Hey, Friend,

Happy New Year!

We’re less than 2 weeks in to 2018, and already I’ve successfully mis-written the year as 2017 at least a dozen times. I think that’s a new personal record!

Speaking of new records, even though I stayed primarily in North East Ohio during 2017, I played more shows over the course of the year than in any year previous. I’m aiming to keep that momentum going throughout 2018, with new music, new videos, and if plans come together, a new tour or two! If there’s any specific part of the country you’d like me to visit, please write me back to let me know… a friendly couch to crash on and suggestions of nearby venues to play would also be great.

Also on the topic of new records (pun fully intended), I’m excited that recording is completed for my new full-length, House of Ghosts! My target was to have it wrapped up by the end of 2017, and I just barely met that goal – the final vocal track was completed at 7:00 P.M. on December 31! Let it never be said that I don’t like to live dangerously…

That picture you see here is of the project file right after completion. If those screens were a mirror, you’d see a my ugly mug sporting a cheesy, self-satisfied grin, so I thought this would be more appealing.

Just because tracking is complete doesn’t mean that the project is over, though! I still have to prep the tracks to hand off to my co-producer Eric Bertagnolli (he also played the drums on the record) of Eric Bert Audio – if you pop over to his Soundcloud Page, you can catch a first listen to the title track of House of Ghosts… though there might be a few adjustments to the song before it’s officially released – and I’ll be finishing the album art while Eric completes mixing and mastering the record. I’ll be sure to let you know when the official release date has been set!

To make sure that release date isn’t too far in the future, I’ve only taken on a light load of shows this month – just two of’em at the moment:

As always, there’s a chance a few more dates may pop up on my calendar – you can always find all the upcoming shows on my Tour Dates page.

I hope your year is starting off well… Thanks for joining me for another spin around the sun!
