Happy New Year! I had a whirlwind of fun holidays, including the epic return of Two Dollar Bill and his Bad Pennies to the Richmond stage, great to see so many of you there! 2023 was full of adventures and music, and looking ahead at 2024 which will bring travels for music, pet-sitting, and more!
First show of 2024 is at London Brewing, for a Sunday afternoon double bill on January 28th, with the Onion Honey Duo! 2pm to 4pm. Dan Henshall along on this one on mandolin; enjoy some brews and tunes on a winter afternoon!
Thursday, February 8th, I'm back at The Richmond on my Birthday! Lots of Surprise Special Guests for a chill Thursday night, starting early at 8:00pm, Pay What You Can - cash only. No Cake, no candles, no wishes!
I was thrilled to be invited by my old friend Jay Santarossa to be part of his new podcast, Into Music Lyrics, we got in-depth talking about my song “Currents Collide”, give a listen: https://open.spotify.com/episode/7FCuB3ffBaw5NPxR6rq55d?si=6UnwYMMVRq-LJR0nfs9vmQ
CJAM 99.1fm's 40th Anniversary was celebrated in November, and a live version of “Scavengers” recorded on “The Windsor Scene” a few years back was included on CJAM's Live Off The Floor Compilation, you can get it on Cassette and get a special Zine with interviews and photos, a great way to support community radio in Windsor/Detroit!
Check it out on Bandcamp: https://cjam-fm.bandcamp.com/album/cjam-live-off-the-floor-ii-from-the-vault-2006-2023
And in more exciting news; a song I recorded with my pal Barry James Payne was included in a TV Show! Windecker Road Film's Graeme Bachiu asked us to record a version of “The Farmer Feeds Us All” to be featured in “Shane Dreams of Sweet Corn” airing on Fibe TV!
Still aglow from bringing Two Dollar Bill back to The Richmond, here's a great video filmed by Kevan Carmen, capturing some of a very special night of music and friends!
See you on my travels coming up soon - Happy New Year!
