Hey y’all! I can’t believe its been a year since I last posted anything on here; time flies. Luckily, I return with a new song that I wrote in honor of a young Midshipman who died heroically fighting the British during the War of 1812, back in the day when the US Navy didn’t give up a ship lightly. Be sure to remember in your prayers Midshipman James Butler Sigourney and all those who have died defending our Nation. Hope y’all enjoy! Sigourney’s Last Stand
So I’ve been busy as all get out this summer with way too many projects to go and keep up with! But I found a moment to write a post and let y’all know whats going on. So, this week I played the Camel and the Stuck on a Beach music festival with the lovely Miss Maggie Rainwater and had a grand time of it! This September I’ll be playing hither and thither on my own and with Miss Maggie from Richmond to Kinsale to Whitestone to Kilmarnock so be sure and check out my schedule with hyperlinks I don’t feel like reposting letting y’all know where I’ll be!
So Mr. Sam Sheline, the director of the documentary Add One Back (the documentary I provided the sound track for last fall) has very kindly uploaded two excellent videos featuring your’s truly pickin’ and grinnin’ and singing a couple songs. Be sure and check ’em out and share ’em with your friends! Enjoy!
Alrighty, got a gig up in the mountains next Saturday, the 24th, playing in Staunton at the grand opening of the Shenandoah Valley Brewing Company‘s new tap room, starting around 7 or so that evening! Really looking forward to playing a new venue, going to be a lot of fun!
Exciting news! My #TinyDeskConcert contest video was one of the featured entries on the local NPR website! You can check it out here,
Welp, I just got back to the Neck after visiting a lot of close friends and family up in New England! Had the opportunity to pick a few tunes over at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge; had a lot of fun over at Geoff Bartley’s Monday Night Open Mic there. Can’t wait to get up to New England again soon! Here’s “Busted Blues” and “Broken Shards“!
About a month ago, just before Thanksgiving, a film crew stopped by the oyster farm where I work to shoot some footage for a documentary about the environmental benefits of farming oysters. Somewhere in the course of things, the film’s writer and director, Sam Sheline, heard some of my guitar pickin’ and songs and asked if I’d be interested in recording some tunes to be used as the soundtrack for his documentary. I was more than happy to oblige and this weekend Mr. Sheline has unveiled a quite excellent documentary about oysters and their contributions to a healthy ecosystem. The documentary also features a number of original songs and melodic improvisations by myself which have been incorporated into the film with the utmost care and attention. So, without further ado, here is Mr. Sheline’s documentary, “Add One Back“. I hope y’all enjoy!
P.S. I would sooner see the world burn in an apocalyptic global warming catastrophe then give up enjoying a bloody medium rare filet mignon, but hey, that’s just me 😉
