It has sure been a crazy few months!
Finished off December with a couple of really fun gigs with The Taurino Band and moved into the new year with The Daredevil Kid reaching #1 on The Roots Music Report album chart in Canada (all genres) and hitting #2 on their Americana Country chart in the U.S. (Sandwiched in between Justin Townes Earle and Old Crow Medicine Show)
Then it was off to Kansas City for an official showcase at the Folk Alliance International Conference as well as several private showcases with The Bow Valley Folk Club and Breakout West!
Now I am in Austin, Texas, to do a little recording and then hit the stage for a couple more unofficial showcases. I will be at Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos on March 19th at 11pm for the Bill Wence Promotions showcase, then on the 21st I’ll be doing a set at the G&S Bar at 7:30 pm with Andre Moran for John Conquests’ 3rd Coast Music showcase.
I have been able to catch some stellar talent while here in Austin. I have seen in no particular order Walt Wilkins, Dale Watson, James McMurtry, John Dee Graham, Joe Pug, Kevin Welch, Dustin Welch and The Wagoneers. If you don’t know these artists, I suggest you look them up! I plan to see as many acts as possible while I’m here and hope to absorb some of their awesome talent!
Stay tuned for updates on the new recordings and when and how they will become available.
Loving Texas but am anxious to get home!
