Happy New Year!
I'm excited about 2012. Jill and I visited family and friends in St. Louis over the holidays and had a wonderfully exhausting time. We capped off the trip with a 17 hour drive with our cats, Grandma's piano, and Grandpa's rocking chair in tow, all successfully unloaded at 4am in chilly Brooklyn.
The pipeline is already pretty full for the beginning of the year...
In December I started playing with Shotcafe, a Spanish rock band that performs at least once a week way uptown, and I'll continue to work with them well into 2012.
Collaborations! I've started some long distance co-writing with drummer Travis Whitmore for what we hope will be a new album this year. Additionally, Calley Bliss and I continue working on the project we started last Summer before she moved to Boise. We're working on a tour for this summer.
Finally, I continue working with Dave Hahn on MusicianWages and a myriad of related projects. A couple of my articles will even be published in books this year. Once they're in print, I'll let you know!
Thanks for stopping by and for all your support in 2011. I wish you the best for 2012.
