Hello again! I am quietly and patiently making my way through yet another winter in a location much farther outside the solar declination than I ever thought I'd be. I'm making it. Slowly but surely. In the meantime, I'm counting down the hours till I hop on a plane bound for Austin, Texas. This Valentine's will be a week full of family and friends, marathon running, and introducing Riccardo to all things Texas.
I'll be sure to take lots of photos to post. Also, I'm thrilled to announce that I will be playing at The Domain in Austin this Saturday. Perhaps I can even convince Jonathan to join me up on stage. Oh, the return of Baylen! If you're in the area (Jillian, Mack, i'm looking at you) I do hope you will be sure to join us.
I've been listening to one of my childhood favorites lately. Dad, thank you for introducing me to James Taylor at such a young age. I can't imagine what music would be like without him. The video below is one of my all time favorites.
*Shrills of excitement. Enjoy!
I realize that it's been nearly a month since my return, but I'm finally getting around to posting pictures from my time home for the holidays. Florida was absolutely magical. It was just the dose of sunshine, loving smiles, Southern hospitality, and family that I've been missing. The photos above are but only a slice of all the joy that was felt. Anytime I'm surrounded by the folks above is a good time for sure. I can't wait to head back to The South soon to see my sisters and the little guy in the video below.
Papa, I'm praying you heal nice and quickly, now ya hear? I've been listening to your CD and am already planning our next concert together! It's going to be some kind of special!!
So much love. Enjoy!
I'm looking forward to this evening. I'll be opening up for a band of friendly and talented folks, Graftician. We'll be down on Main Street at Skinny Fat Jack's. It's $8 at the door and the show starts at 9:00 pm. I hope to see your smiling faces there.
In other musical news, earlier this week I heard one of my favorite Gulf Coast bands on World Cafe. It's so wonderful to hear The Revivalists receiving the attention they deserve.
Happy Friday. Enjoy!
While in town last week I stopped over in Orange Beach and met up with the friendly fellas of Live at Dave's. It was a wonderful time singing tunes and chatting with Henry and Johnny. I must admit I'm not a seasoned interviewee, but I reckon it's all a learning process for the next time.
I'm so happy to share with you the podcast below which includes songs both old and new.
Happy Tuesday. Enjoy!
ps: thank you Jeff for setting this up! Love you (!!)
