Hi. Thanks for the visit. Thought I'd share what all is going on in a little post. Got some new music, some tour dates to announce, and a cool t-shirt that would look really good on you. ;)
NEW MUSIC: In October I released an EP of songs titled Love That'll Last Forever. The EP features three songs from my upcoming album, Up The Ridge. You can check it out on iTunes and/or Spotify and on most other digital markets.
Check out this blog post from No Country For New Nashville to get the backstory on the track "Sue in Blue."
NEW TOUR DATES: I've got a handful of dates coming up to finish out 2015 that I am really excited about. Looking forward to a hometown show next week followed by some cool dates elsewhere. In December I will be touring up the East Coast as the support for my friends in Kopecky and Escondido.

NEW MERCHANDISE: I have these Dream Country T-shirts for sale. They are extremely good-looking and comfortable. Softer than a baby lamb and dreamier than a bed of clouds. Design inspired by the vision we had to describe the sound we were chasing while in the studio (the Glass Onion) recording Up The Ridge. The vision for the sound was the pursuit of a cinematic sunset while driving down a country highway. We called this vision Dream Country.
$25 online includes shipping within the US. Hand-drawn design by my friend Sam at Brothers Design Company.
