If Family Feud put the top ten answers on the board of "things people say when tragedy strikes", the number one answer would undoubtedly be- "I wish there were something I could do." 

Well if you're one of those people, this is your lucky day! Because this time you can help. 

I've often said during live shows when I introduce the song "August Day", that northern New Mexico is the source of everything good that has ever happened to me in my life, and it's the truth. That stretch of the Sangre De Christo…

New EP "New Mexico Dirt" will release January 9th 


As you know from the previous post here, the new EP "New Mexico Dirt" has been underway for quite some time.  I'm happy to report, it's all wrapped up!  My initial idea was to record where I was writing, in the cabin at the foot of the Sangres.  Unfortunately that didn't quite go as planned.  I am happy to report however, that the ultimate goal was accomplished, and the result is nothing less than what I'd hoped for.  

All the songs were written from October 23rd to November 3rd, in Cimarron, NM…Read more

New EP New Mexico Dirt now underway... 

Greetings and salutations, people of Earth! Sorry for the radio silence. It's been a whacky bunch of months. I did a whole tour of Route 66 with my good friends Jennifer Westwood and the Handsome Devils; and then I did a tour of Italy with Americana goddess extraordinaire, Mary Cutrufello.

In other words, shit happens.

Winter tour is wrapped up, Spring/Summer about to launch! 

What can I say about the winter tour? There were some absolutely fantastic shows, a whole lot of wonderful people, a good deal of laughter, and some very fine times. There were also a ton of sub-zero days, more than a month without seeing the sun, some food poisoning, a van stuck in the ice, a van broken down, and the witnessing of some truly gruesome highway goings on. In short, I'm really glad I did it, and I'm really glad it's over. Onward toward what can only be a glorious spring and summer schedule!

On the road again... 

It's been great to have some time off, but it's that time again!  2015 tour kicks off this weekend in Wichita, KS at The Elbow Room!  The last show for 2014 was December 13th, and I am more than ready to get back to it.  There have been a ton of dates confirmed, and more coming in all the time.  Lots of great stuff happening this year.  Not only will I be doing a lot of touring on my own again, but you'll have the chance to see me out on the road with my dear friend Mary Cutrufello, as well as with my…Read more
