CD Release Party

This Friday, January 23rd 2015, is the RANCH\HOUSE CD Release Party at Rosella's Coffee in San Antonio, TX.  We have a great night of music planned.  The event will kick off at 8pm with Patrick Kay (of The Boxknives), 9pm RANCH\HOUSE, 10:30 Blue Healer.  

The past most has been fantastic. The CD Release on January 1st 2015 and I was out in West Texas camping in Big Bend.  We went to Terlingua, an abandon cinnabar (Mercury) mine, ghost town near Big Bend and very close to Mexico.  There is a intriguing restaurant and music venue there called "The Starlight Theatre" where they happened to be having a Townes Van Zandt Tribute night.  They were asking for volunteers to play and my friends volunteered me.  The place was packed and the only Townes Van Zandt song I really know is Pancho & Lefty.  The event was hosted by Butch Hancock and when it was my turn I asked if I could play a Bob Dylan song called "Copper Kettle" because I thought Townes would really like that song.  Then I played an original song that is in the song writing style that Townes created.  

This experience was amazing. I was honored to play there and Butch Hancock and Jimmy Dale Gilmore both shook my hand and told me they enjoyed my tunes.  It was a special night, and it felt so magical out in the desert on the day the RANCH\HOUSE CD became available online.  

I hope everyone is enjoying the Album.  It has been a long time in the making of this record and it really embodies the last 10 years of my life.  I have a lot of songs I would love to record, but the ones I chose to record on "What Maps Don't Show" tell a progressive story of these 10 years and hopefully convey growth and integrity.  

I'm lucky to have such great friends and fans that have encouraged me over the years.
