Warm wishes for 2019, everyone!
My big long term project for this year is a new solo album. I've been writing bits and pieces for it since the autumn, and now I'm trying to clear some time and space to really sink into the process over the coming months. I have a working title and a vision for the album that is slowly coming into focus, but I'm not quite ready to share that just yet. Mostly because it's still early in the process and things might change.
But I will give you periodic updates! Possibly in video form.
In the meantime, I've got my gig calendar more or less up to date. I'm really excited for Driveway Thriftdwellers' self-titled vinyl release next weekend. This is the first time I've been on vinyl! We'll be at Anodyne Coffee in Milwaukee next Friday, January 18. Details here.
Later in the month, The Civil Engineers will be hitting the road with Wurk for a mini-tour. Hopefully we'll fare better than the poor dude in the poster:
I also just finished a composition for Five Points Jazz Collective called Start Somewhere. Stop by the Mason Lounge on a Tuesday evening and perhaps you'll hear it!
That's all for now. Cheerio!
