It’s been a fun and interesting winter so far. I went down to Kansas City over Thanksgiving with Scott Schoenbeck and recorded a new record with Josh Berwanger. The record is turning out to be the coolest record I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing on. The songs are amazing and the sounds are off the charts. It was produced, engineered and mixed by Doug Boehm. Doug’s incredible at what he does and I can’t wait for everyone to hear this record.
Right after the change of the year I headed out west with Trapper Schoepp to open up for a week and half of shows opening for one of my favorite bands the Jayhawks. The shows couldn’t have gone better and I got to play the Fillmore in San Francisco finally! What a fantastic venue. Some of my favorite parts of that run were hanging out with Trapp & Co., Greg Franklin, Wexler, Mitch, Marques, Michelle, Moondawg, Walt & meeting Joey Cape, the Limbeck dudes, Logan & Jess, Doug and getting to stay on the Queen Mary a couple nights. Coolest hotel ever.
Then when we returned I got to play Pablove 6 with 20 other musicians and do a tribute to The Replacements classic album ‘Pleased To Meet Me’. Such a great night and I thought all the guys and girl sitting in did a bang up job. It’s such a good cause. If you get a chance, visit the Pablove link above and donate money to kids and their families in need.
This SXSW we’re doing our 2nd Annual Good Land Records Day Party on Saturday March 21st at Freedmen’s BBQ! Stay tuned for details because we’ll be announcing very soon! We’re so excited for the couple new releases we have coming out with Dwight Twilley & Berwanger!
Peace & Love!
