Hey, Friend,

Pardon my tardiness…

My monthly newsletter’s a little later than usual this time around, but that’s only because I’ve been extraordinarily busy, in the best kind of way. Not only have I been pouring myself into various creative projects, I also fit in a visit to the west coast to celebrate my brother’s 25th wedding anniversary – the first time in nearly a decade all my siblings and my parents have been in the same place at the same time. Prior to that, Eric Bert & I finalized the last of the mixes for House of Ghosts, my new full-length album set to be released on Halloween of this year, and I’ve also been getting things in order to spend a lot more time touring the country and sharing this music in person!

First things first: rest assured, I have no intentions of entirely retiring the motorcycle as a means of touring. In fact, I’ve recently swapped out my beautiful red Triumph Bonneville for a beautiful blue Triumph Bonneville. My former noble steed was named Clyde, so if you have any good name suggestions for Clyde’s successor, please reply and let me know!

Motorcycle touring, however, has its limitations in both seasonal restrictions (let’s face it – it’s not a lot of fun once you reach late fall) and traveling companionship. To remedy those issues, I recently purchased a home-away-from-home, a 24-foot Coachmen Catalina Lite travel trailer. I expect it will rack up more than a few road miles in the coming months and years! (Also yet to be named – any suggestions?)

My first planned tour with the new digs is set for late September & early October – I’ll be sure to let you know the dates as they fall into place.

I’ve also released the last of the four “Almost Like Live” videos which were an attempt to reproduce the experience of attending one of my live performances. This final one is for my song “A Work In Progress”, for which you might have seen a music video in the past months. Click here or the image below to check it out (and please share if you enjoy!), or head to this playlist to watch the entire video EP.

I also have a nice batch of upcoming shows for the remainder of this month:

As always, there’s a chance I might end up picking up a few more shows over the coming weeks, so be sure to like my various social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and keep an eye on the Tour Dates page to make sure you don’t miss anything.

Once again, thank you for taking this journey with me!
