I hope you're all doing well! I realize that I haven't brought you up to speed on my musical endeavors lately, so we have a lot to catch up on. The most important info I have to share, however, is that I'll be hitting the road for a little tour in the southeast this summer! I'll also be working on my first full-length album, which has me very excited.
A few weeks ago, I finished my junior year of college at Ole Miss. It was a challenging but awesome year, and I can now officially say I'll never have to take another Spanish class again! (Super pumped about that. I'm bad at foreign languages, although I wish I wasn't.)
I've had some exciting developments with my music this spring, not the least of which were some very fun spring shows! Additionally, my number of online listeners is at an all-time high and going up! While the numbers are small compared to some artists, it's been inspiring to see that my music is being heard in cities and countries around the world that I've never visited. I want to travel and see those places one day, but it's cool to think that in small some way, I've already been there through my music. Wow, I'm getting WAY too deep right now!
Looking ahead, Summer 2017 has big things in store! After a few fun trips and a little time off to experience some new adventures/places, I will be hitting the road in July/August to play shows across the southeast. We'll have a few big full-band shows as well as several intimate acoustic gigs. The tour will visit some of my favorite venues and cities but will also include my first shows in a number of new towns! The fall has some big things in store as well, I just can't announce them yet!
I'll begin announcing the summer shows one at a time starting next week, so be on the lookout to see if we're coming to your town!
I've written the majority of my next album, and I am so excited to share the new songs with you! I truly believe this group of new songs may have the most potential of any crop of songs I've ever written. When the time comes, I'm so excited to see how they come to life in the studio. The logistics and details are still being worked out, but my hope is to break ground on the recording process late this summer!
I released videos of acoustic versions of "Find My Way" and "Name" this spring, and I will soon be releasing another video! I won't give it away yet, but your hint is that it's a piano arrangement of one of my favorite John Mayer songs.
In summary, spring was fun, lots of shows coming up this summer, and new music is on the horizon!
As always, thank you so much for the continued support of my music career.
Till next time, take care and enjoy the start of your summer! I'll see you at a show!
