hey friends!!!! as some of you know, i'm on a summer tour of the Great Lakes with Eric Nassau. we're traveling through Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin playing folk music for anyone who will listen. it's been a really really great time so far. yesterday in South Bend, we played 2 gigs, had a recording session, and ended up on the WSBT 5o'clock news!

today is a pretty low key day. it started with eggs n coffee. we had a rehearsal with drummer Joe Nelson in preparation for our show at Red Line Tap tomorrow night. We'll be opening for Sexfist's 7th Anniversary Show w/ special guests: Jeffrey Chesnut (fiddle), James Weigel (Dobro) after practice we all went out to eat Thai food with Kip from Tangleweed (GREAT band!) and his lovely wife, and some other good friends from around the way.

i just posted 4 new songs a couple days ago. i hope you like em. its just little ol' me sitting in my bedroom and with a guitar and a mic. lauren armitage joins me on "dancin in the rain." no overdubs were used on these songs at all. just honest music- warts and all. i'll have these songs in CD form at all my upcoming shows if you'd like a hard copy.

love from the road! if you're in chicago, please hit me up on FB, k? i'd love to see you while i'm in town.

here's a link to our tour if you'd like more info. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=114355308653288
