Snow Days Are Great!

I remember loving snow days as a kid because I got to stay home from school. Now that I'm a teacher I get to live all that fun again. The snow and ice here in Knoxville has kept us tied up pretty good for the last week, but I have been able to track some rough demos of new songs for both myself and Trail of the Lonesome. Some of the Trail of the Lonesome stuff has a real Murder By Death feel to it, and my new solo stuff if delving deeper into heavy blues. I can't wait to get this stuff done and out for everyone to hear it! Hope everyone is staying warm and dry. It'll be spring before we know it.

Also, if you haven't already done so, please check out my friends Dallas Danger and Joe Cat. I'm looking forward to doing more shows with these fellas soon. They are both great songwriters.

Trail of the Lonesome Website and Social Media Now Active

Alicia and I had a great time playing at Clancy's in Knoxville last night. Way better than fighting the crowds for bread, milk, and eggs at the grocery store. French toast does sound pretty good now that we are iced in after all the weather today, though. We have decided to call our project Trail of the Lonesome, and we will have social media and a website up for our band very soon. (Update: these are now active) I'm very excited about the songs we have been working on. You guys and gals who enjoy Post Card will definitely like it, but it's different enough that it's not just Post Card-esque songs with female vocals added. Alicia has written some monster songs, just awesome stuff, and her vocals are killer too. We will be in the studio later this month to finish up a little Trail of the Lonesome primer, and I can't wait to get it out everyone. Stay warm folks, and may the whiskey outlast the cold.

Knoxville Sunday and Website Maintenance

Alicia and I will be at Clancy's in Knoxville on Sunday for an early show at 6PM. The website may be down briefly this weekend as we transfer domain registration and update a few things. No worries, though, we aren't going anywhere, and the site will be back up quickly. I hope everyone is staying warm and well.

More Shows and News Coming Soon

Alicia and I are getting ready to hit the studio again this month to hopefully wrap up our EP. We are also working on a new website and social media stuff specifically for our stuff together. We are whittling down our list of possible names for the project right now, and we will have an announcement and site launch very soon. I'm also working on booking shows for us and myself for spring and summer. I plan on heading out as much as possible during the break from teaching, and she will be with me whenever possible. I'm very excited about what we have in the works. Hope to see everyone soon!
