Spring is here… with a Vengeance! It’s amazing. Last week it was 48 degrees; today it’s 93. I say, “Turn it up, Man!”
The other day I had an epiphany: It was one year ago when I boxed up everything I owned, left Atlanta without looking back. And without ever thinking I would play music again. At that moment I looked to my left - Alvin was belting out “Sugar Moon”, Johnny X was stomping the floor, the fellas were focused; I was on stage, playing second guitar at the Broken Spoke with Alvin Crow and the Pleasant Valley Boys. I completely stopped playing, I couldn’t help it… I started tearing up.
So here I am. I love Texas and I was told Texas loves me back. I sure hope so. I plan on doing my best keeping classic country and honky tonk alive for all my new friends, fans and family here in Austin.
I have been told that I’ve had more than my share of drama, heartache, bad-luck, you name it. I do my best to not think about it. I would rather count my blessings. Meeting so many beautiful people. Being received with a hearty handshake and welcoming smile. Enjoying the beauty of a wild Texas Flower.
Bob Appel is my hero. If it were not for him, I probably would not be playing, singing, writing and recording music. I will always be in his debt of gratitude. More to come about great people who are in my life here in Austin. For now, lets get on with some current news.
Lots of great things coming down the highway. Doing a video shoot at the Little Longhorn for a promotional video plus extra footage for videos to come. Keep a lookout for that to be completed real soon. Have lots of great gigs coming up. I am adding more and more of my original material into the set. Hoping to have an album out before the end of the year.
By the way, I am still a licensed realtor in the state of Texas. I have been helping my musician pals and friends find rentals and home to buy. Having a background in handyman service, electrician, home builder, etc, (which lots of musician have done over the years when things were dry), I am super glad to help you out finding a place. Just give a shout.
Until then, keep L-I-V-I-N!
ps: Send me an email and I will add you to my “Coffee y Tacos” mailer.
