Just wanted to do a little update about what's happening currently with my music...
Writing new songs! – I realized I already have about five songs written for album two!! Nothing finished enough to release officially yet, but I've been building a lot of new material up, and I LOVE WRITING SO MUCH! After all the tours this summer and fall, it definitely feels good to be back in Austin to hang, write for a bit, then hit the road again as soon as I'm done. :)
Making a music video! – Started to put together a music video with my friend Rob from Onion Creek Productions. The ball is rolling, but there's much to do, so I'll be sure to update as things keep happening!
Opening for SPHYNX in Austin on November 21st! – big ol' party on the horizon! I'll be opening for Sphynx at Cheer Up Charlies on November 21st!! Also playing with Children of Pop, The Beans, and Ronnie Heart – Doors at 8p, $5
Opening for Gardens & Villa at 502 Bar in San Antonio on November 7th! – Get ready for another crazy night at 502 Bar! Doors at 9pm, info/tickets do210.com/events/2014/11/7/gardens-villa
Other than that, I've made a couple equipment upgrades, and I'm suuuuuper stoked to show y'all the new material!
After 4000 miles and a bunch of good story-making, the 2014 Summer Tour has come to an end! Thanks to all who partied, and thanks to all who made it happen.
Playing in San Antonio with Black Taxi, playing the Yes, Indeed! fest in Houston, and another Florida tour late September/early October which includes the Plan B Block Party 2014 in Tampa, FL!

Here's a wild take of the new song, "I'm Not Afraid Anymore", on BalconyTV Austin! Performed June 8th, 2014. Check it out:
I have a new song that I've been writing lately, and I recently had a songwriting idea that I hope fans can help me out with. The new song is called, "Nothing But Freedom Ahead", and it has a big group-vocal part in it.
As I was driving from New York to Ottawa on a recent tour, I had the idea of fans recording themselves singing the line, "Nothing But Freedom Ahead", then sending me the recording so I could drop it into my new song to create the group vocal.
Wanna be in the new song? I've recorded myself singing the line here:
Take a listen to the line, and record yourself! You can use a computer, phone, iPad, laptop, etc., and send your clip(s) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
