously fantastic mics) that will hopefully improve the quality of my recordings. I’m pretty excited with how things have gone so far. The first single, “Doctor’s Orders”, has already been sent off to Apple Music, Spotify and others for approval. It should go live in the next day or so.
Booking has begun as I’m starting to get a Fall/Winter 2016 Press Kit together and sent out to various venues around Dayton. I hope to get a handful of shows nailed down and announced within the next month or so. I miss playing for crowds and definitely look forward to getting back to it here shortly. As always, if you’re interested in me playing your venue or a venue you like, let me know or give them a referral. I hope to see you guys out in the music scene soon!
