Been awhile since I put some love into the site, so thought while cruising down the I5 with the Walcotts towards our next show in Portland would be an ideal time :) So stoked to be back on the road with my homies and supporting the new debut album with some great shows down the West Coast! I'm supercharged from an amazing jaunt around Europe over the past month, so keep an eye out for lots of new content and news in the very near future.... ;) In the meantime, check out a few new vids that I added to the media section here. Much love & light!
Time for a quick update from somewhere in Germany! :) Brian Auger's Oblivion Express Tour has been full steam ahead & the shows have been sold out almost every night throughout Europe! Had some great shows in Switzerland before that with Lipbone Redding Trio and just received word that I'll be jetting back to the West Coast (after three months across the pond) immediately after this one for a SUPER FUN string of dates down the coast with my boys The Walcotts (including a show at the freakin' FILLMORE!!). We'll be supporting Chris Stapleton from Nashville who is absolutely blowing up right now...so needless to say, I'm excited!! All great things this year...2015 has been amazing and I'm very blessed :D
Howdy folks! Getting ready for lots more travels & adventures the last half of the year... I will be heading to Europe in August for 3 1/2 months! I'll spend all of August in Nice, France & Monaco playing with the Midnite Mood trio, then meeting up with my buddy Lipbone Redding in Germany in Sept to start a series of shows there & in Switzerland (we will be performing at the "Intervention With Art" exhibit by my good friend and talented artist Jerry Calote in Thun). Finally, I was recently asked by the amazing keyboardist & B3 organ player Brian & son Karma Auger to join their Oblivion Express band for a six-week tour of Europe beginning early Oct.!! Will list all of these dates as they become available, & hopefully will see some friends along the way...
Lots of things solidifying for the rest of the year...gigs, recordings, film work, travel, etc, & I'm very thankful and excited!! For one, my friends & I at Vanntastic Productions have been selected to assist with music supervision for the upcoming feature film 83 Days (Danny Glover, Ted Levine)! Summer tour in the Western U.S., NYC and fall European dates with Lipbone Redding have been announced as well as other shows...stay tuned for more!!
Happy New Year! Lots of great things in store...first show of the year (& for this band) this Sat. at Room 5 with a J. Marie and the Color Different (amazing R&B/Neo-soul!)..also first show with my beautiful new custom Jazz Pro Deluxe bass by Pavel de la Fuente! :D Lotsa firsts ;)
Just got the word I will be flying to Nashville to play two shows with the Walcotts on Nov. 14 & 15 at ACME Feed & Seed :)
Looking very forward to backing up Caitin Rose from Nashville with the Walcotts, for three shows next week in LA & SF, including the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Fest in Golden Gate Park!
I'm REALLY stoked to be flying back to NYC the last week of Oct. to play a big show at Bowery Electric with pop/rock band Lead of Foxes, as well as rehearsals with my band for my upcoming album!
