September 2010: This summer has been HOT and busy! Brandon and I had a great tour to the Mid-Atlantic states in July with wonderful, supportive crowds and lots of fun experiences. The coolest was the Johnstown Bandshell and getting to sing my song "Johsntown, PA"I in the town that inspired it. Here's a link to a local news story about our show there: http://www.fox8tv.com/News/NewsDetails.asp?NewsID=3707 I'm going to post some new articles from the tour in my press section. & pix in the gallery so be sure to check them out. I also headed off to Nashville to meet with Will Kimbrough and make plans for recording my new CD, which we'll be doing in December. I'm very excited about it! I also finished booking my October tour: SC, MD, NJ, CT, VT, MA, PA, VA, here I come! Check my calendar for all info on my upcoming dates.
a very sad note, we received some terrible news last month. Todd Verdin,
who played bass with me all last year, passed away in early August.
Todd was a smart, sweet and talented young man. He was one of the
funniest guys I've ever known and kept us all in stitches. He played
some great gigs with me, including my Americana showcase. We will miss
him greatly. Please keep his parents, brother and sister in your
thoughts and prayers. He was one of a kind.
Here's a video of us playing at the Americana Convention in September. '09 You can really hear Todd's bass good on this track. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGCmKl0r63Y Todd was not just a band member, he was my friend. I hope his spirit is at peace.
