I realize it’s been a long time since I’ve updated the site with any sort of, say, relevant info. You know, “big gig coming up!” or, “just recorded this amazing album,” or even “I’m a proud father of a beautiful baby boy.” It’s kind of a shame, because all of those things happened, some of them more than once.
I do keep things flowing a little more regularly on Twitter, but like all things social, media included, I’m awkward at best. So here’s a super-quick recap of all sorts of fun things I never took the time to write about and probably should have:
A few days at the Pearl with the super-talented songwriter Chris Koza…a few nights at the James Hill Library for a number of Realphonic radio shows—including a “reunion” show with my good friend Teddy Morgan, in whose Barrio East studio I recorded a few songs with the beautiful (and also super-talented, can we just say everyone I’m writing about is super-talented?) Lily Costner…a great album with Lucy Michelle, where I got to witness firsthand the creative whirlwind of the John Munson/Chan Poling production team, whose band the New Standards I’ve been having fun playing with…the beginnings of a new record with my friend Carl Broemel, who along with bandmate Bo Koster is all over Neko Case’s amazing new record, who joined us over at Wits where we completely shredded public radio with Iron Maiden’s “Number of the Beast.”
There’s a lot more that I could write about, but to be honest it all gets a little hazy as the most amazing thing that’s happened to me recently was the birth of my son seven months ago. Life as a father has been exciting, challenging, exhausting, and inspiring. (But mostly exhausting.)
