So here we are wrapping up 2008. Man I gotta tell ya’, it’s been an amazing year. I was touring all over supporting my duet album with my good friend and inspiration Don Ross, and we had a great time. Thanks to everyone who came out to see us! This year, I got to perform in the UK, Canada, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Denmark, Portugal, and Reunion Island. In all, it was 151 shows!
Last week, I picked up two guitars from my favorite luthier in the world, Michael Greenfield from Montreal. These guitars are PROFOUND. I’ll be touring with them all next year, so you’ll get to see and hear them live in ’09. www.greenfieldguitars.com
And ’09 is coming together on the tour books, folks. In January, I’ve got a gig in New York and I’ll be at the NAMM show in Anaheim. I’ll be hitting most of the US in February and March. April is looking like Portugal and France followed by a tour of the UK in May. This summer, I’ll be hitting music festivals around the globe and in September I should be releasing my new album. The tunes I am working on these days are some of my best compositions yet, I feel. I can’t wait to start sharing them with you, so I’ll be doing some of the new stuff during the shows leading up to September.
Once again, I just wanted to thank everyone for their support this year. It’s been quite a bit of work flying all over the place and driving from gig to hotel every night. But getting on stage and playing for you and meeting all of you, that is truly the joy of my life!
I wish you all a great holiday and I hope 2009 is filled with much success and happiness!
All of my best,
