Just back from a great four day holiday weekend of music, recording and family time in Iowa City. Hard to believe it’s December already!

The benefit show at Englert Theatre with Pieta Brown & Bo Ramsey was a ball. Such great musicians with so much soul.

I also spent a lot of time with old friend John Svec at Minstrel Studio cutting a few more new songs and everyone seemed happy with the results. Great surprise guest appearances by Marty Letz on pedal steel and Radoslav Lorkovic on organ. And if the stars line up right, Pieta Brown is going to lend some pretty vocals to the mix. So album release #7 is slowly moving forward. In my ideal world, I would release a limited edition double vinyl album with crazy gorgeous artwork. Album #1 would be my brand new songs. And Album #2 would be my bonus “TV Gold” television song collection. I have only released my music in CD format, so I’m guessing I will also need to have a digital option too. No real hurry…but good to be making musical progress.

Guess it’s time to settle in for Winter now here in Indy. Have some travel to Portland, New Orleans and Mexico coming up…but mostly going to hunker down and get to the mixing, mastering and nitty gritty album work. My new music should be flying out into the world sometime in 2014.

And if you need holiday gifts, just click the discography button on the right and buy one or five of my CD’s for stocking stuffers!

Thanks for checking in and have a great holiday season! You can also find me sporadically on facebook, twitter, and instagram.
