Hi Everybody – Summer 2013 update, lots of news:
Just posted a bunch of new tour dates added for the Rocky Mountain states, East Coast and Midwest plus some makeup dates in early January for the West Coast. After that I’m at NAMM in late January 2014.
As a lot of you know my wife and I are thrilled to be adding to our small family early this fall so I cut back a bunch on touring and international travel. My plan is to tour internationally in 2014 but not as heavily as I have done recently. I will make every effort to visit your country but this will mean a smaller number of dates. I really hope you don’t mind traveling just a bit to come hang with me! Keep an eye on the tour calendar here for updates:
I am working on a bunch of new tunes and will be releasing music later this fall and into next year. My plan is instead of releasing one album with a ton of new material I am going to spread out music so new stuff comes out more frequently and so that I can balance my family life with the composing, recording and touring. I am eager to share the new stuff with you all and it will be spread out over the next 18 months.
I have a lot of surprises up my sleeve with the recordings and its gonna be a blast revealing these when they’re ready.
Clinics, contests, and prizes update:
As many of you know I have a deep working relationship with Ernie Ball Strings. They have enabled me to do a bunch of clinics this year so far and we have more planned. The turn outs have been incredible. Please check my tour page as I list the clinics as soon as we get them confirmed.
As for the Ernie Ball strings I really do play the hell out of them and they are great for touring and recording. As such, I am really pleased to be working with them and we have a couple of really cool contests that we are going to announce shortly. This will be everything from a one-on-one masterclass with me to free strings to signed memorabilia and a whole lot more. Continue reading on facebook and my web page for details.
Alright, that’s about it for now. Time to go back in the studio and work on some tunes. See you all soon and thanks beyond thanks for your continued support!
