September 2014 Update

This year has gone by so fast. It’s already September?

This is the time of year when I start saying “it’s pretty much Christmas.”

Between all of my touring and Ali’s out-of-town work, I’ve been feeling uprooted for the past few months. And in limbo. I’ll be able to tell you more about that very soon. It’s all good stuff, though!

I’m in Philadelphia right now, but tomorrow I fly out to meet up with Afie, Jason and Felicity in Fredericton for a couple weeks of touring.

Somewhere in the midst of all this travelling and chaos, I’m going to get a couple new albums released. It Will Record, my new one with Dafydd Hughes, is just about ready to go. I’m just getting the licenses sorted out for a couple cover tunes.

The Finalboss album is on its way, too.

It Will Record – Album Preview!

It Will Record cover

Dafydd Hughes and I have recorded another album of instrumentals. It Will Record features a few of my originals, a few of Dafydd’s originals, and a few of our favourite cover tunes.

No overdubs, straight to tape. Recorded in my living room over a couple days.

We’ll be releasing the full album soon, but for now you can listen to these two preview tracks.

Enjoy!

8 Years

Today is our 8th anniversary! One year ago on this day we got married in the park.

I’m in Los Angeles today, and Ali is in Philadelphia. That’s the way it goes with our work schedules. Knowing we weren’t going to be in the same place at the same time today, we decided to celebrate this anniversary a few days ago in New York.

We squished into the photo booth at the Ace hotel to capture the moment…
