It’s been a while. We’ve been busy with lots of stuff, separately and together, way more than we can tell you right now. But I’ve got a bunch of solo shows coming up over the next month, in Seattle and my new home of Yakima, and that’s why I’m writing to you.
First up, two very cool Seattle shows at my favorite venues in town. On Thursday, October 29 at The Royal Room, I’ll be opening for my good friend Brian Saunders as he celebrates the vinyl release of his terrific new platter, (it’s about) time. I’ll be joined by Mr. Daniel Walker on keys in performing a bunch of my new solo compositions. Admission is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted!
Then, on Thursday, November 5, I’ll take the stage all by my lonesome at the swankiest venue in town, The Triple Door, opening for the fantastic Canadian duo Whitehorse. Tickets are $15 and available here. It’s always an honor to play this stage, and I hope to see some friendly faces rattling their silverware out there.
I’ve also got a handful of fun winery gigs in the Yakima area throughout November: Friday, November 5 at Gilbert Cellars‘ downtown tasting room, Saturday, November 14 at Wilridge Vineyards (with my good buddy James Dean Kindle), and Friday, November 20 at Treveri Cellars. All shows are free and open to the public – check the Shows page for start times.
Finally, I wanted to share a version of George Gerswhin’s immortal “Someone to Watch Over Me” that Johnny Sangster and I cooked up a few months back – call it a curiosity or a promise of things to come (or both). I hope you enjoy it!
See you out there,
