Game Day Record Release Party - August 4, Cat's Cradle Back Room, Chapel Hill NC
Friends, I am happy to announce that the record release party for Game Day is happening August 4 at Cat's Cradle Back Room in Chapel Hill NC. I'll be sharing the festivities with the gracious and talented Anne-Claire whose album is also being fêted. We will have Chessa Rich opening the evening; Peter Holsapple Combo shall rock directly afterward for the better part of an hour, followed by Anne-Claire and her band. Without being too cocky, I'm thinking this show will likely sell out so it might behoove you'uns to get your tickets in advance. Copies of Game Day will be available for purchase at the show if you haven't already gotten it by then. 😉
Outside The Hit Shed, Durham NC Hi everyone, Getting ready to start back up again, after a year-plus out of action onstage. I have five shows opening up for Tommy Prine (son of John) coming soon: August 6 - Georgia Theater (Athens GA) August 7 - Cat's Cradle Back Room (Chapel Hill NC) August 8 - The Grey Eagle (Asheville NC) September 3 - 118 North (Philadelphia PA) September 4 - Rams Head (Annapolis MD) I'm also going to open for the Connells , whose new album Steadman's Wake is superb: September 18 - The Eastern (Atlanta GA) You all probably already know about Our Back Pages (by Peter Holsapple & Chris Stamey) being released on LP and CD via Omnivore Recordings, but if not, here's a link to the new video for "Today Could Be the Day." The songs on OBP are from the catalog of The dB's but given new and interesting treatments by Chris and me. I've been working in The Hit Shed, my home studio, over the months, writing a
Today, December 3, 2021, I have released a new single on Bandcamp entitled CANCELLED. Just to be clear, the song is called CANCELLED. There was some question on social media whether the release had BEEN cancelled, which it had not, as it was just released. Or dropped, if you can do that with ephemeral stuff like downloads. You can buy it here . And you can watch my lyric video here . I hope you like it. Remember I'm heading out on a house concert tour in March, so come to a show in your neck of the woods!
Hi everyone, I'd like to take this opportunity to write to you about performing a house concert in your area (maybe even in your own home). Last week, I was able to enlist the invaluable services of Tina Dunn to book a tour of house concerts in early March of 2022. Tina is encouraging potential house concert hosts for me to contact her either on her Facebook page or her email . Right now, I'm also trying to come up with some bonus incentives for house concert attendees. Beer coozies are probably out, but possibly handwritten copies of my lyrics? My penmanship is still fairly excellent. I'm also going to put together a 'house concert special' CD for these show that will 'represent' the format I play in, AND you can play it in your car CD player on the way home! My plan is to play out as much as I can, as many places as I can for as long as I can and as long as there are people who want to hear me. Thanks again for staying interested in my music
