March 2016

Hello again music lovers,

It’s a great pleasure to be back in touch with you. It’s been a long time and I have a lot of great things to share.

I have a new acoustic record called Flying Solo which is coming out this week, I am headed to Texas and then Europe for some CD release tours and I have been playing a ton of music and producing some great records in Los Angeles.

Flying Solo

The new record is made up of 12 songs that are mostly just voice and acoustic guitar.

It has 6 new songs recorded in my home studio, The Den, and 6 live recordings culled from concerts and radio station visits from the last few years. One song, which was recorded live in Finland, is a solo mandolin and vocal version of ‘Steady At The Wheel’ which I wrote back when I was touring with  Shooter Jennings and was #1 on Texas radio for 6 weeks.

Some of the songs were co-written with my friends at home in the L.A. country-rock scene (Kirsten Proffit of Calico, David Serby, Bobby Joyner, Nicole Gordon), in Austin (Tony Scalzo of Fastball, Gordy Quist of the Band of Heathens) and in Nashville (Chris Tompkins). One of the guest musicians is an amazing guitarist I play with when I tour in Finland named Tommi Viksten.

Flying Solo is finally the acoustic record which accurately captures my live solo shows when I tour solo with just my suitcase and guitar.

It is available here:  and at my live shows. It’ll be up on iTunes and other sites in the next week or so.

I have also really been hitting my stride in my home studio producing a few really great records in this last year.

I just finished co-producing an EP with AJ Hobbs. AJ is a great old school country singer and songwriter. He will also be going to Texas this month and we will be doing a bunch of shows together. His EP, The Den Sessions, is available on his website and at his live shows.

Nate Smith is a great singer songwriter and rock musician from Los Angeles. His debut record, Around and Around features some truly soulful singing and some more rocking Neil Young and Crazy Horse style rock and roll as well as some stunningly beautiful and spacious ballads.

Creekwood is a great band from Orange Country. We met a few years ago and they brought me in to produce their record. Creekwood are a very talented band that wanted to create a classic and clean singer songwriter meets country sound featuring their great harmony singing and virtuosic fiddle and banjo players. Their record, 2000 Miles West, came out a few months ago.


Here is some info on 2 Recordings that are almost done…..

Robin Wiley is another great singer and songwriter I have been working with. Robin has been living in Austin so our writing and recording sessions have been spread out over time whenever one of us is in each other’s home city. We did some great sessions in Austin and L.A and the EP is finally almost ready.

Richie Allbright is a killer old shcool country singer and songwriter from the Corpus Christi area. Through mutual friends we met and did some shows together. Richie flew out to L.A. where we recorded for a week a few months back. We are now in the mixing stages and about to complete the record.

Thanks again,
