One last hoorah before I go. Please come to Mississippi Studios next Friday, August 20th and let me thank you for the last 10 years in person. It’s going to be a really lovely night. RSVP to the Facebook Event Page HERE and get tickets HERE.
DJ Girlfriends, Matrimony & The Gentry are opening & I’ll be playing a short set of older songs by myself, then The Gentry is going to join me back on stage for a set of my new songs and new versions of my old songs with my full band. It’s gonna be epic.
Fake blood, real tears, loud music. Let’s party. I love you guys. Come dance with me next Friday!!! I’ll also be raising money for Q Center this night so you can be a do-gooder and dance at the same time!
Hey folks. Well, it’s been quite a week. I figured out how to embed YouTube playlists finally so I decided to post the full record (rough mix, unmastered) here so you could hear it! As of now there are no plans to release it in place so…I figured why not post it while it’s fresh. The last hoorah may as well have a soundtrack, right?

As many of you have probably heard, I’ve been hard at work on a new record for the past 6 months. We finished this past week & will now be entering the next phase of the game. This is the part where we get serious, start mixing, bring in our musician and singer friends to make things even better, drink the awesome sauce, etc.
The record has taken shape in amazing ways. I’ve been working with a new producer, Bryan Cecil (aka Y-Tron, who also produced my cover of The Dandy Warhols song “The Last High“), and we have tons of talented people on board to lend their talents to this new group of tracks. The next few months are going to be very exciting as the record continues to make its way toward your ears. I’ll be sure and keep you posted as we go…but you know how I roll: It won’t be long before we leak a few of the newbies your way.
On top of all of this I have been working on a video for “Bleed Him Out” (with Justin Adams, director of “Water Wings“), gearing up for tour around the clock with The Gentry, and as of last week…hosting my own TV show. Lots going on. I’ll be announcing tour dates soon, and will let you know more about my adventures in television as they unfold.
As many of you already know, I have been working with a new producer (Y-TRON) on another record for a few months now. We are releasing our version of The Dandy Warhols‘ song “The Last High” next Tuesday (the 19th) as a sneak-peek of what’s coming later this year.
I spent the day recording and mixing the first track “Fall Into New Arms” off the new record (which has yet to be titled) all day Saturday with Jeremy Sherrer (at The Dandys’ studio) and I am feeling really excited about this new group of songs. Gonna be a GOOD year in music land. Thank god my personal life fell apart last year, eh? It’s equaling out to a million new songs as a result. Oh, irony: I hate you, I love you.
For those of you who haven’t picked up my latest release “From Pillar To Post”, there’s a contest to win FREE COPIES OF THE CD over at the “You Just Get Me” blog! Check it out HERE.
