The few months after the ‘victory lap’ of releasing an album are always a little weird when you’re doing it all on your own. I had a couple things in mind months ago. First off, I knew I wanted to spotlight at least one more song from TRIALS, so I picked “Lifeboat” as a lot… Continue reading 2018.06 |What next?
It has been a really good week for “We Died Laughing”! Last Wednesday, it was included on Jacques Granger’s program Songs From Under the Floorboards on RadioNope.com. Last night, Catrina played it on the Memphis Made program on Rock103 FM. This Thursday, the gang and I will surely be playing it on the Accendo Artist… Continue reading Adventures in Radio
We’ll be pairing up with the Mike Dees Band (Mike doesn’t play out much, so this is an exciting thing!) J.D. and Jason will also be playing short sets beforehand. Also coming very soon is the third single from the not-out-yet-but-I-promise-it-exists album. More on that in a day or so.

TEN SONGS in. Yes, you heard me right. Bashed out the beginnings of four tunes with those lovely gents, and the results are above and beyond my own expectations. I think what really surprised me is how a couple of the songs transformed along the way. “Texas Can’t Have You Back”, which I have long considered… Continue reading XXXVII. Big Exciting Recording Update, In Yr Face!
Stepping back into the studio Thursday to add keys…toy piano, melodica, Rhodes, organ, synthesizer…should be fun. Also pretty sure Jason Pulley will be in there making magic as well. Looking to add some textures to three tunes. Two of the songs are rock songs and will stay straightforward. After that, lead guitars and vocals…then moving… Continue reading XXI. Album Update
Joe Boone with the Memphis Flyer posted about last week’s Otherlands show on the Sing All Kinds blog (link), and had this to say: “Imperial Lanes is a varied mix of pop. It was recorded by Harry Koniditsiotis. ‘A Team of Bumblebees’ has a Manchestery reverberation to it: drony guitars, drums so lush they sound… Continue reading XVIII.
