Recording update

I have been in the studio recording some new songs. I’ve started with “Lucky” and “Sycamore”. I will release them digitally and, eventually, I will release a 4-5 song EP. I’m recording at Cedar Fever Studios just outside of Austin, TX. It’s located on a farm and has the best energy. Guitarist extraordinaire Daniel David is co-producing with me, as well as playing guitar and bass. The great Kevin hall is playing some of the best drum tracks I’ve heard and I am singing lead and background vocals. Rich Maus is also doing a great job engineering the project. Plus, we’ve have Keyboardist Jamie Hilboldt sending  us some great Keyboard and synth sounds.

I will send out an announcement when they are released.

Performing New Song “Sycamore” Live At Carousel Lounge

I had a great time this past Saturday performing an acoustic set at the Carousel Lounge in Austin. It has been there “forever” with a circus theme. I opened for Fosskit No 5, Flat Stanley and The Ashbury Keys. Fun was had by all!

Here is my opening song called Sycamore. I have not recorded it yet. Hopefully soon!
