Hey you guys!
It is Feb 1 so what better day to tell you about all of the exciting things I have in store this month?! I took a brief hiatus from gigging in December and January but now I’m back and ready for action. Before I give you a bunch of show dates, though, an update on THE RECORD! It is currently being mixed in Asheville and my producer Andrew expects to be done with mixing by this Friday (Feb 4). Then it’ll be a few weeks before we get it in to be mastered, and then a month or so after that I will have the physical CDs in my hands and be able to mail them to all my Kickstarter supporters. However, the official album release date and show will not be until late April/early May so that I have time to promote before the show and also get it in online stores like iTunes and Amazon.
In other news, I have been in cahoots with a film producer who is going to help me shoot a professional video for “The Weathermaker” that will come out right around the same time as the CD. More details on that to come! Now for the dates –
Thursday, Feb. 3 – solo show at MOTORCO Music Hall, Durham, 9 – 9:45 pm (charity event). More info here. Headliner is YAHZARAH, critically acclaimed vocalist, Grammy-nominated member of The Foreign Exchange, and former background singer for Erykah Badu. $6 cover!
Tuesday, Feb. 8 – RADIO show with Cameron Alworth on 103.5 WCOM in Chapel Hill/Carrboro, 5-6:30 pm, We’re just gonna be chattin’ and playin’ some songs. You can stream it live at http://wcomfm.org/
Thursday, Feb. 10 – show at THE CAVE, sharing the bill with two really awesome bands – Now You See Them from Asheville and Wind & Willow from Raleigh. James Hines will be playing bass with me and Sabina Barton will be doing her usual fantastic combination of keys, guitar, and singing.
