Thanks much for visiting the site and for listening.

-WE ARE MOVING... Our family will be heading to Sewanee, TN where my wife, Claire, will be entering Seminary as a postulant for the Episcopal Church. Two kids, Two Beagles, Two Guitars, Two Bedrooms, One Bath... Talk about family bonding... I am anxious to reconnect with friends in Nashville and look forward to performing in the Southeast again.

-This summer we celebrated the 11th season of the San Angelo Concert Series. Over the past 11 years we have featured over 100 artists and paid them over $60,000 for their performances! Additionally, Claire has baked well over 3,000 cookies and over 2,800 brownies... Thanks to all who have attended this special concert. We are working on a committee to continue the series in my absence (stay tuned)

-The new album (Loop That Big) is in post-production as we speak. I can't wait to share it with you! I co-produced it with engineer, Gary Laney (formerly Nashville Engineer of the year ~Sound Emporium~ REM, Don WIlliams, Allan Jackson, Trisha Yearwood, and many others). Most of the recording occurred in the front room of our old home in San Angelo. Watch for an autumn/winter 2014 release.

-I will be touring to support the new record (something I have not done for a few years while we have been raising the boys). If you would like to help out with booking and promotions please use the contact page.
