Hey Friend!

I’m going to try to keep this month’s update short; which is usually what I say write before writing a novella to deliver to your inbox. But for real this time!

Along with playing a full slate of shows, including dates in New Orleans and Nashville, January’s been a month of planning, and of planting seeds. My performance schedule’s starting to fill in for the coming year, with some dates confirmed as far out as August and September; I only have the next two months up on my website’s concert calendar so far, but I’ll be adding a ton of additional dates over the next few weeks.

On top of that, I’ve been back in the studio demoing new songs; one of the new tracks, More Than You Believe You Are, is going to be getting the full treatment over the coming months. We start tracking drums for it this week, a music video is in the works, and I’m targeting March to get all of that out into the world and into your ears and eyes as a new single. I’ve been adding this new song into the set list at recent shows, so if you get a chance to catch me live you’ll get a taste of what’s coming before everyone else!

As for the other new songs, if you head over to my Instagram, you can catch a little in-studio video of how one of those (called Light On) is shaping up. I have 4 or 5 other songs that are just about ready to be extracted from after-hours concert hall that is my brain and rendered in a less ethereal format, and I’ll post more preview clips as that happens.

In addition to forward movement with my own music, it’s been exciting to see how a project my partner Amanda & I hatched while we were in Scotland (in the lobby of a movie theatre, right before watching Spiderman: Far from Home, to be exact) has grown. ListenCLE has now expanded to 8 mood-based playlists clocking in around 6 hours each (think of them as radio stations; put them on shuffle and enjoy) plus several seasonal “mixtapes”. For the first time this month we heard one of these playlists – “Groove” to be specific – playing over the sound system at a local cafe. The plan is for a lot more of that over the coming months!

I’ve got a full slate of shows this month all over the region, including full-band shows (one on Valentine’s Day, no less), a Hello Headrush appearance (on Leap Day, when a fracture in the space-time continuum will create ideal conditions for cross-temporal transmission), and a ton of solo performances. I hope to see you at one!

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. I can’t wait to see what happens during this new decade!
