Well it is mid February 2016 which means that in less than 3 months I will be back in the recording studio to lay down the tracks for my next album and I am SO EXCITED! i will be returning to Tiny Telephone studios to record with John Vanderslice. However, this time we will be recording in their brand new Oakland studio. I was so utterly pleased with the results of the last album that I could not resist working with John again. I have been writing a bit and I will have a fair amount of new songs but I may have to dip into the vault of older tunes to round out the album. I am hoping to record 14 again and then choose the best 11 or 12 for the album. I am even considering going with vinyl this time, since I want to make at least one vinyl album before they put me 6 feet under and you never know when that is going to happen.
I had a great show at the Fremont Theater on January 24, 2016 opening up for Paul Thorn. The Fremont is our little gem of an art deco theater here in SLO, CA. I had such a nice time playing there. The sound was exquisite and the audience was attentive. That is about all I can ask for. I played mostly new songs that will appear on the upcoming album. Oakland, here we come!
