Twangover Now Available Online
I had a great time at Passim last night. Thanks to everyone who came out to the show. It was seriously one of my favorite gigs I've ever played. Audience was quiet during the tunes and loud as hell in between tunes! A huge thanks to Matt Smith, David Tanklefsky and all who donated to the record. Looking forward to playing there again! Thanks guys! Booyah!
The new album is now available in multiple formats from my online shop at Village Produce... one guitar, one amplifier, no effects.Tuesday, February 26th, 2013
Help Fund My Solo Guitar Record
I've always been a huge fan of solo guitar. Joe Pass, Lenny Breau, Chet atkins and Merle Travis are probably my favorite guitarists of all time. And the one thing they all have in common is playing solo. In April I'll spend a day in a beautiful Victorian House in Arlington, MA and record an album. One guitar, one amplifier, one microphone. That's it. A couple takes of each song (the album will end up having 12 tracks) and we'll have it in the can.
Recording this way is obviously very cost effective. But after the music is done being played, that's where the money comes in... mixing, mastering, artwork and duplication. Each of those components costs roughly $250, which is where you get $1,000 as the pledge goal. With my kickstarter projects, I work hard to get you the best record I can in the shortest amount of time that I can. Record in April, CD release show in May, CDs mailed out in June. Simple. So I guess that's it. Thank you for all of the support over the years. I have the most encouraging and dedicated fans a guy could ask for. Let's make this recors happen!Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

Live Recording Round 2
First of all, thank you to everyone who came out to The Lizard Lounge. The show was a lot of fun for us all.
Due to recording issues that were beyond my control, I'm putting together another live show to record this album. This time I'll be teaming up with engineer/producer Adam Taylor and we're doing it in a studio with a LIVE AUDIENCE. The band is Jason Cohen on keys, Dean Cassell on bass, and Mike Piehl on drums.
We will perform at the legendary Q Division Studios in Somerville. We will have special guests (to be announced soon) as well as two brand new songs. Ed Valaskus has hosted these kinds of shows before and they're always a blast. This is sure to be a very special night. Don't miss it!
