Hi everyone -

Happy holidays! Seems like a weird thing to say on a 70 degree day here in December. But I'm not complaining!

Lots to share: First off, my new CD, Ordinary Cats will be released on February 8 with a CD release show at Casbah in downtown Durham. I'll be joined onstage by some special guests so we can try to recreate a bunch of the CD live for you -- lots of new songs! Look for T-shirts and bumper stickers this time around, too. I will be sending out pre-release copies to those of you who have been patiently awaiting Kickstarter reward copies, perhaps as early as this month. In January, I'll start posting some of the new songs streaming on my reverbnation page, and we will have a new video - produced by my pal Eddie Huffman - going online in January, too.

In the meantime, I'll be sticking close to home for a couple of months (unless I travel to Florida for a week at the end of this month) while we get our business stuff in order. But I do have a few shows around the Triangle. There are a few seats still available for a house concert I am playing with FJ on Dec. 13 here in Durham at the home of Richard Low and Anne Almond. Email Richard at to reserve a spot and get directions.

I will be sitting in with Greg Humphreys at The Lincoln Theater in Raleigh on Dec 22 as part of his going away party. My buddy Greg has found love and is moving up to NYC to be with his sweetie. I'll miss having him around for impromptu jam sessions on the porch!

If you are making new year's resolutions about guitar lessons - shoot me an email. I can teach you via skype if you are out of town, or here at my house if you are in town. I am also offering some weekend guitar workshops in January on acoustic blues, songwriting, and jamming with other people. Please email me for more details!

And last, but not least  -- please think about buying a CD of mine to share with a friend or relative for the holidays this year! Giving the gift of independent music is great for everyone involved. You can find all my stuff at or go straight to CDbaby, iTunes, or Amazon. 

I hope to see you all soon.


Have a great holiday season!
