I've been spending a lot of time in the studio this week -- I even got a chance to jam with the amazing local drummer, Andrew Dickson, who is usually off on tour. It went so well we are talking about doing something "serious" -- maybe even try to line up a gig in town. That would be cool.

Simultaneously, I am getting geared up for the annual holiday visit with Sam Byrd, which looks like it really will happen. I cannot tell you how excited I am! Additionally, we are also putting together a new Bandcamp album culled from last year's sessions. Stay tuned...

It's almost Christmas!


Of course, we have to get through this election first. I try to avoid politics on my blog, but please, America, do the right thing.
