New record is almost done...see a video sneak peak!
People have been asking me if I'm going to be releasing a new solo album any time soon. The answer to that question is yes! I've been really busy this year with working on other people's albums. I'm currently playing on, and producing albums for David Francey, Kristine Schmitt, and Tony Allen. Earlier in the year, I co-produced the latest release by The Slocan Ramblers entitled "Coffee Creek". All this is to say that, I've been so busy (and having so much fun) working on these projects, I sort of put my own record on the back burner. I do have about 3/4 of the record done though, and I will be finishing it off in early January. The album, entitled "Tumbling River" will be out at the end of February, so stay tuned. Until then, here's a video of one of the tunes that will be included. It's an original entitled "I Know Your Wandering Heart". Special thanks to my pals at Nimble Fingers Bluegrass and Old-Time Workshops for filming this last summer. I hope you enjoy
