Hey Everybody! Thanks for checking in!
BIG NEWS (August 2014)!
I had an amazing summer. Spent a lot of time in Nashville getting some work done, seeing friends and prowling about the summer NAMM. Got to spend quality time with studio hotshots Neal Cappellino (Alison Krauss/Brad Paisley) and Richard Dodd (Tom Petty/Civil Wars) which was very illuminating. Got a lot of shedding and writing in which was amazing. I have 5 upcoming CD projects that need material, including a duo disc with Cindy Scott and the second Organic Trio recording.
The Organic Trio CD Home Remembered is still getting some nice love. Get a copy if you don't have one yet!
Super excited that brilliant records by both Alex Bosworth and Brad Walker are about to drop. Look for them soon. I am very proud of both of these discs, they have everything I wish for in great music: they’re very personal and sincere, they have wonderful compositions, killing players AND stellar sound. Hooray!
Cindy Scott’s new disc, Historia, is out, and she’s also charting hard. Make sure you get a chance to listen to it. Although I am only playing on three tunes, I feel like a big part of this disc, it includes tunes and arrangements by me as well as some of the other things we’ve been working together on since the last record.

Stuff You Can Look Forward To:
That’s all for now,
ps: I started an email list thing a while ago, the big plan being
to send out my news and my gig list about once a month. So far I’ve
sent out exactly one mailing! I swear I will get it together eventually.
So, if you want to take the chance that one day you might get something, click these words.
If, at some point, you become terminally swamped by electronic correspondences
(which at the rate I’m going could never happen!), you can un-sign
up too, the convenient and automatic disconnect link comes with every email!
Also, you have the option of letting me know where you are, so I won't bother
you with gig notices for stuff nowhere near you.
