October in Europe – back on the road and in the studio

Hello friends,
I hope you are all doing well.
Night Owl, has been out almost 9 months now. It made the US Americana Radio Chart (#34) and the Euroamericana Chart (#15) and we got a really great response. I hope you are as happy with the results as I am. Thanks again for the help – and making it possible.

And I am excited to say I am leaving today for another tour of Europe – Finland, Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands. I am actually sitting at LAX now waiting to get on my flight to Amsterdam.

Here are my shows:

10/3 Thu – Holzthaleben, DE – Scheutzenhaus
10/4 Fri – Wilhelmshaven, DE – Bistro Galerie / The Liner
10/5 Sat – Soest, DE – Pier 99
10/6 Sun – Walsoorden, NL – Cultuurpaviljoen De Perk – 3-6pm
10/7 Mon – Rotterdam, NL – RTL7 Television show hosted by Johan Derksen
10/10 Thu – Helsinki, FI –  Golden Classics Club
10/11 Fri – Veendam, NL – Blueprint Radio – live radio broadcast from the Van Beresteyn Theater 5-7
10/12 Sat – Vlaardingen, NL – Partycentrum De Zaak – 8:30-10:30
10/13 Sun – Rotterdam, NL – Sijf – 5:30-8:30
10/14 Mon – Rotterdam, NL – Radio RTV Rijnmond – Live Uit Lloyd with Ronald van Oudheusden

10/19 Sat – Vetlanda, SE – Old Barn Corner
10/20 Sun – Växjö, SE – Kafe Deluxe
10/21 Mon – Gothenburg, SE – Soulstore

Then in November I will be back in L.A. doing a Sunday night residency at a great bar downtown called Villains and hopefully producing a few records.
And from December 6-15 I will be back in TX doing another tour there.

I have also just started recording the next record! It is tentatively called ‘Resonator’. I will keep you posted and get some mp3s posted soon. I have done a few sessions in L.A. and Nashville and will be recording with my bands in Finland and in Texas on these next few tours. This next album will be even more of a ‘recorded on the road’ album than Night Owl and I am very excited about it.

Here are some great new Interviews/Performance videos from a Live-in-the-Studio session we did called the Blackwing Sessions. This is some of the highest quality stuff I have ever done. I hope you enjoy it. And this may become a Ted DVD. More news on this soon……

New recording – Ted and Ted Help Support the Red Cross of Oklahoma
I recorded the classic song ‘Tulsa Time’ with an old friend of mine Ted Wulfers (www.tedwulfers.com). We are donating 100% of the proceeds to The Oklahoma Red Cross. Even though it’s not in the news anymore, the people of OK could still use your help and are still dealing with a lot of chaos and tragedy. I have been through Oklahoma many times and have some great friends in the Oklahoma City area which was hit so hard by the tornadoes. Please check it out at http://www.tedandted.bandcamp.com/

In other news, I am now in the process of building a great home studio. I will post pictures of the construction soon and I am excited to get some music made right at home. I will be back in the studio finishing up a few records I will be producing in the next few months too. One is for the great L.A, singer and songwriter Funky Jenn Gibbons. I will also be working on a track for the great British singer/songwriter Graeme Clark and I will continue working on my next record too. Very exciting.

Here are some great new Interviews/Performance videos from a Live-in-the-Studio session we did called the Blackwing Sessions. This is some of the highest quality stuff I have ever done. I hope you enjoy it. And this may become a Ted DVD. More news on this soon……
