Trail of the Lonesome

Hey, I hope everyone out there is doing well! Updates to this site will continue to be pretty infrequent for the time being as I am focused artistically on Trail of the Lonesome. If you enjoy my music be sure to click that link and follow us over there as Alicia and I are currently recording demos of new tunes that we hope to release by the end of this year. We also just announced that we are returning to Valley Fest next month, which we are super excited about and looking forward to. Hopefully we will see some of you there.

Subsidence Blues (to the tune of Sweet Home Chicago)

I did this back during the spring semester to help another teacher out. Figured I'd share it here for kicks and grins. In 2002 I did a similar tune at the UVaWise football team talent show that included a line about having visions of being in Boston, but, in reality, only suffering from heat exhaustion. Something about Sweet Home Chicago just makes it the ultimate make up a funny/interesting blues parody for me.

This year so far......

Really sad to hear about the passing of Chris Cornell this morning. It's been a tough year. If you want some more details on some of what's been happening for me personally go check out the latest blog post on Trail of the Lonesome.

The good news is that I'm working hard on booking shows now that things are (crosses fingers and knocks on wood) settling down. Alicia and I are also getting back on track with writing new TOTL songs. Can't wait to get out and play and get back into the studio to make some new music. Hopefully we will see you all soon.
