It always takes me a week or so to really feel like it’s the new year. I guess I am a slow poke in that regard, and I always internally cringe at the “new year new you!” advertising that comes at us from all directions. BUT…I am a sucker for a new year, I really […]

Hello from Sweden!

27, Nov 2015

We made it! The Austin airport is kind in that Brennen Leigh and Noel McKay were playing the Saxon stage so we were serenaded by friends as we waited, and then we met Natalie Maines who was walking by. Well, Susan of course knows Natalie. I had never met a Dixie Chick before. Thank you, […]

Hey it’s Fall

8, Oct 2015

Well, it’s not Fall in Texas yet because it’s still NINETY DEGREES (seriously, I am now on some sort of countdown plan to live in a place with Real Fall, except I will return to Texas to avoid Real Winter). It’s been busy since we got back from tour, which…for some reason I thought it’d […]

Well, on Monday…that’s when I actually leave on a jet plane. This happens Tuesday! I hope to meet everyone in Los Angeles. All 64 billion of you (rough estimate).

What a Band

12, Sep 2014

We had a great time at the Strange Brew CD release! Thank you Billy, Christa, Emily, Katie, Susan, and Anna for making me sound good. It was a mighty big, mighty good band!

Red River Joy

1, Feb 2014

We just got home from the 3rd Annual Texas Red’s Red River Songwriters’ Festival (yes, that is a long title) in Red River, NM. We were lucky to be included on the first go around in 2011, and now in year three it’s a growing festival and one of the best times of the year! […]

I feel the need to blog more before it is 2014. Uh… I had the joy of spending the week before Christmas with the Traveling Red River Songwriters’ Tour…with the amazing Drew Kennedy, Walt Wilkins, Kelley Mickwee, Brandy Zdan, Josh Grider, and SusanG. We all gather for the Red River Songwriters’ Festival in January in […]

Best Week Ever

11, Nov 2013

Whew. I have to admit, I’m gonna sleep a lot tonight. It’s been a whirlwind of adventure these past two weeks, with recording the new album, the Kickstarter, playing Rice Festival, and a bonus encounter with a hero of mine all wrapped into these past few days. I need a nap, but a satisfied, happy […]

The Band Sandwich

19, Aug 2013

A dispatch from Team Santana I feel like I’ve had enough distance from this to post about it.  This is about a venue that I’m not going to name because I’m not out to stir up bad publicity, just tell a story (but if you see me in person and ask, I might tell you […]

I just got back from a 10 day jaunt through the Southeast with Susan Gibson, troubadour and driver extraordinaire. We had some house concerts, some venue gigs, and a couple of days off in gorgeous Augusta, where our generous hosts FINALLY met my demands and separated the M&M’s for me, because the yellow ones taste […]
